Screentex India 2020 show to be held in New Delhi

For the screen printing industry of India


Screen Printers Association of India (SPAI) and SJ Exposition Pvt. Ltd. have announced dates for Screentex India 2020 show – the first international tradeshow that will bring together the screen, digital, textile, sublimation, and industrial printing industry. The three-day show will be held from 1 to 3 August 2020, at Pragati Madan, New Delhi.

According to the organizers, the objective of the show is to bring together the industry and act as an enabler of technology adoption across the printing fraternity. Screentex India 2020 show has already received support from industry technology providers such as Grafica, Fujifilm, Photokina, Unitech, JN Arora, Zibo Group, and AND Global Sales Corporation, among others.

Commenting on the show, Jignesh Lapasiya, secretary, SPAI said, “Screentex India 2020 is a humble effort by us to ensure that the industry never stops learning and growing. We are committed to our cause of making print prosper. We saw a gap in the screen printing industry where knowledge, technology exchange and business ROI was not being served to the whole spectrum. Thus, we wanted to organize a show that could bridge this gap.”
The show has also received response from international associations such as FESPA, Printing Industry Association of Bangladesh, and national associations such as IPAMA, TEKPA, MPLA and OPA.

“We saw Screentex 2020 as an ideal platform for us as they have been consistently adding value to screen, digital and textile printing industry by means of print media. They are a well-recognized and respected brand with presence in almost all leading regional, national and international exhibitions. I think ScreenTex 2020 will not only offer an ideal space for us to showcase our new products but also give us a platform to understand what more our customers want,” Raghav Rao, managing director of Fujifilm said.

ScreenTex is the official media partner of the show and Design4Web is the social media marketing partner.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
