Explore latest garment printing technology at FESPA Fabric
FESPA Fabric 2012 As part of a comprehensive FESPA Digital visitor experience, FESPA Fabric 2012 (21-24 February 2012), offers garment decorators and printers the opportunity to explore the latest trends and developments in apparel print.
This 'show within a show' specifically attracted over 2,500 visitors in Hamburg at FESPA Digital 2011, and with interest in the potential of digital direct-to-garment technologies growing so dynamically, FESPA Fabric is an important feature of the Digital show.
In 2012, with Kornit Digital confirmed as Fabric Corporate sponsor, visitors looking to update themselves on the latest production technologies and consumable advancements for garment printing, embroidery and decoration will now be able to take their inspiration as part of the main FESPA Digital show. Covering approximately 1000m2, FESPA Fabric 2012 will occupy nearly 10% of the total FESPA Digital event.
Now running across all four days of the show, FESPA Fabric will offer a mix of exhibitors and educational content aimed at invigorating garment printers and decorators with new business ideas and revenue opportunities.
The Fabric Theatre within FESPA Fabric, leading industry specialists including direct-to-garment expert Scott Fresener will share their wealth of knowledge on print and pre-press techniques, technological developments and trends for direct-to-garment digital printing, screen printing and a range of apparel sectors, bringing to life the FESPA Fabric campaign strapline 'Explore the Wider Garment Opportunities'.
Charlie Taublieb, aka Dr. Print, will also be presenting his special mix of educational and fun demonstrations in Charlie's Corner, now a popular destination for FESPA visitors. His exciting tips on screen printing and garment decoration techniques will enable any garment printing business to go the extra distance.
FESPA Managing Director Neil Felton comments: "Having listened to feedback from exhibitors and visitors to FESPA Fabric in Spring 2011, we have incorporated FESPA Fabric into the main Digital event for 2012, bringing these fascinating garment applications into the centre of the show.
"With such a concentration of garment producers in southern Europe, we expect FESPA Fabric in Barcelona to be a popular event for this specialist community. And for wide format printers looking for opportunities to diversify, this zone may provide some valuable insights into the world of printed fashion garments and promotional wear."
He continues: "Our aim is to create a learning environment to inspire garment decorators and printers, as well as apparel brands, to take hold of new ideas to help grow their bottom line. We have a packed programme of live demonstrations, hands-on workshops, side shows, seminars and of course the show floor exhibits which will all go a long way to help FESPA Fabric visitors map out their own route to success".
