Delivered in-line with its Profit for Purpose programme, the Forum demonstrates FESPA’s commitment to reinvest in digital printing communities across the world through a range of centrally funded and supported initiatives. The Forum initiative was successfully launched and attended in Brasil during late 2015, and has been extended to the African continent to reach a wider public.

The Forum in Nigeria will be held in Lagos on 12 April, and Nairobi Kenya on 14 April 2016. The events are an opportunity for business owners to listen to expert speakers on a range of topics, and a chance to debate the future of the market and new opportunities in challenging times. The FESPA Africa Forum will include findings from the FESPA Print Census, a worldwide survey performed in partnership with InfoTrends, and presents in detail an overview of the digital printing industry and its trends for the future.
