Who Are You Going to Meet?
EPSON, FUJIFILM, Roland and HEIDELBERG are some of the biggest companies to have their stand at Graphispag regularly. They come to meet with decision makers and professionals involved in every part of the processing chain. Over half of trade visitors have purchasing power, whether that’s full or partial, and their main reason for attending is to source new suppliers, research what’s on offer right now and educate themselves on emerging trends.
The biggest group of visitors covers professionals representing industrial sectors, manufacturers and distributors. They’re closely followed by experts working in graphic services. The remainder of visitors include design and communications specialists, brands and end users. Think retailers, hospitality, fashion and textiles, publishing houses, advertising and communication agencies, design agencies and POS manufacturers.
Graphispag primarily services the Spanish market with over 90% of visitors being Spanish, but in recent years the trade fair has been steadily expanding its international reach. Top countries with the most visitors include Portugal, Italy, France, Algeria, Germany and Egypt. As a whole, the level of satisfaction is high with around 70% reporting they’ve met their goals and are satisfied.
Additional Value of Attending
Graphispag promotes knowledge exchange through exceptional supporting events. The event aims to provide inspiration and business opportunities for printers, with a strong focus on sustainability, technology and customisation. The backbone of the information programme is the DIALOGUES – MOMENTUM series of talks and panel discussions. 54 speakers take to the stage to dive deep into the most exciting challenges and developments in the industry today.
Talks discuss everything from sustainability in graphic products and processes to functional printing, packaging printing, and textile printing. But that’s only one side of the coin. Part of the programme is devoted to the topics of management, motivation, resilience, and business leadership to name a few.
The PRINTS showroom enjoys a lot of attention each edition for its stellar showcase of various graphic products and applications printed on different materials and surfaces. Visitors are not just able to see each product, but freely interact where possible.
The final mention here goes to the Anuaria Awards, which recognise outstanding achievement in Spanish graphic design. In 2021, 25 Gold Anuaria awards were presented across different categories, including signage, publishing, typography, packaging, and illustration. These special events make Graphispag an unmissable opportunity for anyone involved in the graphic and visual communication industry in Spain.
