The highest number of exhibitors came from Germany, with 167 companies. Corporate Sponsor VISITOR ATTENDANCE AT 2010 VISITOR ATTENDANCE Total visitor attendance at 2010 was 21,642 individual visitors, an increase of 6.5% on 2005 in same venue (Messe Munich, Germany). This is impressive considering contraction of industry since RE-VISITS It is clear when looking at number of re-visits compared with previous events that challenging economic conditions have placed more pressure on people s time and budget for event attendance. It was perhaps inevitable that re would be fewer browsers at Exhibitors reported a higher quality of attendee who had a focused set of objectives for ir visit. This is natural behaviour of a market that is more conscious than ever of return on investment. TOP 10 ATTENDING COUNTRIES The top 10 countries from which visitors attended 2010 are listed here. To this extent, is certainly bucking trend, both compared with average performance of entire exhibition industry and - more specifically - compared with or exhibitions in European print industry. This demonstrates strength of s exhibitions and robust nature of digital wide format printing sector in particular. According to InfoTrends, over past 12 to 18 months, contraction in volume demand for wide format print has been approximately 15% worldwide. However, performance of digital wide format contrasted with or segments of graphic arts marketplace such as commercial offset print has been comparatively robust. 2 Germany Italy Austria Switzerland UK France Nerlands Slovenia Spain Poland ,088 32, New Visitors Means New Business at 2010 An astonishing 16,000 new visitors attended 2010, equating to over 70% of total attendance. These individuals qualified as new members of events community as y have not previously attended any event and ir record was not on community database. This is a compelling statistic when one considers proposition of events as a marketing channel to new business opportunity. It also demonstrates constant change within community. Big Increase in Decision Makers General Manager Owner 2010 has increased number of General Managers and Business Owners attending its shows in comparison to 2005 and Over 73% of 2010 visitors had decision making authority or influenced major purchasing decisions, reinforcing global reputation of 2010 as must-attend event for screen, digital and textile printing. At 2010 re was a significant leap in number of General Managers who attended, with a huge increase of over 100% on Proving that has grown in importance for strategic level professionals. According to s Economy Survey 3 undertaken by InfoTrends, 70% of visitors to 2010 will make a strategic investment for ir businesses following ir visit % 29% 26% Production Sales 11.90% 15% 14% 7.60% Or Blank 37.17% 16% 16% Decision makers The global economic downturn has challenged both exhibition and print industries. There has been a notable decline in space taken at exhibitions across a wide range of industries. Findings from European exhibition industry research, most recently conducted by EMECA (an association representing 18 leading European venues) reveal an average 7% decline in exhibitor numbers and an 11% decline in net square metres of floor space. With this in mind, it is a considerable achievement that number of exhibitors at 2010 matched 2007, when wide format sector was at its peak. 20,364 This attendance figure did, however, represent a drop in numbers when compared with The decline in visitor numbers between 2007 and 2010 is clearly a result of challenging economic conditions. In 2007 market was arguably at its peak, with digital innovation in its steepest incline. A full list of exhibitors is on page occupied five halls at Messe Munich and achieved a final net square meterage that equalled 2007 in Berlin. Approximately 30000² (net) of floor space was occupied by exhibitors. This is significant when considering timing and success of 2007 show, and market changes including substantial consolidation in supplier community - that have taken place over last five years. 21,642 17% 15% 12.44% 12% 13% 3.60% % 3

DIGITAL DOMINATES LARGEST EVER DIGITAL! 2010 offered three entire halls of digital inkjet hardware, software, consumables and substrates. In its own right, this area represented largest ever Digital show. Visitors who attended 2010 indicated a record level of interest in digital technologies, with an increase from 52% in 2007 to 68% in This equates to a digitally-oriented visitor audience at this year s event of almost printers, more than 50% greater than entire visitor audience at Digital 2009 in Amsterdam. THE FIVE YEAR MIGRATION TO DIGITAL When compared to 2005, in same city and venue, we can see clearly how marketplace has changed. In 2005, digital inkjet innovation curve was in a steep ascent and digital inkjet was starting to have a noticeable impact on dominance of screen printing at that time. But back at 2005, only one hall of Messe Munich was dedicated to digital wide format, while two halls were occupied by screen printing for graphic production. TOP 5 VISITING COUNTRIES INTERESTED IN DIGITAL 13% 7% 6% Screen Printing Digital Imaging Pre-press 12% Finishing Print Substrates 8% 12% 12% Print Services 7% 9% 9% Or 11% 9% 9% Blank 3% 6% 6% 64% 23% 22% 22% 22% 22% Germany Italy Austria United Kingdom Switzerland 29% It is in screen printing for graphics and industrial applications where we see most dramatic change. With one hall of screen printing at 2010, decline compared with 2005 is considerable. This is seen as being down to dramatic shift in demand for digital, due to its competitive advantage for short run point-of-sale graphic production, coupled with a decline in Europe s manufacturing base and with it slower demand for industrial screen printing in Europe. 4 5

5 PRE-PRESS & SOFTWARE GROWS IN STATUS 2010 also saw increased interest in prepress and software for print. Although figures do not bear out a huge increase, reports from show floor at 2010 suggested that exhibitors from software community had reported stronger than expected interest in ir products. The community has been regarded previously as being comparatively slow to adopt software for print management and workflow, but is now showing heightened levels of interest in this element of printing process. The use of workflow software can increase production efficiency. Coming out of recession, is is logical for interest in lean manufacturing to remain strong, and indeed to continue to grow in importance. Variable data printing has also seen an increase in interest in recent years, as consumer-driven trend towards personalisation or versioning gains momentum. CONVERGENCE IN PRINT The graphic arts community - of which screen printing, digital printing and garment decoration are a significant part - is constantly evolving. When analogue printing process dominated wide format printing, print communities were aligned closely to ir chosen printing processes. Now, with technological change, se traditional lines are blurring. Distinction of a print business by process is no longer possible or particularly accurate. Wide format printers are embracing new technologies and exploring smaller formats. Conversely, traditional offset litho marketplace, having accepted digital output for small formats, is beginning to invest in wide format solutions. 9.2% of visitors to 2010 describe mselves as Offset, Litho or Commercial Printers, which reinforces this development. This convergence trend is being driven by demand and commercial opportunity. The printer s customer is now process agnostic and is concerned with solutions, not technologies. Meanwhile, printers from all backgrounds need to create new revenue streams and improve profitability and customer loyalty by offering a wider range of services to new and existing customers. At 2010, it was observed that small format digital exhibitors were successfully taking part, including companies such as Atlantic Zeiser and Xennia, as well as EFI showing ir jetrian format technology. Looking ahead to Digital 2011, we expect this trend to continue, with existing and new exhibitors bringing smaller format technology to connect with a community of wide format print specialists interested in diversifying into new formats and applications. a part in growth and development Over last 3 years, Xaar has witnessed and played very clear that diversity of digital print of Fespa s global events.

Mark Alexander, Director of Marketing, Xaar SCREEN PRINTING HAS A POSITIVE FUTURE 2010 was not just a digital show. 42% of visitors attending 2010 were in search of new innovations in screen printing. This clearly defines as show to attend for screen printing innovation. The screen halls were positive and busy, indicating that screen printing s contraction has likely bottomed out, leaving a process whose role is secure for specific applications. Screen printing still dominates industrial and speciality processes and, despite relentless push from digital technology vendors and introduction of metallic inks for digital, it feels safe to say that screen printing does have a positive future.

6 ECONOMY SURVEY 3 MARKETING CAMPAIGN POST SHOW STAKEHOLDER SURVEY A stakeholder survey conducted by immediately after 2010 underlined event s significance in stimulating and motivating visitors to make significant business decisions. 70% of respondents who visited 2010 intended to make strategic business investments following ir visit, and 80% said y had learned something relating to innovation that y planned to use in ir business. The electronic survey, conducted by research partner InfoTrends, obtained feedback from 270 printers, vendors and resellers worldwide, with split between customers and suppliers being roughly 50/50. 93% of respondents attended s objective was to obtain an update on major industry developments, ascertain post-event views on economic situation and outlook for wide format community, and understand impact of an industry event such as. According to survey, output dominates visitors spending plans, with 45% likely to invest in new or additional printing equipment, with an emphasis on eco-friendly technology (40%). Finishing is an investment priority for 25% of respondents, followed closely by variable data capabilities (23%) and workflow software (18%). Interest in printing onto textile substrates is high, with 42% of respondents now planning purchases in this area. 67% of visitors to 2010 used innovative processes or products in ir business to help get through economic downturn Economy Survey 3 The me for 2010 was innovation. conducted a series of Economy Surveys with InfoTrends throughout recession. These showed that print service providers had responded to reduction in demand for wide format print by focusing on maximising process efficiencies. This is a sensible short-term reaction to market conditions, but not a sustainable, profitable long-term strategy. The Catch New Wave of Innovation strapline and story was designed to encourage exhibitors to launch new products at, while also provoking visitors into adopting innovation and producing innovative print for ir customers. The Global Summit BluePrint reinforces notion that only profitable route out of challenging economic conditions is through innovation, fuelling profitable growth. The Catch New Wave of Innovation campaign used analogy of a storm subsiding and a different trading environment emerging. We championed innovation approach, not purely as a driver for visitor attendance, but as an essential philosophy for our community of printers to grow in future. Businesses cannot grow just by minimising waste and reducing cost. At show and throughout campaign we demonstrated how a total approach to innovation will generate economic growth. INNOVATE!

10 REPORT SUMMARY Whatever statistics, true barometer of success of any event is feedback from exhibitors and visitors, ir views and feedback from event, tone and optimism and belief that it has delivered a high quality experience. By those measures, 2010 has been outstanding. The show s success clearly proves robust nature of community and positive outlook that prevails whatever external economic conditions. And feedback from our community is that 2010 was best yet! 2010 was most exciting wide format show in Europe since Berlin Mark Twain once stated: rumours of my death are greatly exaggerated ; we believe rumours of death of European economy are also exaggerated. The leads and interest generated at this event have eclipsed any held in past few years. The number of customers buying second and third units is also continuing to grow. Stand traffic was impressive as we not only had large numbers of European visitors but also significant increases in number of attendees from Americas, Asia Pacific and Middle East. We tracked a huge increase in customer demand for our VUTEk and Rastek printers, but also for our Jetrion UV inkjet label printing press, our remote proofing, web-to-print and business process management software -- as printers in this market are looking to automate processes and expand ir business into new markets in Munich delivered on its promise to be premier platform for EFI to highlight its innovation into market. EFI Paul Cripps, Managing Director EMEA, EFI Visitor traffic on Fujifilm stand was very good and of a consistently high quality throughout show. The interest in Pro- File, our process independent colour management system, and our equipment, especially Uvistar a superwide format UV roll printer POP and billboard graphics, has been fantastic.

The fair has given us a great overview of production market and we have experienced no or show with more international visitors.
