The trade fair once again confirms its position as the world’s leading trade fair for the industry – the current exhibitor registration status already exceeds the figures of the same period for drupa 2016. With 1,800 exhibitors from more than 50 nations, drupa underscores that it is the most relevant and important platform for the global print industry in 2020. The top exhibitor nations are Germany, Italy, Japan, China, Great Britain and the Netherlands. Currently, there are 33% new exhibitors along the entire value-chain and various cross-sectional technologies.
The motto for the 11-day event is “embrace the future”, focusing on education, engagement and entertainment in an inspiring atmosphere.
drupa 2020 will be accompanied by a high-caliber ancillary program with renowned international speakers: the special forums drupa cube, drupa dna, touchpoint packaging and touchpoint 3D fab+print will provide high-quality knowledge transfer and inspiration.
Sabine Geldermann, Director of drupa & Global Head of Print Technologies, stated: “Messe Düsseldorf looks forward to welcoming exhibitors and visitors to experience the spirit of drupa, the innovative power and dynamics of the market and the unique charisma that only drupa offers. We look forward to a unique, successful and unforgettable experience.”
International key players confirm that they are adapting their technological innovations precisely to the drupa cycle. In a time of continuous change and transformation, drupa 2020 is the industry’s must-attend event: the trade fair provides guidance, provides decisive impetus for sustainable and future-oriented business models and offers a unique setting for networking and excellent new business contacts.
The city of Düsseldorf will again become drupacity. Together with restaurants, hotels and retailers an impressive hospitality concept will be implemented to ensure a good balance between busy trade fair days and entertainment in the city.
In addition to investments in the positioning of drupa, investments are also be made in infrastructure and new services for customers: a new trade fair app, a new matchmaking tool and a new online order system for exhibitors. For the first time, a wayfinding tool to improve navigation on the fairgrounds will be available. The online ticket shop opens in September 2019 at www.drupa.com
