FESPA’s next Digital Textile Conference to be held in Milan
today Jul 7, 2016
FESPA has decided to hold its next Digital Textile Conference in Milan, Italy on September 30, 2016 and is being held in close cooperation with various Italian textile and fashion trade bodies.
According to the organisers, FESPA Digital Textile Conferences offer a focused environment in which to learn and network, both for printers already active in digital textile printing and those seeking to enter.
The September 2016 conference program will provide print service providers with insights into the diverse market segments of digital textile printing and offer feedback from successful printers.
It will also provide technical guidance on how to address the opportunity, including updates on the latest technology developments in machinery, software, inks and textiles.
The choice of Milan as the location of the next FESPA Digital Textile Conference reflects the significance of Italy and the Como region in particular, as a centre of European textile manufacturing and decorating excellence.
Quoting Fibre2Fashion, the organisers said the region accounts for 55 per cent of the European digital textile market, producing more than 180 million square metres of digitally printed textiles in 2015.
The event program which will be delivered both in English and Italian will be moderated by journalist Paola Bonfanti and is co-located with FESPA Italia Day, the event for members of FESPA's Italian association.
Confirmed speakers and panellists so far include Enrico Barboglio of FESPA Italia; Duncan MacOwan from FESPA; Ron Gilboa of Infotrends; Fulvio Alvisi from AIDT; Andrea Ferrero of Miroglio Textiles; Lorenzo Zottar from The Color Soup; Gianluca Brenna of Stamperia di Lipomo; Dario Garnero from Stamperia Serica Italiana and Andrea Barbiani of MS Italy.
