After a spectacular return in December 2021, the much-awaited Mumbai launch of Gartex Texprocess India and Denim Show will take place from 12 – 14 May 2022 at the Jio World Convention Centre in BKC, Mumbai. Taking center stage this year will be the show’s ‘Fabrics and Trims’ segment along with the co-located Screen Print India exhibition.

Witnessing the tremendous opportunities at the successfully concluded Delhi edition in December 2021, the industry is longing for a continuation of personal business meetings and strongly hinted at a Mumbai edition in the first half of the year to keep the trade momentum going. With the dates set for its Mumbai chapter, the B2B exhibition together with its co-located and focused segments aims to target trade visitors and textile hubs in the western and southern regions for its Mumbai debut.

As one of the most trusted textile and garment machinery exhibitions in the country, Gartex Texprocess India offers the industry a platform to bring forth industry innovations, hold creative and collaborative discussions with potential buyers and leverage the textile industry’s strong professional network. Innovative products and technologies, defining the latest trends in the industry, will be showcased to the visitors through focused concurrent platforms such as Denim Show, Fabrics & Trims Show, and Screen Print India during the three days. 

While the focus segments under Gartex Texprocess India will draw attention to innovations in garmenting and apparel machinery, Screen Print India will track technological advances in digital textile and screen-printing technologies expanding the machinery showcase. Owing to rapid technological changes, brands will conduct live demos of their latest technological offerings in screen printing, digital sublimation, heat transfer and textile printing, garment decoration to potential business visitors and traders. 

Fabrics are the pivot around which the entire garment manufacturing industry gyrates and trims add to the aesthetics meant for functional and commercial requirements. As fashion evolves, the need for variety in every aspect of garmenting increases, and the ‘Fabrics & Trims Show’ is a much-needed platform for bringing different fabrics, trimmings, embellishments, and accessories on one plate.

The denim industry in India has evolved significantly with ever-changing fashion trends making their way into other utility-driven products. With strong support from the Denim Manufacturers Association, the platform will celebrate the coming together of India’s biggest brands and denim mills. Innovative, fashionable, sustainable will define the Denim Show as the industry will get together to showcase their prowess at the Mumbai launch.

Jointly organized by Messe Frankfurt Trade Fairs India and Mex Exhibitions, the platform will also host a series of insightful sessions on the latest developments in textile, garment machinery, and screen printing with the objective to encourage investments, new market development and enable India to be a globally competitive textile manufacturing destination.

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.
