Hosted in conjunction with the China Screen Printing & Graphic Imaging Association (CSGIA), the educational conference will take place on Thursday 22 October 2015. Seminars will cover various topics including the growth of digital textile and screen printing across Asia.

Visitors can also hear from screen printing guru, Charlie Taublieb, who will discuss Four Colour Process Printing. Charlie will also host daily workshops, providing visitors with the opportunity for a hands-on experience to master screen printing techniques and special effects.
Jennifer Shen, President of CSGIA, will also discuss the latest findings of the FESPA Print Census, including emerging trends and areas of growth for businesses in the wide format print industry.
Roz McGuinness, Divisional Director, FESPA comments: “Following the success of our previous two shows, we are delighted to bring back the Educational Conference. The results of our Print Census show that demand for textile printing in Asia, and also worldwide is growing, therefore textile focused seminars from industry leaders will ensure visitors to FESPA China are up-to-date with the latest trends and techniques. There is a real appetite for learning in China and in conjunction with the CSGIA and our global market experience in organising exhibitions, we can tailor the features to the needs of the regional market.”
