Mimaki and Hybrid are all set to wow everyone at FESPA 2016. You can get a free coffee at their stand.
Mimaki distributor for the UK and Ireland, Hybrid Services Ltd., will be firing on all cylinders at the FESPA Digital 2016, scheduled for 8th – 11th March 2016 in Amsterdam. Hybrid have chosen their stand position wisely because it will be one of the first that visitors to the show will see when they enter.
Stephen Woodall is Hybrid’s National Sales Manager – Textile & Apparel and he is already prepared for the show. He said “It affords us the opportunity to reveal new products and welcome visitors to an international stage.”
Mike Horsten is the General Manager Marketing EMEA at Mimaki Europe and he confirmed that they will be showing their broad portfolio of printing and cutting systems. He said that there will be new product announcements and visitors will see real-world examples of the original applications Mimaki systems can create in both sign & display graphics, as well as digital textile printing and garment decoration. He said “In line with the superheroes theme of the show, be sure to look for the superheroes portrayed in our samples, which visitors will be able to take away with them.” He confirmed that they are sponsoring the Wrap Masters competition, and they will be wrapping a vintage Audi at their stand as part of the final competition. You can even get a free coffee at the stand.
Crowning a superhero: Wrap Masters Competition.
Mimaki and Avery Dennison are joining forces as sponsors of the World Wrap Masters competition, which will run across the four days of the show. The competition starts on 8th March and the Grand Final will be on 11th. European Wrap Master will join winners from South Africa, Mexico, Denmark, Eurasia, Brazil, Ireland and France, who have already qualified.
From there, series finalists will compete to become FESPA World Wrap Master 2016 by wrapping Audi A1 Sportback vehicles using materials printed by Mimaki, as well as more challenging items, including clogs and a superhero-related item. This is a competition you will not want to miss.
Digital Textile Conference
The 8th March is the day that the one-day Digital Textile Conference is being held. It will feature an international line-up of digital textile printing experts, including Mike Horsten who will be speaking at 3:30pm on the topic of Digital Print in Fast Fashion.
Mike said “We had great success at Heimtextil in January with our full line-up of solutions that make it easy for visitors to expand their digital textile printing capabilities or implement new ones, printing vibrant, durable colours on a broad range of materials. We are pleased to be bringing these solutions to the FESPA Digital audience as well”.
Hybrids Stephen Woodall said “The Digital Textile Conference is an ideal opportunity for visitors interested in finding out what’s happening at the cutting edge of the textile sector to benefit from some expert insights. Mimaki’s peerless textile printing heritage puts us in a very strong position and we’ll have a number of our latest textile offerings on the stand for people to investigate further.”
Inspiration for a profitable future
Bringing this interview to a close, Mike said, "With our full portfolio of current and brand-new products showcased on the Mimaki stand, there will be no lack of inspiration. We believe that visitors to our booth will leave the show with several new ideas that will make their businesses more profitable in the future, and we look forward to talking with them to learn how we can help even more.”
