The acquisition has been made to strengthen the presence of Messe Frankfurt India (a subsidiary of one of the world’s leading trade show organisers Messe Frankfurt Exhibition GmbH) in the country.

Previously owned and managed by Aditya Expositions Pvt Ltd, the acquisition not only reinforces its position as a formidable player in the print sector but also broadens its scope in the textile technologies portfolio.

Raj Manek, executive director and board member of Messe Frankfurt Asia Holding Ltd said Screen Print India, being the only dedicated show in this segment, accelerates their strategy to expand and enhance the offerings they provide to their customers and partners in the printing and textile sectors. “By allowing both Media Expo and Screen Print India to be independent of each other, we aim at developing the exhibitions in a more targeted and well-defined manner to suit their respective visitor profiles and market demands. Going forward, we also aim to expand the exhibit segments and develop the scale of the platform to that of internationally renowned exhibitions in this space.”
