CHICAGO, IL | drupa, the print media trade fair, will maintain its Olympic four-year cycle, a decision made by the 20-member drupa committee at its constitutive session held November 2, 2012. The drupa committee also decided to shorten the length of the trade fair to eleven days. The new show dates are May 31–June 10, 2016, in Düsseldorf, Germany.
“Visitor structure at drupa has changed,” says Werner Matthias Dornscheidt, CEO of Messe Düsseldorf. “While in the past large groups traveled to the trade fair–preferably at the weekend–drupa is now increasingly developing into a B2B fair with a high proportion of top decision-makers. At this year’s drupa, 78% of the international visitors and 52% of German visitors came from the top management; respectively this is 4% and 5% more than in 2008. This makes it unnecessary to hold drupa during two weekends. With eleven days–one weekend and nine working days–we perfectly cater to the needs of both supply and demand.”
Dipl.-Ing. Claus Bolza-Schünemann, CEO of Koenig & Bauer, was unanimously named chairman of drupa 2016. “I am delighted to assume the presidency at such an exciting time,” he says. “Our sector is developing at a rapid pace, and drupa 2016 will represent a key milestone on the path into the future.”
Dr. Jürgen Vutz, CEO of Windmöller & Hölscher, was confirmed as vice chairman and thus chairman of the Admissions Committee, and Rolf Schwarz, president of the German Printing and Media Industries Federation was named second vice chairman of drupa 2016.
