Have you ever heard of or wondered what drupa is all about?

From May 31st until June 10th, in Dusseldorf Germany, the largest printing exhibition in the world takes centre stage.

Held every three years (4 years in the past) by Messe Dusseldorf, it is the main event for the print and media industries.

The exhibition is also a confidence barometer for the entire print media industry, its markets, clients and suppliers.

The last staging of drupa in 2012 welcomed over 314,000 visitors from 130 countries.

The very future of print and its applications will be showcased at drupa, including commercial printing, functional and industrial printing, packaging, multichannel, 3D printing and green printing.

We will be paying the exhibition a visit and will be keeping a close eye on the technologies available to us now, and also those still being developed.
