Fespa China has boosted floorspace by 13 per cent to make its third edition the biggest yet with the wide format market booming.
Organisers say the exhibition in Shanghai starting October 21 will fill the 12,000sqm floor with the latest industry technology launches, product innovation and content-led programs.
Themed ‘find your key to success’, the organisers say the event will provide visitors with ‘inspiration and skills to unlock their business potential’.

Fespa divisional director Roz McGuinness says the show is back for its third instalment due to high demand and unprecedented positive customer engagement.
“Our launch event in Shanghai in 2013 was met with a fantastic response, and we developed the event further last year in Guangzhou,” he says.
“We are looking forward to building on this success for a bigger and more comprehensive event in 2015. With the number of international exhibitors in attendance, it is clear that Fespa is defining its market position as a key regional event for the major brands.”
The event’s annual cycle sees it alternate between venues in Shanghai and Guangzhou. Organisers say this enables Fespa to engage with a broad cross-section of the Chinese market and attract many international exhibitors and visitors.
Global exhibitors already confirmed for the October 2015 event include Kornit, Siser, Dgen, Mimaki, Keundo, Asialink (for Anajet) and Synnex (for Roland).
Local participants include Denishi Denbishi Fine Chemical, Ever-Bright Printing Machine, Shenyang Shicheng Printing Machinery, Dongguan and Suzhou Yihui Printing Machinery Factory, Invision Printing Materials, Rugao Tianyuan Garment Printing and Caiyun Printing Supplier.
More than 9500 visitors attended the inaugural Fespa China 2013 exhibition from 77 countries.
In 2014, attendance grew to 15,166 from 91 countries, cementing Fespa China’s position as a regional event.
