Screen Print India was to take place in March

Messe Frankfurt India has announced new dates for the 2020 edition of Screen Print India, trade fair for screen, textile, sublimation and digital printing technologies. The exhibition, which will mark its launch in New Delhi this year, will join Gartex Texprocess India, from 17 – 19 December 2020 at India Expo Mart, Delhi-NCR. The trade fair was originally scheduled for March.

As per Messe Frankfurt India, in the present situation, the exhibition will play a critical role in bringing together key industry players for knowledge-exchange sessions on topics related to the graphics industry, and aims to provide exhibitors and visitors with the latest trends.

“Screen Print India 2020 will make its debut in New Delhi alongside Gartex Texprocess India 2020, thus bringing latest advancements and machinery in sectors like textile printing, screen printing, digital and sublimation under one roof. Leading manufacturing brands will conduct live demos of their latest technological offerings to potential business visitors and traders during the three-day event,” it said.

Also, Screen Print India 2020 will host Screen Print Excellence Awards to honor technology inventors within the screen printing industry. The awards will also feature a special “SPI Sample Gallery” showcasing award winning pieces of screen printing excellence.

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.
