World Textile Information Network (WTiN), the UK-based information provider to the global textile & apparel industry, is hosting its first hybrid Global Digital Textile Conference (GDTC) this year.
The event – which will take place in Como, Italy, and online – will offer delegates networking opportunities and enable knowledge sharing between stakeholders in the textile inkjet printing ecosystem. It will also provide understanding of the development of the production landscape up to 2030 and support the common goals within the industry.
However, because of the Milano furniture exhibition Salone del Mobile moving its dates from April to June, WTiN have taken the decision to change the dates of the GDTC to avoid this clash. Salone del Mobile expects more than 370,000 attendees over 5 days which will result in significant accommodation challenges in terms of both availability and price.
The inaugural GDTC will now take place on 5-6 October 2022 and will continue to provide an in-person and virtual platform for delegates across the full digital textile ecosystem.
Mark Jarvis, managing director at WTiN, says: “The decision to adjust the dates for GDTC has been taken to ensure that all delegates, speakers and sponsors have the opportunity to make the most of the conference and the surrounding city of Como.”
The GDTC will welcome the full digital textile ecosystem: printer OEMs; paper and ink manufacturers; software solution providers; textile printers and service providers; and brands.
The extensive programme will focus on sustainability within production processes, the impact of government policy across the textile industry, reshoring and its strategic agenda for textile innovation. It will also address the design aspects of digital textile printing and how the industry can better understand the needs of fashion and sportswear brands.
