Registrations open for virtual digital textile print show
Current and aspiring digital DTG and dye sub textile print operations are invited to register for the US Digital Textile Printing 2020 expo, which is running online next month, on 9 and 10 December.
As the new generation of digital textile print systems pour into the market – offering ease of production in an on-demand market – an increasing number of print businesses are assessing the opportunities in textile, particularly direct-to-garment and dye sublimation printing.
Ray Weiss, director, Digital Print Programs, at major US print association Printing United Alliance, and Kerry King, senior vice president R&D, at online personalisation giant Spoonflower, will host the event, which covers key trends and technologies in digitally printed textiles.
Morning and afternoon sessions (US time) will highlight the latest on automation, colour management, sustainability, state of the industry, supply chain, and more. Click here for registration, which costs US$139 for the two days.
“While we cannot meet together in person this year, we are looking forward to bringing this exemplary program conveniently to the homes and offices of all involved in digital textile printing,” said Ray Weiss, event host. “Our speaker line-up is second to none and we are really looking forward to offering attendees actionable and usable programming and content in the current business climate.
