HPS is Gold Sponsor of the Digital Textile Conference

17 April 2011


HPS is Gold Sponsor of the Fespa Digital Textile Conference. Held alongside FESPA Digital and FESPA Fabric from 24 to 27 May 2011 at Messe Hamburg, this one day conference will provide an international line-up of digital textile printing experts, ready to share a wealth of knowledge, experience and insight into the latest innovative products, trends, case studies and trade secrets.

"We're delighted to have the support of Hollanders for the FESPA Digital Textile Conference" says John Scrimshaw of World Textile Information Network. "As a company that is dedicated to textile applications, Hollanders has always been among the leaders in driving the industry forward and its involvement in Hamburg will add strength and prestige to this key event."

The conference features a special focus on “Business Applications of Digital Textile Printing”, followed by a panel discussion on how to identify and leverage opportunities. Other presentations will look at supporting sustainability and mass customisation in a totally digital supply chain, and the opportunities and challenges of creating “smart fabrics” by printing functional materials using inkjet technology. Technical topics covered include: developments in direct-to-garment printing; merging digital textile printing with traditional rotary printing; the evolution of industrial digital high-speed printing equipment, and printing on polyester fabric with water-based disperse dyes.

"FESPA warmly welcomes Hollanders as Gold Sponsor of the FESPA Digital Textile Conference to deliver knowledge and insight to grow the breadth and depth of both technical and application-focussed knowledge in the broad and dynamic area of digital textile printing." Comments Duncan MacOwan, Head of Events and New Media, FESPA.

The alternative to visiting the conference

As an alternative to the Digital Textile Conference, HPS invites people to set-up a meeting during the Fespa show, or to come visit the HPS Digital Textile Print Competence Center in Eindhoven.

HPS, together with media manufacturers, technology partners and industry organisations, has come up with an initiative that offers hands-on demonstrations, showcases application examples and allows to experience the benefits and requirements of digital textile printing for the visual communications industry.

Instead of focusing on sales of equipment only, this initiative concentrates on putting together the pieces of the puzzle, to raise awareness of all textile application opportunities and to research, educate and demonstrate in the Digital Textile Print Competence Center.

Inquiries for an appointment, either during Fespa or for the HPS Competence Center, can be sent to HPS via ‘sales@hollanders-ps'
