In exactly 365 days from today, drupa 2020 will kick off at 10.00 am. The no. 1 for printing technologies will once again prove its position as the world's leading trade fair for the industry, as the current booking status already exceeds figures for the same period in 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. At the 2020 edition, we are currently expecting 33% of new exhibitors along the entire value-chain and various cross-cutting technologies.
The motto for the 11-day event reads: embrace the future; a prime event focusing on education, engagement and entertainment in a fascinating and inspiring atmosphere.
International key players confirm that they explicitly adapt their technological innovations 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 second-to-none setting for networking and making excellent new business contacts
drupa 2020 will be accompanied by a high-calibre line-up of renowned, international speakers: our special forums drupa cube, drupa dna, touchpoint packaging and touchpoint 3D fab+print will provide high-quality knowledge transfer and inspiration.
In 365 days from now Düsseldorf will again become drupacity. Together with restaurateurs, hotels and retailers an impressive hospitality concept will be implemented, guaranteed to strike a perfect balance between high-octane trade show days and downtown entertainment.
Commenting on this Sabine Geldermann, Director drupa & Global Head Print Technologies, said: “Messe Düsseldorf looks forward to welcoming exhibitors and visitors, to the drupa Spirit, to innovative power and dynamics for the market, to the unique charisma that only drupa – no. 1 for printing technologies – offers. We look forward to a unique, successful and unforgettable experience.”
In addition to investing in the positioning of drupa we also invest in an updated infrastructure and new services for our customers: A new trade fair app, a new matchmaking tool, a new online order system for exhibitors compared to drupa 2016 will provide everyone the opportunity to optimise presence at drupa. For the first time a wayfinding tool to improve navigation on the exhibition grounds will be available. This way both exhibitors and visitors can definitely plan their days at the trade fair more efficiently and comfortably.
