The 2nd Vietnam International Exhibition on Screen Printing and Digital Printing Technology (ASGA Vietnam 2019), held last week at the Saigon Exhibition and Convention Center (SECC) in Ho Chi Minh City’s District 7, introduced the latest screen and digital printing solutions and provided a platform helping Vietnamese and foreign companies cooperate with each other and approach the latest technologies in the printing industry.

The exhibition was organized by the Asia Screen Printing and Graphic Imaging Association (ASGA), CCPIT Guangdong, the China Screen Printing and Graphic Imaging Association (CSGIA), the YUEZHAN Exhibition Corporation, and VINEXAD, under the Ministry of Industry and Trade. Major support was also provided by members of ASGA.

With an exhibition area of 8,000 sq m, ASGA Vietnam introduced the latest technologies, machinery, and equipment used in screen and digital printing. Some 10,000 visitors attended, from countries and territories such as Malaysia, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand, Sri Lanka, the Philippines, Hong Kong (China), China, and Vietnam.

In order to help participants make the most of the potential opportunities the exhibition offered, the organizer set up pavilions featuring hundreds of well-known global brands in the printing industry. Visitors had the chance to explore a variety of modern machinery and directly experience advanced printing techniques in a high-quality exhibition environment.

In addition to product launches and business matching, Mr. Johnny Shell, Vice President of the Specialty Graphic Imaging Association (SGIA), gave a presentation on “The Printing Industry: Past, Present & Future”. He provided an overview of historical developments in printing, the current situation of printing technologies and markets, and environmental issues and solutions to mitigate them.

Talks described the future of the printing industry in five to ten years’ time. The organizer hoped to provide those in attendance with a better understanding of printing and impart knowledge about which markets the printing industry serves, what present and future trends it follows, and how digital printing is gaining popularity in the market.

ASGA, a pioneering exhibition on printing technology and with the slogan “New Trend - New Opportunity - New Status”, is held every two years in Vietnam and is expected to make the country an ideal destination for introducing the latest printing technologies in Southeast Asia.
