Drupa 2020 to begin one week ahead of the previous schedule
17 Feb 2017
Rejig your travel itinerary for 2020, as the Drupa organisers have rescheduled the dates for the 2020 edition of Drupa, the world’s most important trade fair for printing technologies. Accordingly, Drupa 2020 will be held one week before the previously planned dates, from 16 June to 26 June 2020 instead of 23 June to 3 July 2020.
Drupa 2020 is from 16 June to 26 June
This was declared by the Drupa Committee and Messe Düsseldorf on 15 February 2017.
According to recent almanac, in most European countries, including Germany, summer holidays will already start during the initially planned dates (23 June to 3 July 2020). Thus, by changing the dates, Messe Düsseldorf responded to the requests voiced by exhibitors and visitors alike.
Explaining the move, Werner Dornscheidt, president and CEO of Messe Düsseldorf, said, “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. Therefore, the change of dates. The fact that we agreed on a more compact stand construction period also contributes to holding the entire trade fair in June. And we are delighted to be able to act in our customers’ interest by kicking off one week earlier than originally planned.”
