FESPA Global Print Expo 2024 draws strong global audience

FESPA Global Print Expo 2024, European Sign Expo, Personalisation Experience and the inaugural Sportswear Pro (19 – 22 March 2024, RAI Amsterdam) attracted a global audience of senior decision-makers prioritising investments for business growth.

The four co-located events and the extensive feature and conference programme unveiled new opportunities, highlighting thousands of innovations and trends, as well as new vertical market prospects.

Firming up investment plans was high on the agenda of visitors to the four co-located events with 92 per cent of the audience looking to invest in equipment in the next 12 months. The collective median budget was more than €2.7 billion.

In line with this, the event attracted an international audience of senior decision-makers. 76 per cent of attendees were business owners, directors, partners or managers and 85 per cent of visitors shared that they are involved in the decision-making process for their business.

Over the four days, 12,706 unique visitors attended the events with 45 per cent of visitors attending for more than a day. Visitors travelled from 120 countries, the Netherlands, Germany, the UK, Italy, Belgium, France, Poland, Spain, Switzerland, and Sweden bringing the largest portion of the audience.

Michael Ryan, head of FESPA Global Print Expo, said feedback from visitors was extremely positive, praising the quality of FESPA’s international exhibiting community showcasing solutions dedicated to speciality print and signage.

“It’s a truly unique feeling to meet with so many like-minded businesses and to connect people from all around the world with the same purpose – to grow and develop our industry and this incredible community. I’m looking forward to seeing what the year brings in the wake of the events and I can’t wait for the multitude of ideas and investments from the show to pan out,” said Ryan.

With the biggest line-up of exhibitors to date for European Sign Expo 2024; the second iteration of Personalisation Experience with its brand new Personalise Make Wear feature; as well as the inaugural Sportswear Pro, the co-located events and content-led feature programme provided visitors with the opportunity to explore vertical markets, grow their business and expand their offering.

The line-up of global industry experts and thought leaders at the Personalisation Experience and Sportswear Pro conferences delivered a content-rich programme that attracted visitors from around the world, stimulating lively debates and networking conversations as well as new partnership opportunities.

FESPA Global Print Expo and European Sign Expo will return to Messe Berlin, Germany, from Tuesday 6 – Friday 9 May 2025.
