The exceptional drupa Dusseldorf runs once every four years, serving as a springboard for forward-thinking design and innovative applications across the production chain. Unfortunately, the coronavirus pandemic has disrupted the regular event schedule, resulting in the postponement of the next in-person edition of drupa until 2024. In the meantime, the event organisers are preparing virtual.drupa - an online platform that will give exhibitors and visitors the opportunity to maintain valuable communications within the industry. The virtual.drupa programme will run between 20 - 23 April 2021.
Professionals taking part in drupa 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.
Held once in 4 years, drupa is the one-stop platform for the print sector. The next edition of the fair is drupa 2024. It will be staged at Messe Dusseldorf on 28 May - 7 June 2024. In the meantime, the virtual.drupa format, running between 20 - 23 April 2021, will help the industry stay connected.
Over 1800 companies from 54 countries displayed their innovations during the previous edition of drupa. They were joined by more than 1800 journalists from 73 countries and 260,000 visitors from 183 countries. Given these results, drupa 2024 is awaited with high expectations.
