June 7, 2016  By PrintAction Staff

Despite an earlier decision made in 2015 to hold the world’s largest exhibition for the printing and imaging industry once every three years, drupa organizers Messe Düsseldorf announced today they are returning to the long-existing four-year cycle.

drupa, which is still under way until June 10, will be held again in Düsseldorf from June 23 to July 3, 2020. Messe Düsseldorf explains it is responding to the numerous demands voiced by exhibiting industry players.

The organization continued to state the re-positioning of drupa 2016, with a focus on future topics as well as the shorter duration of 11 days, have proven to be correct decisions.


drupa 2016 currently features 1,837 exhibitors from 54 countries in 19 exhibition halls. Approximately 200,000 visitors from 183 countries have visited the world’s biggest trade fair in the print and media industry since day one of the event, and 78 percent have come from abroad.
