The drupa, the world’s leading trade fair for print and cross-media solutions, will switch to a three-year cycle after 2016, when it runs from 31 May to 10 June. Therefore the next drupa shows will take place in May of 2019, 2022 and 2025. This decision was taken by the drupe committee at a recent meeting in Düsseldorf.

“The entire print process chain has changed radically because of the internet and digital technologies. New applications and solutions are developing and opening up new fields of business. At the same time, there is more focus on innovative technologies such as 3D printing, printed electronics and functional printing,” explains Claus Bolza-Schünemann, chairman of the drupa advisory board.

As a side-effect of this change, drupa will no longer collide with interpack 2020, the world’s most important trade fair for the packaging industry. “Those drupa exhibitors who specialize in packaging printing would have found 2020 an incredibly stressful year so the change will clearly benefit customers,” emphasizes Werner Matthias Dornscheidt, president and CEO of Messe Düsseldorf GmbH .
