Cambea Brasil 2019 took place alongside FESPA Brasil 2019, the most important event for the wide format digital printing industry in Brasil. The exhibition showcased printed graphics, signage, promotional print, industrial print and garment decoration.

Francisco comments: “Cambea is always a much awaited and publicized event. Every wrapper knows and dreams about participating. The cool thing is that no matter how many times you participate - it will always be a different and enriching experience.”
Francisco originally started his career working with graphic banners and worked in production. He watched wrappers working, was intrigued and learned to wrap. He says: “At first I only worked on straight surfaces and I have never taken a course. In 2015, I competed in my first Cambea in my city, Fortaleza (CE) and I won. I qualified to compete in São Paulo and travelled alone. I invited another wrapper I met there at the time, to compete with me and still, I finished second! Afterwards I met my partner, Rafael who now competes with me. Together we have won 3 times: one in Cambea - Northeast Stage (2017), then Cambea Brasil (2018) and now Cambea Brasil (2019). He is also an excellent wrapper.”
This year the competition was fierce Francisco says: “the team that came second place was the same as last year. However, they were better trained, and we won by only 5 points, so it was very close. It’s evident that the competitors continue to improve every year and I have so much respect for my competitors. Before the competition my partner and I prayed, and another team joined us in our prayer, it was an exciting moment” says Francisco.
It is the second time that WS Adesivacaos Brasil has won first place at Cambea Brasil. Franciso comments: “Wow, it’s crazy! My partner, Rafael who competes with me and myself are happy that we won again and that we are two-time champions!”
Francisco Wellington will go on to compete at the World Wrap Masters Final 2019 in Munich, Germany which is run alongside the Global Print Expo 2019, Europe’s largest specialty print exhibition for screen and digital wide format print, textile printing and signage solutions. Francisco says: “It is a dream to be participating in the finals in Munich. When I was in Berlin last year I tried to make the most of every second because I could never imagine that one day I would return to Germany to compete again! It was my first international trip and now that I will be returning to Munich to compete again…the feeling is very surreal!”
