Welcome to the AFIP conference

In 2008 ESMA for the first time organised the Membrane Switch Symposium that evolved into Advanced Functional Printing conference in 2011. The increasing market demand led to further concept development and since 2013 each edition of Advanced Functional & Industrial Printing has been attracting 30 exhibiting companies and a total of 140 delegates.

With the support of leading screen and digital manufacturers, AFIP has become the umbrella event with the broadest approach to speciality print applications and successfully continues to educate about print in production.
