The Shanghai and Guangzhou editions of DS Printech China will be merged due to the pandemic situation in China, Messe Frankfurt, the organizer of the event, said on 14 July.

“With the evolving circumstances of the pandemic situation in China, the organizers of DS Printech China have announced the merging of the Shanghai and Guangzhou editions,” Messe Frankfurt said. Originally scheduled to take place from 18 – 20 May 2022 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre, the Shanghai fair will now be amalgamated with the Guangzhou fair, which will be held from 16 – 18 November 2022 at the China Import and Export Fair Complex in Guangzhou. 

Change comes after extensive discussions with the stakeholder

In order to support the government to contain the spread of Covid-19 in Shanghai and other cities in China, the fair organizers have decided to merge the Shanghai and Guangzhou fairs after extensive evaluation and discussions with stakeholders. The decision was also made in an effort to protect the safety of fairgoers and to maximize their participation effectiveness. 

Wendy Wen, senior general manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) explained, “We would like to express our sincere thanks to all participants for their continued understanding, patience and support. The preparation work has kicked into full gear and we very much look forward to hosting an effective industry event safely in Guangzhou.”

DS Printech China is a rebranding of two events — CSGIA and Textile Digital Printing China. The debut edition in Shenzhen in 2020 attracted 200 exhibitors, who connected with 8,853 visitors and over 130,000 online participants.

The fair is co-organized by Messe Frankfurt (HK), China Screen Printing & Graphic Imaging Association (CSGIA) and Guangzhou Teyin Exhibition Service.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
