Over generations, the textile industry has built the reputation of one of the world’s biggest polluters. Today, it recognizes and answers to the call for change. The shift in environmental and social awareness impacts textile markets, business models and production techniques. Print technology has an important role to play here and explores opportunities presented by advances in automatization and digitalization.
The new Textile Printing & Sustainability Conference
(TPS) which takes place from September 8-9, 2022 in Düsseldorf/Germany, looks at the critical factors and global trends which influence the textile market condition today and in the nearest future: e.g. customer-made fashion, responsible businesses, quality concerns, customization and personalization.
The 2-day event, organized by the European Specialist Printing Manufacturers Association (ESMA), Tielt-Winge/Belgium, assembles industry experts from 2 main printing processes, screen and inkjet, to promote best practices, discuss new application fields and explain benefits and challenges of individual technology choices. The conference program will include approx. 40 presentations, technical speeches, business cases and market overviews. There will also be a parallel tabletop exhibition.
