Why Your Visit Is Worth It

If you wish to create brand recognition in the upper echelons of your business sector and have a broader appeal internationally, Drupa is where you go to make a name for yourself. It’s a most respected platform, and you gain access to incredible resources. Let’s take a look at the scope:

  • 242,900 square metres of exhibition space dedicated;
  • 1,823 international exhibitors showcasing their very best;
  • 260,165 international trade visitors are expected to visit.

Industry Relevance

Drupa has had a long presence in the printing industry, as it’s been held ever since 1951 and runs on a four-yearly basis. This frequency works to the show’s advantage, as the main goal is to display innovations to its audience. Exhibitor booths cover the entire spectrum of products – large format printers, digital printing, folding equipment, graphic design, graphics software, laminating, media production, printing machines, printing paper and printing presses. You can see this dedication to forward-thinking in the event’s features like Drupa Hot Spots that showcase the next generation of solutions in printing and media. Another ambition is to completely reconfigure processes within all levels of the sectors through the dna - drupa next age feature.

Who Are You Going to Meet?

The most obvious answer is to expect to meet with professionals involved in printing and media, but that’s only part of the visitors. The exhibition sees interest from vertical markets that are not directly connected to packaging and printing but benefit from the products and services. We are talking about everything from consumer and luxury goods and cosmetics, to banking and security technology. Procurement is only one reason why visitors attend. Organisers share that more than half of the visitors come with a long-term investment intention. That’s good news to companies like VDMA Druck- und Papiertechnik, QuadTech, Epson Europe, CHILI publish, HP Graphics Solutions Business and BOBST. Most importantly – yours!
