About the event
COVID-19 made it impossible to host drupa as a live event, but the trade show found its second wind as a digital event - "virtual.drupa", which ran in late April, 2021. If you’ve missed it the first time around, trade visitors can still access the rich digital catalog with presentations and talks.
The digital edition will keep the industry connected until the next face-to-face edition. Drupa 2024 has been confirmed to run as usual at Messe Dusseldorf. We don’t know much about the edition as it’s too early to tell and Messe Düsseldorf GmbH has yet to announce the dates. One thing is certain – the long wait will allow for the events industry to stabilize and return in full force.
Drupa opens the doors for exhibitors in the print and media industry to new markets all over the world. The international trade fair concerns itself with technological advancements and solutions within the entire value and as such presents itself as a natural networking hub. Messe Dusseldorf hosts Drupa once every four years and editions are usually scheduled for even years. Because editions are held so infrequently, organisers provide an incredible program that lasts for a total of eleven days. The trade fair can easily be considered the most important event for the print and media industry in Europe. Trends, innovations and product launches all find their way to the stages of Drupa and exhibitors have an excellent opportunity to grow their client list.
So what’s on display at Drupa? The product portfolio is one of the best out there and offers every category imaginable across the value chain. Categories include packaging production, equipment and processes, encapsulation industrial applications prepress, preprint, converting, packaging, materials, printed electronics, functional printing, packaging production, multichannel printing, green printing and 3D printing. Due to the varied applications of this technology, exhibitors can meet with buyer from a lot of industries. Consumer and luxury goods, cosmetics, banking and security technology are some of the biggest markets you gain access to. It’s important to note that Drupa is also open to the general public. Geographically, you have 68% of all visitors coming from Europe (Italy, France, the Netherlands, Belgium, the UK), but there’s also thousands coming from as far away as the USA and India.
Did You Know?
Drupa has had to undergo big changes in format due to the coronavirus pandemic with a digital edition, which ran in 2021. The inclusion of drupa.virtual kicked off a new era for the trade fair as it reached even more professional geographically and created digital infrastructure for the next edition. Innovation has always been part of the fair’s makeup and this shows through the special shows that readily take place during editions grouped together as DRUPA Hot Spots. One of the essential ones to attend is, of course, ‘dna - drupa next age’, which reveals and celebrates disruptive developments. It’s the stage for new brands, startups and prototypes.

In Frankfurt, we were very nice. The hotel is close to the fairground and the city center. Rooms are very nice, clean and neat.
Frankfurt is arranged. I hope we stay in touch, and maybe we will be back together with the accommodation
Great regards, Amela

Excellent service from Travel to Fairs Ltd for our last exhibition (IWA OUTDOOR CLASSICS2018) in Nuremberg, Germany.
Very competitive prices - the fact that you managed to offer us rooms when everything else was sold out speaks for itself!
We'll work with you again in the future.
Yes we are back from our trip and happy for you to pass on the below regarding Ashleys Gardens
We could walk from the venue to the Messe Dusseldorf exhibition centre which was a big advantage for us. So the location was key and a big tick.
The hotel is of course very old and the rooms are very small with no lift so up 2 flights of stairs with bags for everyone.
Restaurant is popular with the locals and often cannot fit you in for dinner and wont let you charge back to the rooms.
Staff are friendly and breakfast is good.
All the best.
Great service, great people…
I would kindly like to thank you for your services and the Hotel is great. I will await for comments from all of my colleagues once they arrive and will provide you feedback. Thank you again!
I will and have recommended your services.
