TPI were delighted to go to FESPA 2015 in Cologne in late May. We were there to attend the show, hopefully bag a prize at the awards and see what was new in the world of Small format and Large Format Digital Print and Signage. We were not disappointed.
So what is Fespa? It is the largest and most extensive international wide format print exhibition for screen, digital and textile print technology in Europe. It is not a standard print exhibition. It provides the opportunity to view and demonstrate the latest print technology, from software to finishing, hardware to consumables, source new substrates or experiment with new inks for screen, digital or textile printing applications.
TPI were also in Cologne as part of our nomination for the Fespa Print awards. The Awards show case the very best of the FESPA community’s print skills, with each entry represented by A case study of why the print was produced, a sample of the print; and Pictures of the print in place. TPI had number of entries were shortlisted which in itself is some achievement considering the hundreds of international entries received. Whilst we did not win gold our nominations were pride of place at the exhibition messe which made us very proud. Please see some pictures.
The TPI team came away from Fespa with some great new ideas, confirmation of our orders for €750,000 capital investement programme and some great new materials and ideas, more of which you will be seeing and hearing about over the next month.
Hope to see you next year at Fespa 2016 in Amsterdam!!
