“China has done a great job of bringing the latest occurrence of COVID cases under control in a short period of time. However, as we look forward to this month, there is always the possibility of travel disruptions in Shanghai. With this in mind, and to ensure that we adhere to government guidelines for pandemic containment, we have decided to hold the fair next January instead,” Wendy Wen, Senior Managing Director of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd, said in a statement.
Originally scheduled for the end of September, the DS Printech China screen printing and digital exhibition will now be held from January 7 to 9, 2022 at the Shanghai New International Expo Center. The postponed dates are intended to provide greater certainty to participants. It is a trade show renamed with two events: CSGIA and Textile Digital Printing China.
“Following the success of the first edition in Shenzhen last year, we are committed to successfully hosting this next event in Shanghai, as feedback from exhibitors and buyers indicates that trade shows are playing an important role in their recovery from the impact of the pandemic. We therefore look forward to welcoming the industry to the show in January 2022 to start the new year on a positive note,” Wen added.
The 2020 edition of DS Printech China welcomed 200 exhibitors and 8,853 visitors, while there were over 1,30,000 online attendees. The exhibition, an influential platform dedicated to the screen printing and digital industry, is a renamed exhibition of two events: CSGIA and Textile Digital Printing China. It is co-organized by Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd, China Screen Printing & Graphic Imaging Association (CSGIA) and Guangzhou Teyin Exhibition Service.
