With a compelling line-up of 375 exhibiting companies, the FESPA Global Print Expo 2022 brought the speciality print community together for four motivational days in Berlin (31st May to 3rd June 2022). The event attracted a high quality, international audience of senior decision-makers who travelled from 126 countries, with Germany, Italy, Poland, Netherlands and the UK delivering the largest visitor delegations.
Exhibitors of all sizes and across all areas of the show expressed their delight at being back at a live FESPA event, with many commenting on the energy they felt at the show and confident of positive commercial outcomes from their participation.
Head of Global Print Expo at FESPA, Michael Ryan said: “Every industry is changed by the pandemic, and print is no exception, but this show proved beyond doubt that print is resilient, creative, agile and focused on the future. Our strapline promised ‘Print In Motion’ and this came to life in Berlin, with an incredible sense of forward momentum and commitment to positive progress on areas like sustainability.”
FESPA Global Print Expo 2022, together with European Sign Expo, attracted 11647 unique visitors, a 48% increase on the Autumn 2021 event, with return trips over multiple days bringing total attendance to 15969 visits. Analysis of the pre-event registration data provided by the 53% of visitors who chose to reveal their investment budget confirms significant readiness to invest at or soon after the show. Among these delegates, the collective median spend amounted to €1.3 billion, not accounting for those visitors who did not indicate their plans.
