CIP4 and Messe Düsseldorf Announce ‘Free’ Two-Week Print Automation Conference
“The print industry has clearly proven that profitable printers are those who leverage technology, and JDF-enabled automation is the technological advantage you should be looking at,” said Mark Wilton of Kodak and CIP4’s Education and Marketing Officer. “Fully integrated JDF workflow demonstrations and a comprehensive JDF Experience Theatre schedule are just two of the features of this must-see pavilion. Attendees can stop by the JDF Experience and learn about key automation technologies that will not only cost justify their trip to drupa, but also make it a truly ‘profit fueling’ experience.”

Drupa is to the printing and paper industries what the Olympic Games are to athletes. Every four years, hundreds of thousands of experts come to Düsseldorf for drupa. It’s an unmissable opportunity for seeing all the latest technologies in media production and processing live in action. No other trade fair has such a vast, fundamental economic and technological impact as drupa. drupa düsseldorf is a constant reflection of the printing and paper sectors. With some 1,900 exhibitors spread across an exhibition area of some 174,000 square metres, 400,000 visitors expected and some 3,500 journalists from around the world, drupa 2008, to be staged from 29 May to 11 June, will be bigger than ever before.
