Asia Print Expo 2019 took place from 21 to 23 February in Bangkok, Thailand and has been hailed a success by both visitors and exhibitors, cementing the event’s position as a leading meeting point for Asian screen, digital and textile printers and signage.

4,501 individual visitors travelled to Asia Print Expo 2019 from 54 countries. Taking into account visitors attending the event across multiple days, the show attracted a total of 4,681 visitors, an increase of 8% compared with FESPA Asia 2018.
Visitors from the host country, Thailand, made up 80% of the audience. The other top ten countries were China, Korea, India, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Philippines and Sri Lanka, underlining the event’s reach in the ASEAN region and beyond.

Exhibitors commented positively on the seniority and purchasing intent of visitors, reinforced by FESPA’s own visitor data, which shows that 68% of delegates were business owners or hold senior business positions and 83% of attendees were decision-makers or involved in the decision-making process.
Roz Guarnori, Exhibitions Director at FESPA, comments: “We’re delighted once again with the success of our pan-Asian exhibition in 2019. This was the first edition of the exhibition under the Asian Print Expo brand, which clearly defines the event and communicates FESPA’s sector focus. From our perspective the re-brand has contributed to an increase in total individual visitors and visitors from Thailand. Feedback from both exhibitors and visitors highlighted the importance they attach to this event, and reinforces our confidence in our proposition, both for the supplier community and for Asian printers and sign-makers.”
