FESPA Asia 2017 – supported by Asian Exhibition Services (AES Ltd) and leading local print associations led by the Thai Screen Printing and Graphic Imaging Association (TSGA) – will offer this emerging market learning, business networking and growth opportunities.
FESPA’s Divisional Director, Ms Roz McGuinness comments “With the now well-established annual exhibition in China, it is time for FESPA to return to the Pan Asia region with FESPA Asia, and our natural choice was to return to Thailand. Our desire to build demand for print by reinvesting in our print communities is matched by the enthusiasm of our regional associations with whom we will be working closely to deliver both educational programmes to support the advancement of print in the region along with the exhibition bringing the global and regional suppliers of screen, digital print and signage to Thailand. Our aim is to have a lasting legacy across Asia through various initiatives in the years to come.”
David Aitken, Managing Director of AES, Asian Partners of FESPA Asia, explained, “We are delighted to be working with FESPA to bring to the ASEAN market a regionally specialized event with a global reputation. As the AEC rapidly unfolds, providing extensive open-market opportunities in this expansive region, the strategic timing of FESPA Asia 2017 could not be better.”
