FESPA is inviting printers, manufacturers, suppliers and print buyers and end users to nominate print solution providers (PSPs) into the FESPA Hall of Fame 2013. FESPA is encouraging the print industry to start nominating colleagues, who they feel deserve to be recognised and rewarded for their excellence.
The Hall of Fame, seen first at FESPA Digital 2012, is the whos who of leading printers across the global print community. This initiative will culminate at the FESPA 2013 event in London (25-29 June 2013), where the overall Global Printer of the Year will be announced, alongside the top five printers in each country.
The Hall of Fame aims to highlight worthy individuals from all over the world who their peers hold up as inspirational role models. Printers can be nominated for having pioneered a new approach or technology, or demonstrated innovation in other ways. They may simply stand out on print skill or service for a leading stance on sustainability, or have made some other significant contribution to the industry.
FESPA Managing Director Neil Felton said, The initial Hall of Fame at FESPA Digital 2012 was extremely well received and were thrilled to continue to celebrate the amazing and inspiring work of printers around the world. We want to encourage the print community to nominate colleagues and industry peers they admire, to help celebrate the exceptional work that they do every day.
Nominees who receive several votes will be inaugurated into the FESPA Hall of Fame offering a host of benefits as part of an exclusive group. With the chance to network with like-minded innovative entrepreneurs, nominees also receive VIP invitations to FESPA global events as well as discounted conference or summit delegate places, in addition to potentially gaining positive media coverage for their business.
Nominations will run until 21 January 2013, the global community will then be able to vote for their favourite print hero until May 31st 2013. The five winners and top five nominees per country will be announced at FESPA 2013 on June 26th 2013 at an Awards Gala Dinner.
