MEX Exhibitions Pvt Ltd and Messe Frankfurt Trade Fairs India Pvt Ltd have announced that GartexTexprocess India will be a textile sector hybrid exhibition. Scheduled alongside Messe Frankfurt’s Screen Print India fair, both Mumbai and Delhi editions aim to bring the entire textile value chain together through their new co-located and hybrid formats.
The Mumbai edition is set to bring industry players face-to-face with new opportunities from March 18-20, 2021 at the Bombay Exhibition Centre. The multimodal exhibition will allow screen printing and textile sector exhibitors and visitors to take full advantage of both physical interactions and virtual networking opportunities.
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 August 6-8, 2021 at PragatiMaidan with its new hybrid format.
The hybrid format for both the fairs is being 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.
Both Mumbai and Delhi editions will allow fair-goers to explore a wide range of features like targeted business match-making, real-time video calling, scheduling meetings in advance, live knowledge sessions through the digital platform alongside the traditional physical event.
Raj Manek, Executive Director and Board Member, Messe Frankfurt Asia Holdings Ltd, shared: “We are delighted to announce our first hybrid venture for the co-located shows – GartexTexprocess India and Screen Print India that will offer an intelligent combination of digital and physical interactions for business exchange. The textile and printing businesses thrive on the ‘touch-and-feel’ aspect of networking which makes the physical trade fair the number one choice for buyers. However, its virtual features will be the perfect extension to expand exhibitor visibility and networking opportunities with buyers.”
Gaurav Juneja, Director, MEX Exhibitions Pvt Ltd added: “The demand to meet in-person for business networking is strong and I believe the hybrid format, together with its co-location with Screen Print India fair, will create the perfect business synergy for the sector. We are looking forward to welcoming the entire industry for a successful first hybrid edition and are confident it will provide multi-fold trade opportunities to the sector.”
