Starleaton Duo Heading for FESPA Hamburg


Sydney, April 13th 2017 – Starleaton’s CEO Ben Eaton and Product Manager John Buitenkamp will have a busy May as they fly to Europe for the FESPA Hamburg trade fair and will be straight into PacPrint preparations when they return.

“FESPA is a very important show for the wide format sign and display sector,” says Eaton, “This year marks the merging of FESPA Digital with the FESPA global print expo to create one all-encompassing event. It will also become annual instead of biennial, with Berlin and Munich announced as locations for FESPA 2018 and 2019 respectively.”

Australian and New Zealand visitors to FESPA Hamburg are encouraged to look out for Eaton and Buitenkamp at the show. “We have more product suppliers since the last FESPA , so will be around the stands a fair bit but messages can be left at the reception of Neschen (Hall A1-C35,) or Zünd (Hall B7- D30), the hall where you will also find Brett Martin (B7-G22). We will also spend time with our textile brand Georg+Otto Friedrich (B6-D42) and ColorPainter manufacturer OKI (B5-A52). It’s a big show over ten halls divided into Digital, Textile and Screen areas, with textiles occupying a bigger than ever area.”

Eaton adds: “Our new partnership with EFI means we will also spend time on their huge stand in Hall B7, directly opposite Zünd.”

The knowledge and potential new products that the Starleaton duo will bring back from the world’s largest wide format show will add value to a visit to their PacPrint stand E30 in Melbourne from May 23-26.

The FESPA global print expo takes place at Messe Hamburg, Germany from May 8-12 and appointments with Ben and John can be made before FESPA by emailing: zbennett@starleaton.com.au
