Fresener's Fabric at FESPA Fabric 2011

The Fresener's Fabric Showcase Theatre programme is specifically compiled to benefit the garment decorators and textile printers who will visit FESPA Fabric, running alongside FESPA Digital this year. The programme will support them with latest industry intelligence, guide them through recent technology developments, and demonstrate how these can be used to grow business.
The three-day Fresener's Fabric Showcase Theatre programme can be accessed at http://bit.ly/i9CO9X.  It features 18 sessions co-ordinated by Scott Fresener, SGIA Parmele Award winner and owner of T-Biz International. Scott will himself host a number of seminars on topics ranging from Secrets of High End Screen Printing on T-Shirts to The State of Direct-to-Garment Today and Beyond.

Alongside Scott, a number of leading garment industry spokespeople will share their expertise, including Kornit Digital's Sarel Ashkenazi, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development. Sarel will cover high performance direct-to-garment solutions, segmenting the garment printing market and the technologies used by each of the segments to clarify that one solution does not fit all. Garment decorators interested in profitable sublimation printing will want to hear Mario Panter, CEO of Print Equipment's session on How to Make Money with Sublimation. Mario will pack the session with tips and tricks on how to market, sell and effectively present these products.

Programme coordinator Scott Fresener comments: "Fresener's Fabric Showcase Theatre is guaranteed to give business owners and managers in the garment decoration sector invaluable information on the creative opportunities open to their companies. This line-up of hand-picked experts will help printers consider how to develop their printed garment service offering to stimulate profitable growth."
