DS Printech China, due to take place in Shanghai from 6 – 8 August, will be rescheduled due to the recent emergence of Covid-19 cases in different provinces in China. A new date for the digital and screen printing fair will be announced shortly.

“In response to the relevant government authorities’ requirements on pandemic containment and to safeguard the health and safety of all attendees, we have decided to postpone DS Printech China to a later date,” Wendy Wen, senior general manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd explained. 

“The wellbeing of all our stakeholders is paramount, while we also wish to ensure the fair takes place at a time when participants will be able to travel safely. We appreciate the ongoing support and understanding of our exhibitors and visitors and hope to be able to announce the new details soon.”

DS Printech is a rebranded fair of CSGIA and Textile Digital Printing China

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) Ltd, 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.
