DRUPA is the major and unique source of knowledge, one can gather as much knowledge not only for the present but for future technologies and innovations. DRUPA is the platform for networking with ‘people-in-print’ from across the globe, to understand their challenges in printing. Even the inventors and manufacturers wait for drupa to showcase their innovations and technologies for the future. I always equate DRUPA with Kumbh Mela, a major pilgrimage and considered to be the world’s largest festival in India. As already said, if you wish to taste the holy nectar of latest knowledge, and future technologies DRUPA is the unique place in this world."

There is a hunger for the beacon events, such as drupa, a recognition that real events are essential for a satisfying and complete human experience. Let’s make sure we share it with the youth of our industry and secure its future. Roll on drupa 2024."Robert McClements
As the leading UK Print Trade Association, we’re greatly looking forwards to supporting our members at drupa24, and, as an organisation, can hardly wait to be there, to gain that boost of energy and insight that it always brings, and to make new friends and catch up with existing ones."Charles Jarrold
The current situation will not change the need for information and knowledge exchange. On the contrary. The pandemic situation has in many cases accelerated trends that were already there before. For instance, there are many great tools available now for product presentation and promotion that easily visualize and explain exactly the setup you want. That will create a shift for trade fairs. People will visit fairs much more prepared and informed in advance as they can find online all relevant info in a comfortable way. At Xeikon we notice that the past, almost, 2 years, the relationships with our prospects and customers have become even more important. Our focus for a trade fair may shift more to emphasize that aspect and really see it as a VIP opportunity to physically meet up with the industry."Filip Weymans
“drupa is the heartbeat of our industry. It gives us, as one of the major exhibitors, a world of opportunity to present and celebrate the trend universes of print to a global audience. Print will always be vital in cross-channel communications and, with the continuing evolution of technologies, it has extended way beyond graphical and packaging applications.
Working in a truly collaborative approach with customers and other partners, we can’t wait to meet people again in Düsseldorf. drupa is where we renew friendships and develop new, lasting business relationships. As a global leader in digital transformation and sustainability solutions, we help customers to ignite the art of rethinking what’s possible and bring ideas to life. Opportunities are everywhere at drupa.”Olaf Lorenz
"We know that drupa has always been the benchmark reference for innovation in the graphic arts industry, not only observing, but also driving the pulse of the industry.
For many years now, drupa has provided the perfect forum for us to showcase our next-generation technology developments for the packaging industry and share our latest integrated software and hardware releases.
I’m convinced the industry would not be where it is today without the momentum of the four-yearly global industry gathering that is drupa."

"drupa is the most important trade fair for the graphic arts industry. All decision-makers, innovators, but also suppliers and converters of the most advanced technologies are meeting here, presenting their solutions and admiring new trends - no market participant can miss this date, and no one would want to. We are already looking forward to showcasing our innovative solutions - especially in the area of sustainability in 2024. As a family business, this topic is very important to KURZ. We have invested a lot of time and resources to ensure that the transfer process in finishing is more environmentally friendly and to develop high-quality but also recyclable decorations. This has enabled us to achieve a major progress towards the circular economy - an achievement that can contribute to the progress of the entire industry and which we would like to bring further to the market within the scope of drupa 2024."
