Virtual.drupa: Exhibition space

The exhibition space at virtual.Drupa reflects the diverse technologies and applications along the entire value chain of the print & packaging industry and gives visitors a comprehensive overview of the exhibiting companies’ product portfolios and innovations. In addition, explanatory videos and live web sessions provide additional details and information about the exhibited products and services.

Find relevant exhibitors and products in the exhibition space

Visitors can use the navigation in the exhibition space to quickly find the exhibitors they are interested in. In addition to direct entry of the company name, the search can be filtered by product category or country, for example, to obtain an accurate and relevant selection of exhibitors.

The individual exhibitor profile provides information on the company, contact persons, products, services, innovations, and presentation formats. At this point, direct contact can be made with the exhibitor via a digital business card or via matchmaking.

Insights and interaction in live web sessions

Exhibitors have the opportunity to interact with the community in live web sessions and present their agenda on relevant content to a broad audience. Visitors can get an up-to-date overview of the various presentations in the event database to filter by event slots or topics, for instance. Exciting content can be expected, such as the potential of digital printing applications and automated workflows, innovations in flexo and inkjet printing, and sustainable packaging solutions. 

The virtual.drupa event partners will also contribute to this: Leonhard Kurz, DuPont de Nemours, EFI, Kodak, Komori, BlueCrest, CloudLab, Fujifilm, Hybrid Software, Koenig & Bauer, Mimaki, OQChemicals, and Xeikon. All Live Web Sessions will also be available later on-demand in a video library to make the content accessible to visitors who cannot attend live due to time differences.

Exhibitors provide outlooks on industry-relevant topics

Visitors already have the opportunity to take a look at the current exhibitor profiles and orient themselves for virtual.drupa. Together, the companies represent the diversity of the industry in their online showrooms and web sessions.

DuPont will present the latest innovations for the Cyrel solutions flexographic systems and Artistri Digital Inks for textile and industrial applications, in the online showroom and during interactive Live Web Sessions,” reports Sam Ponzo, vice president, Industrial Solutions at DuPont de Nemours.

“Fujifilm will present new innovative products in both conventional and digital processes,” reveals Hiroaki Shimosaka, General Manager Graphic Systems Business Div. at Fujifilm Corporation. “In addition, with our innovative products, we demonstrate our commitment to the graphic arts industry and prove that we are a long-standing partner for our global customers.”

And Filip Weymans, vice president of marketing at Xeikon, shares: “We will be demonstrating mainly applications that involve digital print manufacturing – not just solutions for digital printing but solutions that fit in a manufacturing process and can be connected in a lot of other steps in a manufacturing process. That is how you achieve flexibility. That is how you address the questions and challenges that lie ahead of you and your business.”

Participants get a continuous overview of the development of the exhibitors and their presentation programs. The event currently has 170 exhibitors from 30 countries and 13 virtual.drupa event partners in the platinum, gold, and silver categories.

 

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.
