Organisers of drupa 2016, the trade fair for print and crossmedia solutions, exceeded all expectations.
Some 260,000 visitors from 188 countries travelled to Düsseldorf to learn about technology innovations, further developments and new business lines.
While, more than 1,800 exhibitors from 54 countries unanimously reported excellent business deals, extremely promising contacts and a positive spirit for the print industry.
Claus Bolza-Schünemann, chairman of the drupa committee and chairman of the doard at Koenig & Bauer AG, said: “The print industry is constantly reinventing itself and offers a wealth of high-potential facets. And this is precisely what drupa 2016 has very impressively proven. We were able to experience a highly innovative industry here in the 19 exhibition halls, one that has succeeded in moving out of the valley of tears and grasping the future by the neck.”
drupa opened on May 31 and closed its doors today. It will next take place in 2020 from June 23 to July 2.
