Meanwhile, the Mumbai edition of Screen Print India will be hosted as a hybrid fair from 21-23 April 2022 at Bombay Exhibition Centre, alongside Gartex Texprocess India Mumbai edition.
Messe Frankfurt stated that the decision to postpone the show is 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.
“Over the past few years, the screen-printing industry has witnessed strong growth. The increasing preference for home delivery and eCommerce 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,” the organiser stated.

Furthermore, the physical exhibition will be organised under the parameters of MFI SafeConnect, thus ensuring a secure B2B networking experience.
