Messe Essen becomes the home of Screen Print Innovations

Screen printing technologies are playing an increasingly important role in all industrial, functional and textile sectors. Messe Essen is taking this development into account from June 3 to 5, 2025. With the Screen Print Innovations event - SPI for short - Messe Essen is presenting a new event on the trade fair floor in cooperation with the organizer ESMA (European Specialists Printing Manufactures Association). Around 100 exhibitors are expected to participate in the industry event. This gives companies in the sector the opportunity to break new ground, develop innovative ideas and prepare their own business for the challenges of the future.

"Screen printing remains the technology of choice for numerous advanced and industrial applications, including automotive, printed electronics, healthcare, luxury packaging and textiles. Despite its maturity, the technology is constantly evolving and improving in terms of precision, automation and quality, while remaining resource efficient and adaptable. We are therefore delighted to have found the ideal venue in Essen, in the heart of Europe,” explains Peter Buttiens, CEO of ESMA.

In addition to a comprehensive exhibition of innovations and ideas relating to the screen printing industry, Screen Print Innovations 2025 primarily offers the opportunity to make important business contacts and exchange ideas and experiences. Suppliers and users will meet developers of printing systems as well as manufacturers of inks and other consumables, integrators, distributors, print manufacturers and product owners. 

"The event is pursuing ambitious goals with which we at Messe Essen fully identify. We are convinced that Essen is the ideal location for the SPI and that it will develop excellently with us,” explains Oliver P. Kuhrt, CEO of Messe Essen.
