In line with the recent
announcements and new measures in
place to tackle resurging cases in
Mumbai, Industry leading shows
such as Gartex Texprocess India,
Screen Print India, ISH India powered
by IPA, Media Expo and LED Expo
have been rescheduled.

The state government’s recent
advisories aimed at breaking the
spread of the second wave as well as
the on-going vaccination programmes
have led to the Bombay Exhibition
Centre (BEC) simultaneously doubling
up as a jumbo care centre as well as a
vaccination centre. Inaccessibility of
the venue and the new measures put
in place by regional
governments make it impossible to
host large-scale trade shows in the
coming months.

In the interest of all stakeholders,
Messe Frankfurt India has prudently
decided to postpone its physical trade
fairs planned for May 2021 which
include the Mumbai editions of:
Gartex Texprocess India (4-6 May),
Screen Print India (4-6 May), ISH India
powered by IPA (20-22 May), Media
Expo (20-22 May) and LED Expo
(20-22 May). While the Delhi editions
of Gartex Texprocess India, Screen
Print India, LED Expo and Media Expo
continue to be on schedule, the new
dates for the Mumbai editions will be
announced in coherence with
government guidelines, as soon as
the venue is made safely accessible.

Raj Manek, Executive Director &
Board Member, Messe Frankfurt Asia
Holdings Ltd said: “We understand
that the business community wants
to get back to meeting face-to-face,
and whilst we have been planning
positively for physical tradeshows, it
has become necessary to make
further changes to the fair dates. The
current situation requires to take into
consideration all factors that will
affect planning certainty for the
stakeholders. Nonetheless, ‘trade
continuity’ for our exhibitors in the
coming months will remain our
prime objective and we are focusing
efforts on the Delhi editions of the
fairs as well as extending our digital
offerings and business matchmaking
across diverse sectors.”

Despite the new lockdown
restrictions, the Indian economy
reeling under the negative impact
since the onset of the pandemic
shows no signs of slowing down the
business momentum which has been
picking up in 2021. The vaccination
progress in many countries is being
closely watched and is an
encouraging sign that the situation
will ease soon.
