WTiN North America Digital Textile Conference
Conference date: 18th July 2017
Location: Javits Convention Center, AvanprintUSA, NY
The US digital textile market continued to perform dynamically during 2015, with a growth rate of 44%*, compared to a global market average of 28%, meaning that the USA increased its market share. Looking ahead, US digital textiles are expected to continue to outperform the market, at least until 2019, as major American brands make active efforts to bring production closer to home.
By popular demand, WTiN, is to organise the second North America Digital Textile Conference – now co-located with Avanprint USA, a dedicated digital textile printing technology exhibition allowing pioneers in technology to communicate directly with the fashion community. The conference will highlight the new creative and commercial opportunities that come with the digital route and explore the ways in which new developments in high-speed inkjet printing and faster, brighter and more versatile inks are making it economical for even mass-market brands and retailers to source fabric closer to their distribution base, with shorter product development times for more effective inventory management.
