FESPA has announced a new line-up of speakers who will provide in-depth knowledge and expertise on digital textile printing at its Digital Textile Conference to be held on October 2, 2014 in Italy.

FESPA says these speakers will encourage printers interested in digital textile printing to explore new trends and techniques, as well as market growth areas for new business opportunities.

The conference programme will focus on four areas of discussion; an overview of digital textile printing, interior and soft signage, apparel printing and fashion, as well as an in-depth exploration of the technologies and techniques used to deliver these applications.

Among the speakers, providing an overview of digital textile printing, Ron Gilboa from Infotrends, will discuss insights into the growth and creative development of the digital textile market, based on data collected from leading market players in digital textile inks and equipment.

Ron will also examine the market drivers in digital textile printing, and where he believes the market is heading in the next five years.

Talking about digital printing in fashion, Mark Abramson, CEO of ThinFolio, a Kickstarter funded project, will discuss the success and challenges in creating print ready files and managing the production and shipment of large volume, uniquely digitally printed products.

Professor Dr Marc Van Parys, Head of Research Laboratory TO2C, will highlight new developments in digital textile printing including recent innovations for new UV inks and lacquers tailor made for different textile applications.

Italian Colour Correction Guru, Marco Olivotto, will discuss colour correction for digital textile printing, including traditional correction techniques, gamut problems and how printers can get the most from digitally printed designs and patterns.

Swedish based Andreas Skantze, President of Big Image Systems, will examine his most challenging and creative case studies over his 25 years’ experience in the industry to demonstrate the potential of fabric printing.

Scott Donovan, Managing Director at BleuPrint Creative will examine how fabric printing can help grow a business by looking at market analysis and exploring mass-production, to individually customised products, as well as the possibilities these can provide end users.

Egidio Fasana, Production Manager at Mascioni will be discussing a centre of excellence ‘Multi-Pass versus Single-Pass’ for digital textile printing.

FESPA said the session will also include speeches from previously announced speakers Melanie Bowles, Senior Lecturer in Textile Design at Chelsea College of Art and fashion designer Michael Schmidt, who incorporates 3D printing in his designs. (AR)
