An exceptional edition of drupa Dusseldorf will run on 20 - 28 April 2021. The international trade fair runs once every four years, serving as a springboard for forward-thinking design and innovative applications across the production chain. In the case of drupa 2021 an extra year is added, as the 2020 event was postponed in light of the developments concerning the worldwide spread of COVID-19. Shortened from 11 to 9 days, drupa will respond to the need for a more efficient and targeted showcase.

Professionals taking part in drupa 2021 can expect a 360-degree overview of the European printing and media industry. Attending offers insight on the processes forming on a large market level as well as ample opportunities to partner with powerful buyers. The product mix has everything from large format printers, media production and paper products to digital printing and graphic design. The introduction of a new show within drupa's frame - Touchpoint textile - enriches the possibilities for cross-sector collaboration.
