Messe Frankfurt, organisers of the DS Printech China trade shows, has announced the digital and screen printing show will return to Guangzhou in May 2023 after China last month abandoned its zero-COVID policy. The organisers announce the return of the influential digital and screen printing trade fair in parallel with reports of easing pandemic restrictions in China, said Messe Frankfurt in a statement. With the market showing strong signs of growth in China and beyond, the business-friendly platform will be an important avenue for exhibitors to increase their foothold in the region.
The event was due to take place in November 2022 before being deferred as China continued its zero-Covid policy restrictions. With the restrictions now lifted, the show will take place from May 16 – 18, 2023 at the China Import and Export Fair Complex in Guangzhou. DS Printech China is a rebranding of two events—CSGIA and Textile Digital Printing China. The debut edition in Shenzhen in 2020 attracted 200 exhibitors, who connected with 8,853 visitors and over 130,000 online participants.
