Agfa to host virtual Fespa event
Agfa is to host a virtual event for aspiring as well as experienced inkjet printing companies during original Fespa time frame during 6-8 October.
Agfa says the three-day virtual event, titled Studio 5D10, will feature broadcast sessions focused on inkjet printing. Agfa created the event to support printing companies worldwide through their current business challenges and help them thrive in the future.
The event will coincide with the rescheduled Fespa time frame. Originally slated for March in Madrid, then for October, Fespa has now been pushed back again, this time to March, and in Amsterdam.
Studio 5D10 takes its name from what would have been Agfa’s booth number at the October Fespa. The series of targeted broadcasts focuses on market and technology trends in inkjet printing, as well as on the way printing companies can benefit from Agfa’s latest printing innovations for sign and display and industrial print applications – including high-performance large-format printers, dedicated workflow automation software, and Greenguard Gold certified inkjet inks.
The event will play host to two broadcasts per day across the three days, consisting of a mix of expert talks, user cases, background info, and Q&A sessions. Each broadcast will handle a specific topic, ranging from dealing with printing corrugated from flat to finish, over growing and diversifying offset printers’ businesses with large-format inkjet printing, to made-to-measure specialty inkjet solutions – both for sign and display and for industrial applications.
Focus points will be the power of creative print applications, the importance of perfectly matched print system building blocks, as well as different forms of smart automation options that save printing companies time and money.
“Tradeshows like Fespa, and Printing United in the US, may have been postponed due to the Covid-19 outbreak, but our commitment to the printing industry stands strong,” Tom Vermeulen, head of Agfa’s Inkjet Sign & Display business unit, said.
“We want to inspire and engage printing companies. In Studio 5D10, our experts will give them an update on our offering and discuss how it can move their businesses forward in a cost-effective way.”
