What a show Fespa was!
While we are all now back in the office and are catching up on everything we missed after being out at Fespa, we have been reflecting on some of the key highlights. The most positive of which was just how busy it was. The energy, the fantastic stands, the seminar programme, all topped off by the many great conversations we had with people from across the printing industry.
This positive spirit was similarly reflected in the Fespa Print Census with over half of the respondents indicating their intent to buy digital wide format printing equipment, with a mean spending plan of close to 100,000 Euro. Similarly a dramatic growth has been seen for textile printing with nearly 80% of respondents reporting an increase in demand, particularly for garments, decorative textiles and packaging. The result of which are customer demands are driving continued efforts to improve efficiency, enabling faster job turnaround, just-in-time delivery and personalisation.
So, where does this leave us at InkTec? Fortunately, for us many of these challenges are already being addressed by our in-house experts in our technical institute at Head Office, from the latest JETRIX printers to the research teams constantly innovating ink structures and formats to create the most advanced UV curable and SubliNova ink ranges. But, we are still going to be striving to stay ahead of the game!
