Neu-Isenburg, Germany, April 1, 2021 – DuPont will be participating as a Gold Event Partner in the virtual drupa show from April 20th to 24th.

DuPont will present the latest innovations for the Cyrel Solutions flexographic systems and launch new flexo plate and platemaking equipment offerings. Artistri Digital Inks will present its large portfolio of inkjet inks for commercial, packaging, and textile applications in the showroom and during interactive web sessions.

Sam Ponzo, Vice President, DuPont Industrial Solutions, has confirmed DuPont’s commitment to the virtual show, “As a key supplier to the graphic industry, DuPont has always enjoyed the personal interaction with customers and the industry at drupa. Furthermore, the exhibition served as a platform to introduce the latest technology developments. This time, drupa will be all virtual and we will miss meeting in one place and interacting in person with our industry peers and colleagues, but this does not change our focus. We are happy to be part of the first virtual drupa ever and interact with our customers and colleagues virtually.”

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.
