Fespa UK has announced the details of its first event of 2022. The Future of Print Industry Forum will be hosted at Hatfield House on 10 March and will focus on waste management, sustainability in print, employee wellbeing, business development and adapting for the future.

The event will kick off with a networking lunch before an afternoon which has deliberately been designed to be more conversational in tone that the ‘age-old format of endless presentations.’ Specifically, a panel of industry experts and successful printers will engage with the audience to answer questions, discuss strategies, and offer insights into their own business models.  

Fespa UK, which brings together the talents of wide-format, digital, textile, industrial and specialist printers across the UK, launched a waste management initiative toward the end of last year. The organisation says that an ‘overwhelming number of printers’ have already registered for the initiative and that March’s event will therefore be an opportunity to move the initiative forward and allow likeminded printers to come together and ‘help to create a real infrastructure for waste collection.’

Suzi Wilkinson, managing director of Fespa UK, commented, ‘This open discussion, is about coming together as a community, making a change together, and making a lasting commitment as an industry for the future. Fespa UK is all about community and if we work together, we are so much stronger, than when we work alone.’
