The Spandex team will show visitors how to apply the latest and greatest materials in an energetic Vehicle Wrapping Live demonstration.

Gabi Parish, Marketing Manager at Spandex, said: “Vehicle wrapping is flourishing, with more and more manufacturers introducing new and exciting colours, effects and textures on a regular basis. In addition, the advent of adhesive systems that make it possible for signmakers to complete full vehicle wraps is also helping to the grow the market.

Antalis’ Décor Live demonstration will offer visitors a complete overview of large format inkjet technology and will illustrate how it can be profitably used for all types of decorative applications.

Katie Farr, Head of Marketing at Antalis, said: “With large format media playing an important role in the visual communications mix, we have designed our new Décor Live demos to be fun, informative and engaging, and we urge all attendees to pop by.”

With a focus on retail application, Hybrid Services’ Textile Printing Live demo, which will be located close to the entrance of Hall 18, will present an interactive digital production workshop where visitors can follow a printed textile product from initial design through to final realistation.

Brett Platt, Hybrid’s Textile Product Manager said: “The Textile Printing Live demo will offer visitors the opportunity to take home a textile product they’ve produced themselves, together with some inspiring ideas for extending the scope of their businesses.”
