April 1, 2019

Kornit Digital Americas, Englewood, N.J., announced the speaker lineup for its “Kornit Discover” event, taking place April 3-4 at the company’s headquarters and Center of Excellence in Englewood, N.J.

The speakers include: Anthony Lilore, leader of RESTORE Clothing and a Cultural and Textile Arts Envoy representing the NYC Fashion Design community; Dave Sprague, creative director and designer for Manchester United Football Club; Scott Goldstone, president and owner of Breakaway Sports, a New Jersey-based printer specializing in customized team uniforms and promotional apparel; and Deborah Merrill and Andy Burchfield, representing DTG2Go as chief financial officer and director of operations, respectively.

The panel discussion also will include representatives of decorated-apparel industry publications: Marcia Derryberry, editor-in-chief, Impressions; Theresa Hegel, executive editor, Wearables; and Mike Clark, associate editor, Printwear and Sign & Graphics.

In addition to these speaking sessions, Kornit officially will debut its Kornit Avalanche Poly Pro, the first digital direct-to-garment (DTG) system built specifically for polyester and poly-blend substrates. Kornit Digital executives and product specialists will answer questions about the new technology, in addition to sharing best practices regarding the integration of this and other Kornit systems into a comprehensive print strategy, according to the company.

“With the release of three HD print systems in 2018, and most recently the advanced, high-capacity Atlas system, Kornit has leaped to the front of the digital class,” says Shai Terem, president of Kornit Digital Americas. “This week, we’re staking our ground as the first DTG provider to master dark polyester and poly blends, shattering the boundaries between digital and a sports-apparel and merchandise market that exceeded $100 billion last year in the U.S. alone. Our innovations in the field have attracted the attention of some of the most knowledgeable minds in apparel, and I encourage anyone to come and see the game-changing work we’re doing here in New Jersey.” — D.S
