Fespa to hold textile conference

Fespa is planning to host the next in its series of Digital Textile Conferences in Milan, Italy, on 30 September this year. Fespa has worked with Sistema Moda Italia, the Italian Fashion and Textile Federation, and Associazione Italiana Disegnatori Tessili, the Italian Textile Designers Association, both of which will field speakers. The event is also sponsored by MS Italy.  

Fespa has been running these conferences for eight years now to help printers realise the growth opportunities in digital printing on textile substrates for a range of applications. This year’s event is planned to provide print service providers with insights into the diverse market segments of digital textile printing, feedback from printers who have successfully entered the sector and technical guidance on how to address the opportunity, including updates on the latest technology developments in machinery, software, inks and textiles. The conferences will be in both Italian and English.

Neil Felton, CEO of Fespa, commented: “Today, digital accounts for only a small proportion of all textile printing, but this is forecast to grow substantially in the years ahead, with estimates suggesting that digital could account for 5% of textile printing by 2020, up from 2% today. Clearly that’s a significant diversification opportunity for printers already invested in digital output technology and supporting workflows.”

Registration for the Digital Textile Conference is open to any printer. Full details of the conference programme and delegate registration can be found at www.fespadtc.com.

In the interests of full disclosure, I should point out that I also write stories for the Fespa website.

You can license the articles from Printing and Manufacturing Journal to reproduce in other publications. I generally charge around £150 per article but I’m open to discussing this for each title, particularly for publishers that want to use multiple stories. I can provide high res versions of images for print publications.

I’m used to working with overseas publishers and am registered for VAT with the UK’s HMRC tax authority but obviously won’t charge VAT to companies outside the UK. You can find further details and a licensing form from this page, or just contact me directly here.
