MEX Exhibitions, the organizers of Gartex, are hosting the 4th edition of the show at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi, from 10–12 August 2019. This year, Messe Frankfurt will also be a part of the show. MEX entered into a strategic alliance with the German company for bringing together Gartex and Texprocess. So far, more than 200 exhibitors have confirmed their participation at the show.

Gartex Texprocess is one of the few exhibitions that offer diverse players in the garment industry to converge under a single roof and identify trends for the coming year. The show has been divided into three focus segments – Embroidery Zone, Garmenting & Apparel Machinery, and Innerwear Manufac Zone – encompassing four concurrent shows – Digitex, Fabrics & Trims, Denim, and India Laundry Show. India Laundry Show and Innerwear Manufac Zone will be two new highlights of this year’s exhibition. This segmentation has been done to address the interests of both mainstream and auxiliary industries.

Apart from showcasing innovative and state-of-the-art manufacturing technology and products, the show will also provide networking opportunities. Seminars and workshops at the show will allow players to discuss recent trends, opportunities and challenges in the industry.

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.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Indian Printer and Publisher’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
