Jan '16
At FESPA 2016, which runs from March 8-11, organisers are hosting a one day Digital Textile Conference, with the objective of providing a comprehensive learning platform.

According to a FESPA press release, textile printing is proving to be one of the fastest growing sectors in the digital wide format print industry, and with technology a key driver for the changes, demand for education is high.

The conference runs from 10.45 to 18.00 on March 8 and will cover topics such as 'Insights into the growth and creative development of digital textile markets' by Ron Gilboa of Infotrends.

Another topic is 'Growing your business with fabric printing' by Daniel Arzt of Sun Ski Sport and 'Smart textiles' by David Schmelzeisen, academic, Institut für Textiltechnik der RWTH Aachen.

'Digital print in fast fashion' will be presented by Mike Horsten, general manager marketing EMEA, Mimaki Europe B.V.

There will also be a keynote Q&A on 'The evolution of digital textile print for fashion' with Bruno Basso & Christopher Brooke from Basso & Brooke, who are pioneering the digital print process in fashion.

“The day will also include panel discussions and key networking opportunities during the inclusive lunch and drinks reception,” FESPA said.

Other free textile sessions throughout the four days include topics like; 3D printed clothing, Direct to garment printing: should we or shouldn't we? and Screen printing and direct to garment.

“With textile highlighted as a key growth area in our recent FESPA Print Census, we are committed to ensuring that we provide as much useful information as possible,” said, Roz McGuinness, FESPA divisional director.

“Our educational sessions have this same objective in mind and we are confident that delegates and visitors will leave the sessions feeling like they have learnt useful information to take their business forward,” he too added.

Duncan MacOwan, FESPA's head of events and new media said, “Our one-day Digital Textile Conference provides printers with information and first-hand experience from some of the leading industry experts.”

“We have aimed to get a complete spectrum of speakers who will discuss different aspects of the textile industry,” he informed.

“The objective is to provide useful insight for those printers who may be already producing printed textile or looking to branch out into a slightly different area,” Duncan observed. (AR)
