Fespa CEO Neil Felton said: “To plan investments and make informed decisions, printers need to be able to see new products, learn about technological developments and access advice from experts on products, applications and avenues of diversification and development.

“Speaking to printers in our communities, it is clear that while their strong preference is to do all of this at a live event, there is an urgent need to access information in a timely manner.

“They want the ability to ask questions, receive advice, interact with suppliers and nurture relationships with like-minded entrepreneurs. By launching the FIT Virtual Event Series, we are supporting our community in the most effective way possible until we can meet again in the real world at a live Fespa exhibition.
