Printing SA was unanimously voted into full membership of FESPA at the General Assembly meeting of FESPA, held on 4 September 2015 in Madrid, Spain. Steve Thobela, CEO of Printing SA, attended the meeting to highlight the success Printing SA has had since it was accepted as an associate member of FESPA earlier in 2014.
This year, Printing SA hosted the Printing SA Africa conference at FESPA Africa at Gallagher Estate for the first time. As part of FESPA, Printing SA intends growing such joint initiatives not only for the benefit of its members but for the industry at large, both in South Africa and on the rest of the African continent.
FESPA’s business model of ‘profit for purpose’ provides Printing SA with the necessary resources to grow the sector, especially the digital and screen printing sub-sectors. This also means Printing SA is part of the 37 national associations which are members of FESPA. Printing SA is an international role player representing the industry and South Africa as a country at this very important platform.
