As its 2016 show came to a close earlier this month, drupa reported a preliminary attendance count of 260,000 hailing from 188 countries – down slightly from the 314,000 at the 2012 show, though with a higher number of attendees per day. (The 2016 show was 11 days, compared to 14 days four years ago.) More than 1837 exhibitors filled 19 halls at the Messe Düsseldorf exhibition center.

The organizers reported widespread interest in a number of fledgling initiatives like the drupa cube seminar area, drupa innovation park, 3D fab + print zone, and special areas dedicated to packaging and printed electronics, all technologies with noticeably more exhibitors and attendee traffic than at the previous drupa. A post-show release from Messe Düsseldorf announced that “one in two drupa visitors were interested in the various special shows and lectures.”

“The print industry is constantly reinventing itself and offers a wealth of high-potential facets,” adds Claus Bolza-Schünemann, chairman of the drupa committee and of the board at Koenig & Bauer.

Drupa also recently announced the details for its 2020 edition.
