THE COOL ZONE - HOT TECHNOLOGIES TRANSFORMING THE INDUSTRY

[TC]2 and SPESA, in conjunction with other participating partners, will introduce for the first time in the world, a totally new set of alternatives to produce apparel products to meet the "on-demand era" that is becoming a reality today. The "impossible" of yesterday becomes the "possible" of today.

  • Can you imagine designing a product without making a prototype?
  • Can you imagine coloring fabric without pre- or post-treatments?
  • Can you imagine distributing your product even before it is made?
  • Can you imagine using a cellular phone in an apparel production application?

The latest and most advanced digital world capabilities will be demonstrated in "The Cool Zone" to show how the "product" can be created, sold, shipped but not converted into the final physical product until it has been distributed as close as possible to the final customer. See "The Cool Zone" at SPESA EXPO - Pavilion #670.
