Second drupa preview on 17 November

On 17 November, new lectures and teaser videos will go online on the digital platform drupa preview. International speakers such as Jack Stratten, Fons Put, and Deborah Corn will present trending topics of the industry and give visitors the opportunity to interact with them by asking questions during the live web sessions. Additional input is provided by the conference area with short presentations about the special forums at drupa. Speakers such as Achim Halpaap or Michael Gale provide impulses for the future of the printing industry.

Interested participants can register free of charge for the new live web sessions at drupa preview via the link https://preview.drupa.com/17Nov2020. Here, industry-relevant topics such as inkjet, packaging trends, and additive technologies will be discussed. Strategic advisor Kristin Kain will also take part again together with Marco Kersch from the Bertelsmann Group addressing the question of how print can survive in a digital world.

In addition to stimulating input from the exhibiton and conference areas, the matchmaking options will continue to be available. On the networking plaza, the drupa matchmaking brings visitors and exhibitors together – by entering special areas of interest and using extensive filter functions, it finds contacts to potential interested parties or suppliers. After making an appointment, personal meetings can be held in a virtual room via audio or video call.

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.
