41 Indian Companies Gear Up For Drupa 2016

Drupa 2016 is just around the corner and 41 Indian companies have confirmed their presence at the exhibition happening at Dusseldorf, Germany, commencing from 31st May.

Drupa has always been the touchstone of technology advancement for Indian converters and over the years, print firm owners have made it a ritual to visit Drupa to decide their next big investment.

The exhibitors include from machine manufactures, packagers, die-makers, to paper mills and everyone in between.

In Drupa 2012, Indian visitors were the maximum from a single country (15,000), second only to the host country, Germany (123,000).

This year, there will be a total of 1,650 exhibitors from more than 50 countries. The exhibition will be spread in a 1,50,200 sq/m area, comprising 19 halls. Among them, HP will have an entire hall by itself.

Traditionally, Drupa has been organised in a four-year cycle. This will change from this year onwards. From now on, the event will take place in a three-year cycle. Thus, after 2016, the next three editions of Drupa will be in 2019, 2022 and 2025.

Again, Drupa is a portmanteau word for two German words, Drucken and Papier, meaning, printing and paper. Moving ahead with the current trends, from this year, Drupa will stand for Digitisation, Rapid manufacturing, Utilities, Packaging, and Applications. The repositioned Drupa will now focus on application growth and future technology – functional printing, interactive packaging and utility applications, which include digital inkjet printing on ceramics and laminate flooring.
