The delayed edition of DS Printech China will now take place from 27 – 29 September 2021 following the postponement from its early August date. The digital and screen printing fair will remain at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre, taking place in halls N4 & N5.

DS Printech China, which was to take place in Shanghai from 6 – 8 August, was rescheduled due to the recent emergence of Covid-19 cases in different provinces in China.

“We are pleased to have already secured new dates with the fairground to give all participants as much notice as possible to plan their involvement. After the successful edition in Shenzhen last year, the first under the rebranded DS Printech name, we are excited to bring the fair to Shanghai this time around and to provide a much-needed boost to the industry’s recovery following the impact from the pandemic,” Wendy Wen, senior general manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) said. 

DS Printech on receiving valuable feedback from its exhibitors and visitors

“The feedback we’re receiving from exhibitors and visitors at all our events in China this year is that they highly value the face-to-face interactions trade fairs offer after these encounters had been curtailed over the last year. We look forward to once again providing this interaction for the digital and screen printing industry at the end of September in Shanghai,” she added. 

DS Printech China, a platform dedicated to the digital and screen printing industry, is a rebranded fair of two events: CSGIA and Textile Digital Printing China. The fair is co-organized by Messe Frankfurt (HK), China Screen Printing & Graphic Imaging Association (CSGIA), and Guangzhou Teyin Exhibition Service

The first edition after rebranding was successfully held in Shenzhen in October 2020. South China and East China are the two major markets for screen printing and digital printing in China. 

 

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.
