FESPA to recognise print’s ‘heroes’ in Hall of Fame 2013

FESPA is inviting printers, manufacturers, suppliers, print buyers and end users to nominate print solution providers (PSPs) into the FESPA Hall of Fame 2013 – the ‘who’s 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.

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 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.

“The initial Hall of Fame at FESPA Digital 2012 was extremely well received and we’re thrilled to continue to celebrate the amazing and inspiring work of printers around the world,” comments FESPA managing director Neil Felton. “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 31 May 2013. The five winners and top five nominees per country will be announced at FESPA 2013 on 26 June 2013 at an Awards Gala Dinner.
