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.
