• Vanesa Krongold

• Ricardo Pava
• Daniel Del Barco and Sonia Chang
• Carlos de Moya
• Miguel Moyano, Alex Polo, and Maria Susana Rivadeneira Simball

• Kanbar College of Design Engineering and Commerce, Philadelphia University

The third annual event will also feature a kickoff keynoted by Minoru Usui, global president of Epson. A panel of fashion and apparel experts, moderated by Wall Street Journal VP and Publisher Anthony Cenname, will speak on technology’s role in fashion.

“With the market for worldwide digital textile printing expected to grow annually at almost 25 percent, this is a very exciting opportunity,” says Keith Kratzberg, president and CEO of Epson America, in a release.
