“The current drupa, with its outstanding business deals and positive atmosphere has made one thing perfectly clear: Its unique feature are the production lines which are in full operation here. This is one of the reasons why drupa is so exceptional. Precisely this investment – this is what many exhibitors have assured us over the past few days here – is what they want to accomplish at and with drupa in the future, their No. 1 international industry platform. Therefore in the interest of our customers and international markets, drupa will stick to its 4-year cycle,” explains Werner M. Dornscheidt, president/CEO of Messe Düsseldorf.
The re-positioning of drupa 2016, its focus on future topics as well as the shorter duration of eleven days have all proven to be good decisions. drupa 2016 is still going on until Friday, June 10, with 1,837 exhibitors from 54 countries showcasing their innovations and applications for print and cross-media solutions in the Düsseldorf Fairgrounds’ 19 exhibition halls.
To date, about 200,000 visitors from 183 countries have attended drupa 2016. The participation of visitors from around the world has been very high so far: 78% came from countries other than Germany.
