DS Printech China 2022 deferred

2 Nov 2022

In light of rising Covid-19 cases in Guangzhou, and in support of the government’s pandemic containment measures, the organisers have deferred DS Printech China. Originally due to take place from 16 – 18 November 2022, the rescheduled fair will still be held at the China Import and Export Fair Complex in Guangzhou. A new date will be announced in due course.

Ms Wilmet Shea, Deputy General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd, explained: “After monitoring the city’s evolving pandemic situation, and following discussions with stakeholders, we determined that rescheduling the fair was necessary to prioritise the safety of fairgoers. I would like to thank all participants for their patience and understanding, and to reaffirm our ongoing commitment to provide a safe and business-friendly platform for the digital and screen printing industry.”

DS Printech China is a rebranding of two events: CSGIA and Textile Digital Printing China. The fair is co-organised by Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd, China Screen Printing & Graphic Imaging Association (CSGIA) and Guangzhou Teyin Exhibition Service.
