drupa to Continue Its Four-year Cycle

CHICAGO, IL | Messe Düsseldorf reports that drupa will stick to its four-year cycle and will be held again in Düsseldorf June 23–July 3, 2020. The organizer says that, with this decision, it 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,” says Werner M. Dornscheidt, president and CEO of Messe Düsseldorf. “This is one of the reasons why drupa is such a beacon. …[And] 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 four-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, says Messe Düsseldorf. drupa 2016 is still on until 10 June, with 1,837 exhibitors from 54 countries currently showcasing their innovations and applications for print and cross-media solutions in Düsseldorf’s 19 exhibition halls.

Approximately 200,000 visitors from 183 countries have visited the trade fair since day one of the event. And the percentage of visitors from throughout the world reportedly has been very high so far: 78% have come from abroad.
