India is currently registering more than 250,000 new infections every day1 - the coronavirus is continuing to spread. It is paramount to vaccinate the Indian population as soon as possible and protect it from Covid-19. Precisely what is happening at the Bombay Exhibition Center in Mumbai now. A few weeks ago, the exhibition halls were turned into a vaccination centre. For this year, Messe Frankfurt cancelled the Gartex Texprocess India, Screen Print India, ISH India and Media Expo trade shows. The events were originally planned to take place at the Bombay Exhibition Centre in May. Now it was revealed that vaccinations are still ongoing. Messe Frankfurt plans to announce new dates for the events shortly.

The summer editions of Gartex Texprocess India, Screen Print India, LED Expo and Media Expo will be staged in New-Delhi in August as scheduled. In addition, organiser Messe Frankfurt also intends to shortly present a digital programme. "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,” says Raj Manek, executive director and board member of Messe Frankfurt Asia Holdings.
