Global Print Expo, one of the printing industry’s biggest trade shows, will return to IFEMA – Feria de Madrid, Spain, from Oct. 6-8, 2020, along with its co-located events, European Sign Expo and Sportswear Pro.

The three exhibitions, which were originally scheduled to take place from March 24-27, had to be postponed due to the disruption caused by the COVID-19 outbreak in mainland Europe.

Global Print Expo is described as the “flagship event” of FESPA, a global federation of 37 national associations for the screen printing, digital printing and textile printing community.

“Despite the ongoing impact that the coronavirus is having on the speciality print sector, we’ve been overwhelmed by the strong demand from our global community for a FESPA platform in 2020,” FESPA CEO Neil Felton said. “Therefore, we are extremely pleased to confirm that our shows will be going ahead on these re-scheduled dates and we’re very grateful to IFEMA team, who have been fully supportive of our decision under the extraordinary circumstances.”

FESPA will provide further updates regarding the events in due course, Felton added.
