Screen Printing Now - Conference Details Announced


FESPA UK has announced it will stage "Screen Printing Now", a conference including presentations, networking and demonstrations over three days in the Autumn, hosted by FESPA UK Association and Sakurai Graphic Systems Limited at their show room in Hounslow.
The event is designed to spotlight and share the very latest profit-enhancing developments in the world of screen print. It will be held from 30th September to 2nd October, and focus on industrial, graphic and textile screen printing, with industry leaders delivering key note presentations within a packed programme each day.

Screen Printing Now is destined to help fuel the resurgence of interest in screen printing, and will be the only dedicated screen printing conference to be held in the UK this year.

In addition to hearing from the industry's opinion-formers on their specialist subjects, delegates will also have the opportunity to see live printing demonstrations, meet industry suppliers and engage in valuable networking sessions.

Speakers will be from, NJ Screen Prints Limited, DS Smith Multigraphics, Marabu UK Limited, Welsh Centre for Printing and Coating, Sakurai Japan, Natgraph Limited, Macdermid Autotype, G Bopp and Co Limited, Colenso Screen Services Limited, CST GmbH and others.

Chairman of FESPA UK Association, Martyn Hicks, commented: "We are constantly being told by our members and others in the industry that screen printing is far from a dying process, and offers unique solutions. It is actually becoming increasingly important in certain sectors. So, Screen Printing Now is not only a celebration of screen printing but also an opportunity for a wide range of delegates to discover how the process is accelerating its development to serve future technologies.

With each day dedicated to one of the three main sectors - industrial, graphic, and textile - we are confident the event will provide invaluable insights and information for anyone involved in screen printing."

When we were putting this conference together it was clear that there is far greater synergy between the sectors than was first apparent. Textile and Industrial are growing rapidly with Graphics finding its level. Textile is the most exciting area with work coming back from Asia and our innovative designers and printers generating new opportunities for retail. Environmentally responsible inks and computer to screen linked to multi-station fully automatic machines are invigorating the UK industry. At Screen Printing Now we want to examine the opportunities for continued success."
