Messe Frankfurt India has announced new dates for the Mumbai edition of Screen Print India – one of the leading trade fairs for screen, textile, sublimation and digital printing technologies, which will open its doors alongside Gartex Texprocess India – trade fair for the textile industry – in March 2021.

With the announcement of new dates, the organiser has promised "to keep the industry abreast with the rapidly changing business landscape in the screen-printing sector". After the postponement of the 2020 edition of the show, Screen Print India will now be held in parallel with Gartex Texprocess India, from 19-21 March 2021 at the Bombay Exhibition Centre in Mumbai.

"With the gradual re-opening of commercial activities and businesses, the co-located fairs will enable the industry to channel their efforts back towards business development and cater to the needs of screen printing, textile and garment manufacturing industry players as it gears up to bring the production and manufacturing value chain under one roof," Messe Frankfurt India stated in a press note shared with PrintWeek.

While the focus segments under Gartex Texprocess India will draw attention to innovations in garmenting and apparel machinery, the product launches and live demos at Screen Print India will enable business visitors and traders to track technological advances in digital textile and screen-printing technologies, the organiser said. "The secure, business-focused ambience will enable both printing and textile sector players to showcase, source and strengthen their supply chains and keep pace with the shifting demand for screen printing, textile printing, digital and sublimation technologies across other sectors."

Screen Print India will also host a series of sessions on processes and innovations related to the graphics industry. Another key highlight of the trade fair is the Screen Print Excellence Awards that "upholds a strong tradition of honouring technology inventors and trailblasers within the screen-printing industry". With this in mind, the Mumbai edition will curate a special SPI Gallery to showcase award winning pieces of screen-printing excellence.

The organiser said that Screen Print India, which is also marking its debut in New Delhi in December this year, has garnered the support of leading industry associations including Screen Printing and Graphics Association of India (SGAI), South Indian Printers Association (SIPA), Madurai Screen Printers Association (MASPA), Tirupur Export Knit Printers Association (TEKPA), Tirupur Export Printing Managers Association (TEPMA) and Offset Printers Association (OPA).

"From technologically advanced to environmentally sustainable solutions, the platform through both its Mumbai and Delhi editions, promises to be a one-stop sourcing platform to cover a broad gamut of products in screen, textile, sublimation and digital printing technologies," the organiser concluded.
