FESPA Fabric 2015, which is 44 per cent larger than FESPA Fabric 2013 in London, takes place within FESPA 2015 Global Expo from May 18-22, 2015, in Cologne, Germany.

As per a FESPA press release, this year’s show will showcase the largest constellation of garment decoration opportunities of any FESPA event to date.

The ‘Pink Planet’ represents FESPA Fabric, where technologies, consumables, applications, innovations and trends relevant to garment decoration, using both analogue and digital processes will be on show.

“Growth for this year’s event is mostly down to the increased presence of digital textile suppliers and also strength in numbers from our screen community,” organisers of FESPA say.

FESPA Fabric 2015 featured suppliers include; Brother, Chemica, Kiian Digital, J-Teck, Hebbecker, M&R, MHM, Melco, Siser, S Roque Stahls and FESPA Fabric Corporate Partner, Kornit Digital.

Visitors will also benefit from practical and theoretical sessions on garment printing hosted by industry experts in the FESPA Education Hub, located in Hall 8, stand B90.

The seminars cover a variety of different applications and techniques printers can use to produce high quality garments.

Conference sessions will include topics such as ‘Direct to Garment Printing – Should We or Shouldn’t We?’ with Gavin Drake, director of customised clothing company, Print This Print That.

Colour correction guru, Marco Olivotto will discuss the recolouration of textile patterns and for PSPs looking to adopt an ecommerce print-on-demand system, there is a seminar with Christopher Bernat from Vapor Apparel.

Digital textile printer Spoonflower, will present its application programming interface which enables individuals to design and print their own textiles, during their seminar Using the Spoonflower API.

In her Textile Tech Time session, Sophie Matthews-Paul will look at why businesses are still reluctant to move into digital textile printing and what manufacturers can do to create a greater understanding of the industry.

Oliver Luedtke, European marketing manager, Kornit Digital, will discuss how printers can diversify into direct-to-garment printing, in How to Become a Garment Printer 101.

FESPA favourite Charlie Taublieb will return to FESPA Fabric 2015 to host daily practical workshops offering advice on various screen printing techniques.

Roz McGuinness, FESPA divisional director says, “This year’s FESPA Fabric is set to take garment printers on an inspiring journey to discover out-of-this-world textile applications and technologies.”

“The show provides an environment for visitors to learn how adding garment and promotional products to their portfolio will benefit wide format businesses,” he adds. (AR)
