Gartex Texprocess India is all set to be launched as a ‘hybrid’ event in 2021. The event will be held alongside Screen Print India. The events will bring the entire textile value chain together for business through their new hybrid format.
In conjunction with MEX Exhibitions Pvt Ltd, Messe Frankfurt Trade Fairs India Pvt Ltd announced that Gartex Texprocess India will be the first textile sector exhibition to take the hybrid route. Scheduled alongside Messe Frankfurt’s Screen Print India fair after a hiatus of one year due to trade and travel disruptions caused by the pandemic, both Mumbai and Delhi editions aim to bring the entire textile value chain together through their new co-located and hybrid formats.
The hybrid format for both the fairs are being specially curated by the organisers with live product demonstration features to allow exhibitors to showcase their innovations and new product range to buyers who may be unable to attend the physical fair, thus ensuring dual access to trade opportunities.
New Delhi edition rescheduled to August 2021
In order to keep the trade momentum going in the second half of the buying calendar, the organisers have also confirmed that the New Delhi edition of the co-located fairs (initially slated in December 2020) will now be rescheduled to 6 – 8 August 2021 at Pragati Maidan with its new hybrid format. Both Mumbai and Delhi editions will allow fair goers to explore a wide range of features like targeted business matchmaking, real-time video calling, scheduling meetings in advance, live knowledge sessions through the digital platform alongside the traditional physical event.
While the focus segments under Gartex Texprocess India will draw attention to innovations in garmenting & apparel machinery, Screen Print India will track technological advances in digital textile and screen-printing technologies. Prominent highlights of the show include Denim Show, embroidery zone, garmenting & apparel machinery zone, digitex show, India laundry show and fabrics & trims show. Together, the platform will also host a series of insightful sessions aiming to keep the industry abreast with the latest developments in textile, garment machinery and screen printing.
