FESPA Textile partner lineup revealed
FESPA Textile has announced two strategic partnerships that will bring the benefit of the industry leader's combined knowledge to the FESPA visitor.
With the most comprehensive showcase of digital textile print technologies and applications in Europe this year set to open in just one month, FESPA is pleased to announce its two important Textile partners: Kornit Digital as FESPA Textile Corporate Partner, and d.gen as Digital Textile Partner.
Oliver Luedtke, Director, Marketing EMEA at Kornit Digital, explains: “FESPA Textile is the largest and most significant event for digital textile printing today, and we’re delighted to be Corporate Textile Partner once again. One area where FESPA excels is in educating other print sectors - be that digital or analogue – on the opportunities digital textile printing presents.”
He continues: "In today’s market, vendors are still making progress in expanding the range of potential applications for digital textile, and at FESPA Textile we’re expecting to see solutions providing end users with expanded colour gamuts and more flexibility in terms of garments, as well as the very important integration into the workflow, enabling more automation and the possibilities of e-commerce applications."
"We can’t wait to be part of this year’s event in our partner status, as textile printing undergoes this change and larger volumes are fulfilled via digital printing. These are very exciting times."
Andrea Negretti, VP and Worldwide Business Manager at d.gen, adds: “We are delighted that FESPA continues to have this commitment in the textile industry and that, over the years we have worked together, the awareness of digital textile solutions has grown."
"Being FESPA Digital Textile Partner is a trusted position and is very encouraging for us as it highlights the expertise and experience we can bring to the table in answering the various questions regarding fabrics and their applications."
He continues: "The textile market is undergoing huge growth at the moment and inevitably there are some inexperienced players who are trying to influence the industry. With FESPA’s clear direction and educational conference programme, printers are in safe hands. Here at d.gen, we have complete trust in FESPA and look forward to our continuing investment in the textile ‘adventure’."
Roz McGuinness, FESPA Divisional Director comments: “With the backing and support of both Kornit and d.gen for FESPA Textile, we are confident that we have experienced and knowledgeable partners on board who will help us propagate the textile messages to visitors, encouraging them to get the most out of both the exhibition and conference programme and highlighting new opportunities for their businesses."
"Both companies have longevity in this industry and can offer printers the benefit of their experiences to help shape the future."
