drupa sticks to proven four-year cycle
The next edition of drupa, the world’s biggest tradeshow for print and cross-media solutions, will take place in Düsseldorf, Germany, from 23 June to 3 July 2020. With this decision Messe Düsseldorf is responding to the numerous demands voiced by exhibiting industry players.
“The current drupa, with its outstanding business deals and positive atmosphere really stands out and has made one thing perfectly clear: “Its USP are the production lines and are in full operation here,” explains Werner M. Dornscheidt, President & CEO of Messe Düsseldorf, and adds: “This is one of the reasons why drupa is such a beacon. Precisely this investment – this is what many representatives of the exhibitor community have assured us over the past few days here – they want to be at and with drupa in the future, their No. 1 international industry platform. Therefore in the interest of our customers and international markets, drupa will stick to its 4-year cycle.”
The re-positioning of drupa 2016, its focus on future topics as well as the shorter duration of eleven days have all proven to be correct decisions. drupa 2016 is still on until 10 June. 1,837 exhibitors from 54 countries are currently showcasing their innovations and applications for print and cross-media solutions in Düsseldorf’s 19 exhibition halls.
