Gartex Texprocess India announces new dates

Expo for textile supply chain

The expo was originally scheduled for August 2020

Gartex Texprocess India, an exhibition on the garment and textile manufacturing supply chain, has announced new dates for its Delhi and Mumbai editions. While the Delhi edition will take place from 17 – 19 December 2020 in Greater Noida, the Mumbai edition has been scheduled from 19-21 March 2021.

Organized by MEX Exhibitions Pvt Ltd and Messe Frankfurt Trade Fairs India, Gartex Texprocess India was originally scheduled in August 2020. The organizers believe that the new dates will ensure the optimal revival of trade and provide additional time to exhibitors to plan their exhibits and product launches more effectively in the current environment.

The decision which was taken on the basis of feedback from exhibitors, partners, and industry associations, also aims to ensure that the event serves its objectives of business, knowledge, and tech-exchange in a more meaningful way when the entire textile fraternity can come together.

According to the organizers, the three-day fair provides an experience to participants not just by way of an extensive display of exhibits, but also through a series of seminars and workshops aimed at facilitating dialogue that highlight on-going trends, opportunities, and challenges for the business of textiles. Prominent highlights of the show include denim show, embroidery zone, garmenting & apparel machinery zone, digitex show, India laundry show, and fabrics & trims show.

Between now and it’s opening in December 2020, the organizers aim to continue to keep the industry connected through its webinar series to draw focus on sustainable measures and support the sector during its recovery phase.

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.
