Drupa will continue its proven 4-year cycle and take place again in Düsseldorf, Germany from June 23 -July 3, 2020. The decision to keep the show on a 4-year cycle is a change from Drupa’s previous announcement of bumping the show so that it occurs every three years.
“The current Drupa, with its outstanding business deals and positive atmosphere has made one thing perfectly clear: its unique feature are the production lines which are in full operation here,” states Werner M. Dornscheidt, president & CEO of Messe Düsseldorf. “This is one of the reasons why Drupa is so exceptional. Precisely this investment – this is what many exhibitors have assured us over the past few days here – is what they want to accomplish at and with Drupa in the future, their No. 1 international industry platform. Therefore, in the interest of our customers and international markets, Drupa will stick to its 4-year cycle.”
The re-positioning of drupa 2016, its focus on future topics as well as the shorter duration of 11 days have all proven to be good decisions.
