A first class line-up of speakers and content has been confirmed for the Jet Set conference, set to land at FESPA 2013 London for the first time, 25-29 June 2013.

The seminars will take place every day of the five day show offering a variety of insightful presentations for print service providers (PSPs) to explore the wider opportunities of print and grow their businesses. The sessions are free of charge and will present key topics for today’s (PSP) to explore in order to grow their business including: sustainability, digital textile printing, digital printing, business building skills and industrial screen printing.

The Jet Set conference held in partnership with our Gold Sponsor AEG Professional Printers, Silver Sponsor Hollanders and media partners ESMA and PrintFuture will be located on FESPA’s show floor on stand B75N in the north hall of the ExCeL.

The ‘FESPA Flight Briefing’ will kick-off proceedings on day one, where FESPA’s Head of Membership, Chris Smith will discuss FESPA’s Profit for Purpose programme and how FESPA reinvests back into its global printing community. Visitors will hear from the FESPA Slovakia, Turkey and UK associations during the ‘Association Showcase’ where they will speak about their work which is enabled by FESPA project funding.

The Sustainability conference takes place from 14h00 on day one, discussing topics such as compliance, carbon footprint calculators and how businesses can become more environmentally efficient. Key confirmed seminars include Independent Technical Advisor, Rachel Butler who will look at new regulations and accessible means of implementation, including business case study examples. Another session visitors won’t want to miss is ‘how to make sustainability work for your business’ where Paul Noble, Operations Director at Banner Box will speak from experience about how his organisation successfully integrated sustainable practices whilst continuing to grow, develop and invest in the business.

Digital textile printing is the focus of day two’s Jet Set conference line-up. Seminars will look at the opportunities in digital textile printing, sublimation vs. direct-to-garment, printing for fashion, and will also take a glimpse into the textile printing industry of tomorrow. This is a key session to attend for PSP’s hoping to add digital textile printing to their service offering.

Tim Greene, Wide Format Director at Infotrends kicks off the third day of the conference discussing digital print. He leads the proceedings discussing FESPA’s World Wide Survey findings and key trends in digital printing. After lunch Andrew Hodson, Sales & Marketing Director at Icon-world will explain how they manage supply, quality control and logistics to deliver some of the world’s biggest events, drawing on experience from the London 2012 Olympics last summer.

From 15h30 on day three, the FESPA Awards will take over the conference room where the winners of the screen, digital textile and industrial categories will be announced. Funded by FESPA’s Profit for Purpose reinvestment programme, the awards celebrate innovative and exceptional work created by printers from around the world. The competition is only open to FESPA association members, however, the Industrial category welcomes entries from non FESPA members. Printers can enter the awards until the 20 May 2013.
