Organiser Messe Düsseldorf said that companies wanting to present their innovations at the event have until 31 October 2022 to register, at www.drupa.com.

Messe Düsseldorf managing director Erhard Wienkamp said: “Drupa is the global meeting place for the industry and stands for innovations and trends. Here we will see what impact the mega trends sustainability and digitalisation will have on processes, products, business models and the future of a constantly evolving industry.”

Sabine Geldermann, director of print technologies at Messe Düsseldorf, added there is also a new, dynamic look and feel for the start of exhibitor applications.

“The new motion design of our key visual combines classic graphic design with state-of-the-art digital technology and is synonymous with dynamism, motion and especially with water as the most important resource on our planet.

“It also visualises the top themes digitalisation and sustainability which drive the print and packaging industries, confront them with new challenges but also offer excellent opportunities. International faces represent the target group of Drupa which is looking forward to networking in a fascinating atmosphere characterised by diversity.

“The organic structures stand for aesthetics, design and the beauty of nature. The new claim ‘we create the future’ underscores the clear commitment of the community to jointly and proactively participate in the continuous development and design of the sector. And it represents thought leaders as well as high-quality knowledge transfer.”

Messe Düsseldorf said the new exhibitor brochure has been produced in a sustainable and climate-neutral way and that the digital version can be downloaded at the Drupa website.

Drupa 2024 will showcase new innovations from across the industry, with a special focus on future and cross-industry technologies. Topics such as circular economy, automation, print/finishing 4.0, artificial intelligence, the platform economy, and connectivity are therefore expected to play a central role in the conference agenda.

The last in-person Drupa show was in 2016, with digital event Virtual.Drupa taking place last year after the physical event was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
