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

The Drupa 2024 is expected to focus on future and cross-industry technologies, bringing topics such as circular economy, automation, print/finishing 4.0, Artificial Intelligence, the platform economy and connectivity set to play a central role in the conference agenda and at the special forums.

In addition, Drupa 2024 will present itself with 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 digital technology and is synonymous with dynamism, motion and especially with water as the most important resource on our planet,” explained Sabine Geldermann, director print technologies at Messe Düsseldorf. “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. 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,” added Geldermann.

Messe Dusseldorf’s commitment to sustainability is reflected in the new exhibitor brochure, which it said, used technology and environment-friendly resources and produced them in a sustainable and climate-neutral way. The digital version can also be downloaded at
