Kornit Digital, a market leader in digital textile printing technology, invites all textile printers, garment decorators, Kornit users, prospective customers and anyone who is curious about the latest trends and technology in digital textile printing to its Kornit Discover events.

Taking place from 3-4 April in the New York Metropolitan area, from 11-12 April in Duesseldorf, and from 15-17 April in Hong Kong, each event will feature educational workshops with real-world insights delivered by high-level guest speakers.

Highlighting the North American event will be a keynote by Breakaway Sports owner Scott Goldstone, multiple case study presentations, and a panel discussion with editors of key publications serving the imprinted apparel industry. The European event will feature a keynote called The Future of Retail by futurist Kai Gondlach, a digital transformation review of the textile industry by Tansy Fall, editor-in-chief of Digital Textile 4.0 and an insightful chat with Kornit user Shirtracer, Nuremburg. The Asian instance will feature Ron Gilboa as main speaker and Kornit’s customer Paintory.

Visitors to Kornit Discover will also have the opportunity to get hands-on demonstrations on Kornit’s latest innovations. A new version of the Avalanche direct-to-garment printing system makes Kornit’s capabilities suitable for polyester printing. Based on the company's signature NeoPigment Process, this innovative technology was developed to overcome the limitations and challenges of polyester printing, solving a US$ 33 billion market problem.

It is designed to allow a wide application variety with no compromises on productivity, design or cost. In particular, it solves the challenge of dye migration. Kornit will also preview an all-new roll-to-roll printing system in the Duesseldorf and Hong Kong events and perform live demos of the Kornit Atlas, which has been launched in January and as a cost-efficient direct-to-garment printing system for imprinting hundreds of thousands of garments per year.

“There are still a lot of perceptions and opinions in the market about direct-to-garment printing and what its opportunities and limitations are,” commented Omer Kulka, Kornit Digital’s Vice President of Marketing and Product Strategy.

“Printing on dark polyester is a prime example: there is an opinion in the market that digital printing and dark poly don’t go well together, and we just lifted this barrier. With Kornit Discover, we are creating an industry event that will challenge these established thinking patterns. In fact, we will transform the way visitors think and print.”
