Roland DG to participate in the FuturePrint Virtual Summit

Roland to present next generation interior décor and textile solutions at Futureprint Virtual Summit.

Roland DG will participate in the FuturePrint Virtual Summit taking place from 12th - 16th October, 2020.

The event is free to join and brings together 120 speakers spanning 15 countries to discuss a range of hot topics across the industrial, wide format and commercial printing, packaging and labelling industries.

Roland DG’s presence at the event is primarily focused on exploring emerging trends in interior design and textiles through two virtual panel sessions, as well as showcasing recent innovations from Roland DG designed to support printers that are manufacturing products in both of these categories.

Exploring emerging trends

At 14.00 BST on Tuesday 13th October, 2020, Paul Willems, head of product management and business development at Roland DG EMEA, will participate in a panel discussion entitled ‘Printed Interior Decor: An Untapped Opportunity’. He will explain that the category’s explosive growth, strong margins and comparative resilience to COVID-19 make it an attractive diversification opportunity for printers.

In his session on Wednesday 14th October, 2020 at 14.30 BST entitled ‘Fashion and Garment Textile: Is It Time To Bring It Home?’, Joe Wigzell, Academy Manager, Roland DG EMEA, will address the need to pivot from offshore to nearshore and homeshore textile production, and the impact this change will have on the industry, its efficiency, and its long-term future.

Stephen Davis, EMEA Marketing Director at Roland DG comments: “In the last 12 to 18 months, we’ve invested heavily in creating innovative products that answer specific unmet needs from printers operating in the interior design and textile sectors. We’re looking forward to using our platform at FuturePrint Virtual Summit to provide insights and guidance on how these two categories are developing, as well as spotlighting the EJ-640 DECO and XT-640S-DTG that debuted earlier this year.”
