The drupa 2020 online ticket shop is now open at www.drupa.com. The exhibitor data base and interactive hall plan for the printing technology trade fair is also live on the website.
The database contains the profiles of all exhibitors, including the range of products and services as well as additional information. drupa will be held from June 16 – 26, 2020 at the fairgrounds in Düsseldorf, Germany.
“We want to give visitors the opportunity to plan their arrival, departure and stay in drupacity Düsseldorf at an early stage,” says drupa Director Sabine Geldermann. Tickets purchased online are cheaper compared to tickets bought on show site. All tickets include free use of public transportation within the Rhine-Ruhr (VRR) and Rein-Sieg (VRS) transportation network during drupa.
Attendees can start planning their visit in detail in October with the new, redesigned drupa App. Supported by an intelligent matchmaking tool, its algorithms are designed to analyze search queries and areas of interest and derive personalized suggestions for further exhibitors and visitors.
“This matchmaking function enables our visitors to quickly identify exactly those of the expected 1,800 international exhibitors they would like to contact at the trade fair,” says Sabine Geldermann. With the matchmaking tool, the user can contact exhibitors or other visitors and set up appointments before drupa starts.
With the constantly updated drupa News – integrating, for the first time, content from the trade fair’s newspaper drupa daily – the app provides visitors with access to updates on all aspects of the trade show. It also serves as a guide, enabling the user to plan an individually compiled program of the three touchpoints – touchpoint packaging, 3D fab+print, textile – as well as the forums drupa cube and dna.
“With the early opening of the drupa ticket shop and the free drupa app, we want to make trade fair planning as pleasant, intuitive and efficient as possible for our visitors. drupa 2020 offers such an impressive spectrum of accompanying events that effective time management, early matchmaking and optimized orientation – whether for the technical supporting program or in the exhibition halls – represent real added value,” says Geldermann.
