Mr. Chopra, an eminent personality, not only in the Print Industry but also in Media and Commerce, said he was extremely happy that SPAI-FESPA was working at the development of Screen Printing and impressed with the efforts being made to take these exhibitions to Tier II & Tier III, which he has seen for the first time.
He urged the Printers present, to make the best of the presence of all the participants and not to miss the opportunity of asking any queries that they had, quite freely.
Around 600 visitors were able to benefit from the shows in these three locations getting exposed to the different products and services between 6.00 to 9.00 pm at the first two locations and 3.00 to 6.00 pm at the last location, on consecutive days.
The printers at all 3 locations visiting the shows were quite keen to see the value proposition that Screen Printing can provide, which they were not previously aware of. The exposure seems to have enthused in them the urge to see live demo of various machines with end products being rolled out in front of their eyes & feel the output with their own hands. Hence, many requests have been made to SPAI, to conduct a 2 day Exhibition with demos.
The exhibitors (in alphabetic order) were Aeon Feteks, Abhishek Print Line, Colors-UV Inks, Dulari Digital, Grafica Flextronica, Gurbaksish Enterprises (Omega), KMI Business Technologies, Photokina Chemicals, Saill Industries Ltd., Screentex, Technova Imaging & and the SPAI-FESPA table. KMI displayed their Digital Printing Machine & Technova displayed their positive creating machine.
Manufacturers of Screen & Digital products can use CCTTEs as the ideal special purpose vehicle to introduce/reach their products across India or find local distributors for their products – Large coverage at a low cost. For those who cannot be present there, SPAI can arrange to provide hosts to manage your Table Tops and give you database of all visitors.
In appreciation to the support that was given by NOPA, OPAL & JOPA and their team, for all their efforts & hard work for the local arrangements, in these 3 locations and for organising the printers from their respective locations and nearby places to visit the event, SPAI gave them a memento each.
