Rund 1.800 Aussteller aus über 50 Ländern stellen auf der drupa 2016, die weltweit führende Fachmesse für print und crossmedia solutions (31. Mai bis 10. Juni), die Vielseitigkeit und Innovationskraft ihrer Branche eindrucksvoll unter Beweis. Im Zentrum stehen vor allem Zukunfts- und Highlight-Themen wie packaging production, multichannel, 3D-printing, functional printing oder industrielle Druckanwendungen. | To the tune of round about 1,800 exhibitors from over 50 countries will give impressive proof of the versatility and innovative power of their sector from 31 May to 10 June at drupa 2016,  the world leading trade fair for print and crossmedia solutions. The focus is especially on next-generation and highlight themes such as packaging production, multichannel, 3D printing, functional printing and industrial applications.

“The current drupa, with its outstanding business deals and positive atmosphere really stands out and has made one thing perfectly clear: “Its USP are the production lines and are in full operation here,” explains Werner M. Dornscheidt, President & CEO of Messe Düsseldorf, and adds: “This is one of the reasons why drupa is such a beacon. Precisely this investment – this is what many representatives of the exhibitor community have assured us over the past few days here – they want to be 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.”

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 correct decisions. drupa 2016 is still on until 10 June. 1,837 exhibitors from 54 countries are currently showcasing their innovations and applications for print and cross-media solutions in Düsseldorf’s 19 exhibition halls.

Approx 200,000 visitors from 183 countries have visited the world’s biggest and most important trade fair in the print and media industry since day one of the event. And the percentage of visitors from throughout the world has also been extremely high so far: 78% have come from abroad.
