drupa 2020 dates brought forward by one week

The dates of the 2020 edition of drupa have been brought forward to Tuesday, June 16 to Friday, June 26.

This was agreed by the drupa Committee and Messe Düsseldorf at its meeting on February 15.

The reason for this decision was because in some European countries, the summer holidays would have already started during the initially planned dates (June 23 to July 3). By changing the dates Messe Düsseldorf is responding to requests voiced by both exhibitors and visitors alike.

Explaining the move Werner Dornscheidt, president and CEO of Messe Düsseldorf, said: “When we decided to stick to the four-year cycle of drupa in consultation with the leading representatives of the industry during drupa 2016, the majority of holiday dates had not been published yet.

“Now we are really pleased that we can offer this solution although there is hardly any room for manoeuvre in the packed trade fair year of 2020. The fact that we agreed on a more compact stand construction period also contributes to holding the entire trade fair in June. And we are delighted to be able to act in our customers’ interest by kicking off one week earlier than originally planned.”
