India’s leading show for screen, textile, sublimation and digital printing industry, Screen Print India New Delhi has been moved to December 2021 and will take place alongside Gartex Texprocess India,while the Mumbai edition will be held in April 2022. The hybrid trade fairs aim to bring the industry together for crucial sourcing and learning opportunities, as well as create synergies between sector players of garment manufacturing and textile printing segments.

Messe Frankfurt India has announced that the first hybrid edition of Screen Print India New Delhi which was originally planned in August, will now be held from 3 – 5 December 2021 at PragatiMaidan, New Delhi.

The decision to move the dates of the fair aims to provide more time and flexibility for exhibitors to plan their participation, while enabling organisers to create a business environment that is strongly conducive to host the fair.Following the New Delhi edition, the Mumbai edition of Screen Print India will behosted as ahybrid fair from 21 - 23 April 2022 at Bombay Exhibition Centre, alongside Gartex Texprocess India Mumbai edition.

Over the past few years, the screen-printing industry has witnessed  stronggrowth. The increasing preference for home delivery and e-commerce services have continued to be a major driver for the label and package printing segment even during lockdowns. With the industry taking resilient steps to move forward, Screen Print India aims to facilitate market reconnection, promoting in-person networking as well as restoring business continuity to ensure sector’s growth.

Across the three days of the exhibition,the virtual format of Screen Print India New Delhiwill showcase a series of knowledge sessions and live demos, and will place a key emphasis on product showcases as well as exhibitor search. The physical format in-parallel, will provide a first-hand experience of witnessing the products live and interacting with the exhibitors face-to-face.Furthermore, the physical exhibition will be organised under the parameters of MFI SafeConnect, thus ensuring a secure B2B networking experience.

The hybrid edition of Screen Print India New Delhi will be hosted alongside Gartex Texprocess India for the benefit of printing professionals who are commonly engaged in both textile and screen-printing segments.
