Materials producer Soyang Europe has revealed that it will exhibit at The Print Show 2021, saying it is “imperative” exhibitions return to help the industry return to normal trading.

Last week, organisers of The Print Show confirmed the event would return in September, following its absence in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Soyang Europe is one of the first companies to confirm it will exhibit at the show since the announcement, with plans already in the works as to what it will showcase at the NEC.

“We have chosen to exhibit at The Print Show 2021 because we have new collections to showcase, including textiles made from recycled yarns namely the R Range and non-PVC materials from the Solar range,” Soyang Europe managing director Mark Mashiter says.

“Our main aim will be to meet new and existing clients, as well as learn what the industry need are moving forward.”

The Print Show will be the first UK-focused exhibition since the outbreak of Covid-19 early last year, and Mashiter says it is critical the event returns this year, believing it has a key role to play in the industry’s recovery.

“It’s imperative to have exhibitions, but also for us to support our industry and get back to normal trading to boost the economy,” Mashiter says.

The Print Show 2021 will run from September 28th to 30th at the NEC in Birmingham.
