WTiN to hold digital textile printing conference in India

WTiN, the publisher of Digital Textile magazine, is to hold a conference on the digital printing of home textiles at Heimtextil India, in New Delhi, next summer.

The event will complement the previously announced European Digital Textile Conference to be held at Heimtextil in Frankfurt, on January 9 & 10, 2014.

Like its European counterpart, the South Asian Digital Textile Conference will focus on the newly emerging trend for industrial-scale digital printing of home textiles – exploring the creative and commercial opportunities offered by this development in the Indian market.

There will also be an examination of the readiness of digital printing technology in the specific context of the massive Indian home-textile industry. In addition to representatives of leading machinery, ink and software companies, the speakers will include senior executives from Indian printers that have already invested in digital production.

Indian retail sales of home textiles are growing at around 8% a year and are expected to reach $6 billion (Rs 27,350 crore) by 2016. Globally, home textiles make up around 40% of the estimated 12 billion square metres of printed fabrics, and Indian printers represent a major share of this market.

The economics of Indian production mean that its textile-printing community is still at an early stage in the transition to inkjet technology but pioneers of the technique include Heimtextil India’s Platinum Sponsor, Dicitex D’Décor.

The programme of the South Asian Digital Textile Conference will encompass both home and contract textiles, including bedding, drapes, upholstery, bathroom products, flooring and the related area of wallpaper. One key theme will be the opportunity provided by digital printing to deliver co-ordinated design concepts across a variety of surfaces in commercial interiors.

The one-day conference will take place on June 20, 2014 – the second day of Heimtextil India – at a dedicated conference venue within the Pragati Maidan exhibition centre in New Delhi.

Heimtextil India, organised by MesseFrankfurt Trade Fairs India Pvt Ltd, will run from June 19-21, 2014, and is expected to attract 200 exhibitors and 4,000 visitors.
