drupa 2024 Draws Curtains, Exceeds All Expectations

Surpassing all expectations, drupa 2024, dubbed the “Olympics of printing technology”, concluded on a high, never imagined in its long history. The 11-day trade show demonstrated the progress of an entire sector so impressively, giving proof of the operational excellence of the industry.

1,643 exhibitors from 52 nations presented an outstanding showcase of innovations in the sprawling Düsseldorf exhibition halls and thrilled the trade visitors with unforgettable performances.

After Europe, Asia was the most strongly represented region with 22%.  Asia as well as Latin America and the MENA region are markets with great growth potential, which was reflected in the significant increase in the exhibitors’ presence. Many key players, including BOBST, Canon, Fujifilm, Heidelberger Druckmaschinen, HP, Horizon, Koenig & Bauer, Komori, Konica Minolta, Kurz, and Landa, reported having signed contracts that significantly exceeded expectations.

Under the motto “we create the future”, drupa’s 18 halls were abuzz with ground-breaking innovations and technologies, and featured over 300 speakers who represented the crème-de-la-crème of the industry. The major highlight of drupa 2024 were the five special forums – drupa cube, drupa touchpoint sustainability, drupa touchpoint packaging, drupa next age (dna), and drupa touchpoint textiles – that turned into robust platforms in decision-making and discussing the latest opportunities.
