Messe Düsseldorf North America will again organize a U.S. Pavilion, co-sponsored by NPES, The Association for Suppliers of Printing, Publishing and Converting Technologies. The U.S. Pavilion provides a cost-effective means for U.S. companies to enter into or to expand their business in the lucrative overseas marketplace. The all-inclusive pavilion turnkey rental package includes a fully furnished booth, access to an attractive lounge area with daily snack and beverage service and the on-site service of a project manager, hostesses and roaming interpreters. In addition, U.S. Commercial Service staff will be on hand in the U.S. Pavilion to assist with export and licensing questions. Please contact Messe Düsseldorf North America at (312) 781-5180 to reserve exhibit space within the U.S. Pavilion.
The drupa 2016 exhibit categories were revised and updated and are now divided into six main segments (formerly seven): pre-press/print; pre-media/multichannel; post press/converting/package printing; future technologies; materials; and equipment/ services/infrastructure.
When last held in 2012, about 314,000 visitors from 130 nations took part in drupa. With more than 190,000 visitors from counties other than Germany, the international focus of drupa was at a very high level. The second largest visitor nation after Germany (123,000 visitors) was India (some 15,000 attendees), followed by Belgium, France, the Netherlands, Great Britain, the U.S., Switzerland and Italy. An increase of visitors from South and Central America - especially from Brazil - was also recorded.
