Messe Frankfurt India all set to host the first hybrid edition of Screen Print India.

India’s premier trade fair for screen, textile, sublimation and digital printing technologies – Screen Print India is ready to kick-off its maiden hybrid edition from 3 – 5 December 2021 at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi, alongside Gartex Texprocess India.

The multimodal trade fair will play a crucial role in supporting the industry in recovery post-pandemic, by providing a strongly targeted and well-integrated business platform.

Screen Print India has been at the forefront in encouraging trade opportunities for the screen printing, textile printing and specialty graphic imaging industries with a common business platform for over two decades. This year, occurring for the first time after the pandemic, Screen Print India is ready to host buyers and visitors in the form of a hybrid trade fair alongside Gartex Texprocess India.

Slated to be held from 3 – 5 December 2021 at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi, the physical format of Screen Print India will be organised under MFI SafeConnect standards to render safe and qualitative buyer-seller interaction. Simultaneously, buyers and visitors who are unable to attend the show floor can tune-in on the virtual format of the exhibition which supports targeted business matchmaking.

During the three-day exhibition, Screen Print India New Delhi will host brands like Green Printing Solutions Pvt Ltd, JN Arora, Konica Minolta Business Solutions Pvt Ltd, Print Dynamics, Skyscreen International Pvt Ltd and Zydex Industries Pvt Ltd. The exhibitors will showcase an array of products in screen & textile printing machines, screen & textile printing materials and consumables, soft signage printing and sublimation printing.

Mr. Vijay Kamat, National Product Manager, Konica Minolta, shared about his participation and product launch at the upcoming hybrid edition: “During the pandemic, our development team in Japan and France were working on new technology, and we are eager to showcase these new products to our esteemed customers at Screen Print India. We are looking forward to demonstrating our fascinating new technology in MGI Digital Embellishment Solutions which is a digital alternative to screen printing applications. Traditional screen printing techniques require special blocks for foiling and special screening for screen printing, however these are totally eliminated in the digital process. Here we make a digital mask of the design, and depending on the mask design the UV and foiling is put on the media using inkjet technology.”

Yet another leader from the screen printing industry, Mr Anil Brahmbhatt, President - Screen Printing & Graphic Association of India & Managing Director - Skyscreen International (P) Ltd, shared: “There is a strong need for industry members across the spectrum of screen printing and other printing segments to start moving forward once again and take strides on the path to profits. For this, it is very important to reconnect with customers and possible partners situated across multiple locations. The Screen Print India exhibition has a proven track record in these aspects so yes, the industry is looking forward to interface, exhibit their offerings and engage in networking as well.”

The convergence of leading brands and prospective buyers from across India will make way for crucial business and networking opportunities at the hybrid edition of Screen Print India New Delhi 2021. With the industry taking resilient steps to move forward post-pandemic, the hybrid trade fair in December aims to facilitate market reconnection, promoting in-person networking as well as restoring business continuity to ensure sector’s growth.
