EFI out of Drupa 21

EFI’s withdrawal is another blow for Drupa which follows a slew of major exhibitors already opting out of the event in the recent weeks.

“Our company has a long, positive history with drupa, as do I personally, having also run two companies that have been major drupa exhibitors in the past,” said Jeff Jacobson, chairman and CEO, EFI. “The show has always represented some of the best of what can be accomplished at an in-person event for the global print industry.”

“But, with the limited amount of knowledge anyone can have right now about what conditions will be for public gatherings early next year, withdrawing from drupa 2021 is an unfortunate albeit prudent decision,” Jacobson added. “All of us at EFI look forward to future drupa events beyond 2021 – and to other industry trade shows – once the world has clearly moved past the current pandemic.”

EFI recently announced EFI Engage – a virtual event for customers being held in place of their annual EFI Connect users conference. EFI Engage will feature training, education, new technology news and partner developments for EFI customers from January 25 to February 5 2021.
