The Hunkeler Innovationdays will now be held from 21 to 24 February 2022 at the Lucerne Exhibition Centre (Switzerland). The international print industry event is focused on high-performance digital printing and finishing.

The Hunkeler Innovationdays planned for 22 to 25 February 2021 will be postponed by one year to 21 to 24 February 2022. The reason for this is the postponement of the trade fair events due to the spread of the coronavirus. Since drupa is now postponed to April 2021, an adjustment of the industry meeting in Lucerne is the logical consequence.

This decision was made in close cooperation with various printer and finishing exhibition partners. Before the numerous exhibitors have to deal with logistical and communicative activities, the announcement of the postponement is intended to enable all those affected to react in good time, reschedule and prepare themselves for the event date in February 2022.

Once again, the world’s digital paper processing elite will gather at the Lucerne/Switzerland Exhibition Centre. In its fourteenth edition, this internationally important industry meeting once again stands for many innovations and further developments in digital printing and finishing.

The Hunkeler Innovation Days have always been distinguished by an interdisciplinary concept. In a comparatively small space, all renowned manufacturers in the industry meet owners, managing directors, management and experts. This makes this international industry meeting unique worldwide. Visitors gain an insight into versatile scenarios with a high practical relevance.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Indian Printer and Publisher’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
