Over 200 firms to attend screen and digital printing tech expo
AsemconnectVietnam - More than 200 local and international companies will descend to a three-day international screen printing and digital printing technology exhibition slated to open on May 18.
The first such show in Vietnam is being organized by the Asia-Pacific Screen Printing & Graphic Imaging Association (ASGA) at the Saigon Exhibition and Convention Center (SECC).
Participating enterprises come from 11 countries and territories including Japan, China, Vietnam, India, Thailand, South Korea, Singapore, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Taiwan and Hong Kong.
ASGA has organized the show in many countries since 2001. This is the first time the event has been brought to Vietnam as there are many investment projects in the textile, footwear, electronics, packaging and ceramics sectors and 80% of Vietnamese printing houses are using screen rather than digital printing technology.
Therefore, ASGA expects the exhibition will help develop printing technology in Vietnam.
Johnny Shell, vice president of the Specialty Graphic Imaging Association (SGIA), will be showing up at the exhibition to share his knowledge of and experience in advanced textile printing technology.
ASGA was established in 1994 with 11 countries – Japan, South Korea, China, Thailand, Indonesia, India, Philippines, Vietnam, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Australia – becoming members.
The association’s mission is to develop modern digital, specialty and screen printing technologies in Asia-Pacific countries through specialized exhibitions.
