Plus new partnership with World Textile Information Network (WTiN)
Messe Frankfurt is pleased to announce the launch of its highly anticipated digital printing technology focused trade event, Avanprint USA. The launch of Avanprint USA follows the successful launch of Avanprint Paris and is a joint partnership with World Textile Information Network (WTiN). Avanprint USA aims to bring together digital printing pioneers and North America’s top apparel design and sourcing professionals over the course of three days in New York City. This new sourcing platform will showcase the latest innovations in digital textile printing technology, including machinery, inks, software, products and services, and more. The first edition will debut at the Javits Convention Center alongside the Summer 2017 edition of Texworld USA, one of North America’s premier fabric textile trade events, on July 17th, 2017.
Avanprint USA will provide fashion textile buyers and sourcing professionals a rare opportunity to connect directly with market leaders in the digital printing industry in order to understand the advantages that advanced printing technology can provide throughout their design process and ultimately, to their bottom line. The show will also feature live demonstrations of digital textile printing technologies and a textile print trend area.
“As a leader in textile events worldwide, Messe Frankfurt keeps its finger on the pulse of industry innovation in the North American market and beyond”, said Dennis Smith, President, Messe Frankfurt North America. “We have seen the tremendous growth that the digital printing industry is experiencing and have sought to provide an innovative business platform where our forward-thinking exhibitors and visitors can connect directly with these technology leaders.
