FESPA World Wrap Masters Eurasia

FESPA's worldwide vehicle wrap event, the World Wrap Masters returns to Eurasia. It will offer regional wrap installers the opportunity to showcase their expertise and creativity to the global wrap community, while competing to be crowned the winner.

Sixteen contestants will battle it out in the competition, which will take place daily during the four-day show, where they will wrap a variety of objects. On the first two show days visitors can take part in onsite training opportunities from international and regional wrap professionals, where they will share top tips and expert advice.

Confirmed judges and trainers for World Wrap Masters Eurasia are Carlos Ruiz from Spain and Kiss Lajos, two-time world champion from Hungary. The winner will win a trip to FESPA Global Print Expo 2019 in Munich, where they will compete against other regional winners for the title of World Wrap Master. Last year's Eurasia champion, Ivan Tenchev from Bulgaria, went on to win the World Title at the final in Berlin.

Signage demo workshop

Organised by FESPA's national Association, ARED, the signage demos will showcase the latest in both traditional and modern sign-making including sign writing techniques, neon and LED signage production. The programme for the Signage Demo Workshop will be available nearer the show and will take place every day of FESPA Eurasia.

“The features programme is a great addition to FESPA Eurasia and offers regional print service providers and sign-makers a chance to experience and be involved in growth areas. The World Wrap Masters and signage demo workshop always prove to be popular at FESPA Eurasia, so we are excited to see these return in 2018,” commented Michael Ryan, Group Exhibition Manager, FESPA.

“After the huge success of Print Make Wear at FESPA Global Print Expo 2018 and FESPA Mexico, we are looking forward to introducing it at FESPA Eurasia this year. The textile market in Turkey is huge, so we are hopeful that the introduction of this new feature will be as successful as it has been in Berlin and Mexico.”
