Despite the red lanyards showgoers have been wearing at drupa 2016 that say "See you at drupa 2019," the largest print show on earth will maintain its four-year cycle, not the three-year cycle that Messe Düsseldorf had previously announced. As such, the next drupa will be held on the fairgrounds here from Tuesday, June 23, to Friday, July 3, 2020.

As part of Printing Industries Alliance's "drupa Experience! a Private Turn-Key VIP Tour" from June 1-6, at drupa 2016 in Düsseldorf, Germany, attendees will receive guided and scheduled Executive VIP briefings at key drupa exhibits, deluxe hotel accommodations at the Sheraton Düsseldorf Hotel, five-day show credentials and catalog, public transportation to and from the show, and many other benefits.

On March 1, 2011, KBA and RR Donnelley announced they had entered a collaborative alliance to develop new inkjet printing systems. Just over 14 months later, the product of this alliance—the RotaJET 76—has been received with keen interest at drupa 2012.

Several pavilions on the show floor highlight the industry’s hottest product categories. Whether your interest lies in RFID, wide-format technologies, mailing and fulfillment, or another area of graphic communications, you’re sure to find a show floor feature tailored to your interests.
