Whenever there is a print exhibition abroad, I always wish to visit it, for two reasons; one, to know what's new in print technology and two, to know what’s the latest in the world of printing.

Besides this, I have a personal reason to visit such exhibitions, that is, to take some break from my routine schedules and visit some places of great interest.

Many of my industry friends who travel abroad for the trade shows have the same opinion; they also try to combine business travel with leisure. They spend lot of time at the exhibition stalls, talk to exhibitors, see samples and live demonstrations, and then, at the end of the day, visit some places of interest with their friends and family.

Mega international exhibitions such as SGIA, Fespa, Ipex, Drupa, etc attract progressive minded visitors from across the globe which is one of the reasons why such exhibitions also attract lot of exhibitors.

In India, however, print exhibitions are now-a-days becoming monotonous, have more of a regional tone and many of the big ones are organised in crowded metro cities. In some places, I have noticed that printers from the same region, where the shows are being organised, do not often visit. That may be because too many trade shows are being held nationally and regionally within a gap of few months. Also, apart from the exhibition, especially in metro cities, you do not get proper time to relax and have fun around.

Overseas, the purpose of visiting any trade show is not just business but also leisure, and that’s exactly why this year Screen Print India exhibition is being organised in Goa, a perfect tourist destination in India - pure business and sure leisure!

So take a break from your hectic schedule because now you have got the chance to enjoy and at the same time see hundreds of world class screen printed samples, update your technical knowledge, and meet many renowned industry experts and speakers during this four day Screen Print India 2014 Exhibition at GOA starting from 18 to 21 September 2014.
