DS Printech
A platform dedicated to the screen and digital printing industry

A number of digital and screen printers and equipment suppliers who have confirmed their participation in the debut edition of DS Printech China are assisting during the COVID-19 pandemic by contributing resources and skills to ease the pressure on the face mask and other PPE supply chains. Some are also providing online and other special customer services to help the industry navigate this uncertain time.

“In the global fight against the pandemic, every effort in preventing the spread of the virus counts. We are glad to see that digital and screen printers in the textile industry have played an important role in assisting the frontline pandemic response,” said Wendy Wen, senior general manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd. “The kind and meaningful gestures of our exhibitors have demonstrated their dedication to social responsibility and commitment to the community.”

Gildan has leveraged its manufacturing facilities to produce non-medical face masks and isolation gowns. Cooperating with various business partners, the company is helping to lessen the current shortage of these much-needed items in the healthcare community. The Canadian company is a leading apparel manufacturer that owns a diversified portfolio of brands such as Gildan, American Apparel, and Comfort Colors among others. Their products are sold to a broad range of customers including wholesale distributors, screen printers and embellishers, retailers, and global lifestyle brand companies.

Brother International Corporation (USA) will be donating up to 100 industrial sewing machines to support the manufacturing of personal protective equipment. The first few companies receiving the donations will include a coalition of well-known American apparel brands and textile companies such as Los Angeles Apparel, Beverly Knits, and SanMar. Brother is a premier provider of a home office and business products, home sewing and crafting appliances as well as industrial solutions for the print and imaging, labeling and sewing sectors.

Beijing JHF Technology Co., Ltd., from China, donated RMB 1.2 million (USD 169,000) to support the efforts in containing the spread of the virus in Shandong province. As one of the leading manufacturers in the global inkjet printing industry, the company is a pioneer in the development of UV digital inkjet printing. They develop, manufacture, and market high-quality inkjet printing equipment for advertising and industrial printing.

ATMA, a Taiwan-based supplier that will exhibit at DS Printech, has developed a contingency plan to ensure smooth operation and maintain customer relations while minimizing physical contact. They are providing online customer service, and video demos for equipment installation and more. Founded in 1979, the company focuses on R&D and manufacturing of screen printing machinery. Their products are exported to over 70 countries and regions.

DS Printech China, a platform dedicated to the screen and digital printing industry, is a rebranded fair of two pre-existing events: CSGIA and the concurrent Textile Digital Printing China. The new fair will take place at the brand-new Shenzhen World Exhibition and Convention Center from 28 – 30 October 2020.

The fair is co-organized by Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd, China Screen Printing & Graphic Imaging Association (CSGIA), and Guangzhou Teyin Exhibition Service.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
