New dates announced for Gulf Print & Pack 2021

Gulf Print & Pack 2021, a leading print technology sourcing show for printers and Print Service Providers (PSPs), has been postponed to December 2021 due to the Covid-19 situation.
 
Tarsus Group, the organiser of the event, said the show, originally scheduled to take place between April 6 and 8, will now take place from December 14 and 16, 2021 in Dubai. 
 
Lisa Milburn, Managing Director of Gulf Print & Pack, said: “We have taken the difficult decision to postpone Gulf Print & Pack 2021 due to the impact of coronavirus/Covid-19. Given the vast amount of preparation that goes into our shows, this is not a decision we have taken lightly. However, the health and safety of our exhibitors, visitors and staff remains our top priority. We have been continuously monitoring developments in the MEA region over the last few months and, working on the advice of our local partners,  Dubai World Trade Centre, and listening to feedback from exhibitors, we feel the best course of action is to postpone the show to later in the year, when the outbreak has subsided. 
 
“The show is an important catalyst for triggering local business in the MEA region’s commercial and package printing sector, and moving the domestic market forward. Postponing the show to December 2021 allows us to not only meet our commitment to the region’s industry but also the opportunity to deliver an even more ambitious event. Most importantly, the show will play a vital role in driving the economic recovery of the MEA region’s printing industry, along with its supply chain, as we move through the post coronavirus/COVID-19 recovery phase. I urge everyone involved to embrace the opportunity to help our community plan for the future by joining us at the show in December 2021.”
