drupa 2020

In 360 days from today, drupa 2020 will kick off at 10.00 a.m. 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.
The 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 one of the industry’s must-attend events. The trade fair provides guidance, provides the 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-caliber line-up of renowned, international speakers. The special forums such as drupa cube, drupa dna, touchpoint packaging and touchpoint 3D fab+print will provide high-quality knowledge transfer and inspiration.
With drupa on, 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 and 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 such as a new trade fair app, a new matchmaking tool, a new online order system for exhibitors compared to drupa 2016 will provide everyone with the opportunity to optimize 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.”

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
