drupa innovation park to Feature Smart Solutions for the Entire Media IndustryFebruary 27, 2012
Visitors to the drupa can gather information on trendsetting technologies in the dip, whereas the neighboring drupa cube provides them with the accompanying content and business solutions. This concept of content, technology and business is one of the primary reasons why the trade fair debut of digi:media in April 2011 was so successful and digi:media is the driving force behind both dip and cube at the drupa 2012. Next year digi:media will again be taking place as an independent trade fair in Düsseldorf (April 11-13, 2013).
After 2004 and 2008, what makes the dip so special again this time? The drupa attendees are right to expect the very latest innovations and ideas for the markets of tomorrow when they visit the world’s leading trade fair for the printing and media industry. This is exactly what the drupa innovation park offers in concentrated form with its nine theme parks all located in one hall.
“The themes highlighted in the dip are right up to date and geared to current market activities and developments in the printing and media industry. The dip offers key topics vital for media production in both the present and the future and has established itself as a lively marketplace where print and publishing professionals exchange information,” explains drupa Director Manuel Mataré.
