Fespa Global Print Expo 2019 attracted 20,780 individual visitors from 137 countries over the four day show in May at Messe Munchen. Total attendance including repeat visits reached 34,104, with almost two thirds of all visitors committing two or more days to the show.
The host country delivered the largest national delegation of visitors at 25% of the total number, followed by Italy (7%) and Austria (5%). Overall, the exhibition attracted a diverse international audience from far beyond Europe, including visitors from as far afield as Israel, Turkey, China, Japan, the USA and Australia.
Digital print machinery was singled out as the key area of interest for 41% of visitors, followed by digital print consumables (31%). This is matched by the proportion of visitors interested in textile and fabric - reflected in the launch of Sportswear pro, which will be co-located with Fespa Global Print Expo in Madrid next March.
