Textile Printing Now Conference

In co-operation with the British Interiors & Textiles Association (BITA) FESPA UK Association’s Textile Printing Now will be staged at the Textile Centre of Excellence in Huddersfield on 13th March 2018. The event is set to attract around 100 delegates, sponsors and exhibitors to a packed programme of inspirational presentations from leaders in their fields, offering valuable networking opportunities.

The conference will provide a spectacular celebration of textile printing, and points the way towards a bright future.

The conference examines the full range of textile printing, coating and surface modification techniques - both analogue and digital. And, introduces concepts that delegates may not have previously considered to inspire them into new business-enhancing initiatives.

The day consists of presentations by industry-leading experts, table-top displays and networking opportunities, and is the only event targeted at the development of textile printing in the UK during 2018.

Supported by FESPA, the conference represents part of its Profit-for-Purpose programme – in which profits are re-invested into supporting the print community.

An essential event for anyone involved in textile printing
