FESPA Digital Printing Europe 2008

As always, the quality of the exhibitors
and FESPA's ability to bring them
together for three days under the same
roof, creates a unique environment.
Indeed this environment has been
manufactured to enable you, as print
service providers, to seek out the
innovations that could transform your
businesses. FESPA Digital 2008 will be
40% bigger than 2006, and will once
again offer visitors much more than the
high-level product launches that are now
customary of FESPA exhibitions.

Supported by its corporate and platinum
sponsors HP, EFI, Gandi Innovations and
Kiian, along with global technology
partner Xaar, the event will open to a new
FESPA Digital Daily Live presentation,
which will take place in the foyer of the
main entrance at the start of the show.
FESPA Digital Daily Live will be an eagerly
anticipated live interview, in which Val
Hirst, editor of FESPA World magazine,
will welcome visitors with brief highlights
of the hot topics and news taking place on
the show floor; including breakthrough
product and technology launches being
unveiled by exhibitors.

In addition, the ever-popular showcase
theatre will feature free digital
presentations, featuring well-known
industry experts covering a
comprehensive range of topics; while
winning entries from the HP supported
FESPA Digital Print Awards 2008, will be
showcased in a prominent on-site display.

This year, for the first time, FESPA Digital
2008 will also be complemented by
FESPA's dedicated Digital Textile
Conference in the adjacent Crowne Plaza
hotel (31st March & 1st April), giving
digital textile printers - or those venturing
into this growth application - the
opportunity to combine a visit to the
exhibition with a focused two-day
learning experience.

FESPA events continue to provide the
launch platform for suppliers to introduce
new products and technologies to the
marketplace, and Geneva will be no
exception. Just some of the many hot
news items planned for the show include:

The first showing of the enhanced SubZero
range, the world leading inkjet UV system
from UK company, Integration Technology
Ltd; and the commercial launch of Screen
Europe's Truepress Jet2500U printing
solution, first previewed to wide acclaim
at FESPA in Berlin. Cromajet will showcase
its Digipress roll-to-sheet high-speed
printer, while on show for the first time at
a major European exhibition are EFI's
