7 Jul 2020

With an aim to help businesses re-connect and strengthen their supply chains as they gradually re-open, Messe Frankfurt India has announced new dates for the 2020 edition of Screen Print India. The exhibition, which will mark its launch in New Delhi this year, will join the premier trade fair for the textile industry, Gartex Texprocess India, from 17 – 19 December 2020 at India Expo Mart, Delhi-NCR. Given the current global situation, the platform will play a key role in analysing market demand and where sectors like screen printing, textile printing, digital and sublimation are heading.

With the implementation of Unlock 2.0 by the government, businesses in India are slowly starting to re-open their doors. Working together in close consultation with sector players and industry associations, Messe Frankfurt India has announced new dates for Screen Print India - India’s leading trade fair for screen, textile, sublimation and digital printing technologies. Originally scheduled in March, the exhibition will now mark its Delhi launch in December 2020 together with Gartex Texprocess India and aims to provide sector players with a secure business environment allowing them to reconnect, explore new market demands and re-build their supply chains.

According to industry experts, the label and package printing industry will witness a strong growth in the coming months as there will a surge in disposable and flexible packaging, which are now being considered more hygienic due to limited handling. The rise in food delivery and takeaway services is expected to further drive demand for disposable and flexible packaging. In continuation with its efforts to serve the industry with valuable insights from sector experts during the lockdown period, Messe Frankfurt India organised a series of webinars. During one of the webinars focused on “Embracing change in current business models to stay relevant”, Mr Dharminder Biharie, CEO, BizzModell emphasised that: “in the post lockdown era, the screen and digital printing industry will see a comfortable growth as there will be an increase in demand for food packaging and labelling manufacturers, especially in metro cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata and others.”

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. 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.

Continuing the list of highlights, Screen Print India 2020 will host Screen Print Excellence Awards to honour path-breakers and 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.

With a heritage dating back to 1994, Screen Print India has undoubtedly been the most trusted and resourceful business platform for exhibitors to showcase their innovative and state-of-the-art manufacturing technology and products. The agenda for this year’s event would be significant in terms of facilitating market reconnection, promoting in-person networking as well as restoring business continuity to ensure this sector's growth in the economy.
