PI: What is the "drupartnerguide"?
TEICHMANN: The "drupartnerguide" is an information brochure that will provide guests with information on some 50 restaurants in "drupacity" Düsseldorf. All Drupa partner restaurants will be recognizable by their red Drupa flags and banners. They will welcome guests with English-speaking staff or at least an English menu and will have a token surprise in store for every Drupa visitor.
For visitors who want to pick up a souvenir of Düsseldorf, the "drupartnerguide" recommends some 50 shops and stores for after-work shopping in the city. These merchants, too, will have bilingual sales staff and will be easy to recognize by their Drupa decorations. Many stores will offer special discounts exclusively for Drupa guests.
