Call for Papers
ITMA 2019 exhibitors are invited to submit their papers for the forum. The papers should centre on the following topics:

  • Chemical/colourant supplier’s role and response to the current environmental issues. Some current issues facing the industry and areas of growth are:
    • C8 chemistry
    • Microplastics
    • Digital printing
    • Effluent treatment
    • Production of novel dye chemistry, or dye and chemical feedstock
  • New preparation, dyeing and finishing technologies and their impact in on a more sustainable supply chain in response to NGOs’ requirements and environmental concerns

The deadline for submission is 15 October 2018. For enquiries, please email info@itma.com

Digital Textile Conference

Date: 24 June 2019 | Time: TBC | Venue: Gran Via Convention Centre

Theme: Right Speed, Right Price

As digital textile printing matures, it is clear that chasing speed for its own sake is not always the best strategy. What matters is spotting the applications where digital textile can be a commercial winner by delivering the right quality, productivity and price. While ITMA 2015 saw the super-fast single-pass machines meet head-on, ITMA 2019 is likely to have a focus on ink innovation, and perhaps for the development of inkjet in other areas of textile finishing. The WTiN Digital Textile Conference at ITMA will also explore the trend for integration of on-demand print with downstream manufacturing processes.

For enquiries, please email Chinky Tyagi at events@wtin.com.
