Drupa, a popular trade fair for printing technologies held once every four years in Germany, has revised its dates for the 2020 edition of the show. Originally scheduled from June 23 to July 3, 2020, in Düsseldorf, Germany, the show will now be held from June 16 to June 26.

“When we decided to stick to the four-year cycle of Drupa in consultation with the leading representatives of the industry during Drupa 2016, the majority of holiday dates had not been published yet,” says  Werner Dornscheidt, president and CEO of Messe Düsseldorf. “Now we are really pleased that we can offer this solution although there is hardly any room for maneuver in the packed trade fair year of 2020. The fact that we agreed on a more compact stand construction period also contributes to staging the entire trade fair in June. And we are delighted to be able to act in our customers’ interest by starting one week earlier than originally planned.”
