Roz McGuinness, FESPA Divisional Director, comments: “It’s great to be back in Shanghai for the third iteration of FESPA China and to see the support we’ve gained from the Chinese and International print community. The 30% increase in floor space shows the value that exhibitors and visitors put in the FESPA China event. The exhibitor line-up will be a fantastic showcase of the latest technologies and solutions from both regional and international manufacturers and suppliers.
“Printers increasingly looking to expand and diversify their business are seeking to embed new technologies to complement their existing offering. FESPA China, in conjunction with CSGIA, will provide visitors with a forum to gain knowledge through the educational sessions and share experiences and insights with their peers. All the tools are there to help printers find their keys to success.”
