The congress trade fair PRINT & DIGITAL CONVENTION (PDC), which was successfully positioned by the Fachverband Medienproduktion (f:mp.) in cooperation with Messe Düsseldorf, enters the next round. The organizers of PDC are planning the next staging for June 2021 considering an expected positive development of the pandemic.

The last edition of drupa preview in 2020 once again provided an opportunity for intensive knowledge transfer in the print community. Presentations and live web sessions by industry experts and partner associations focused on the future and current global trends and challenges. But also applications and uses in the field of additive manufacturing processes and packaging printing were addressed. Overall, 4.301 registered participants took advantage of the new platform.

FESPA has postponed its 2021 Global Print Expo and the co-located European Sign Expo from March until October 2021, while remaining at the same venue, the RAI exhibition centre in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Today, December 8, drupa invites you to the third edition of drupa preview days. To facilitate networking and the need for knowledge transfer in the community, industry experts and partner associations will present future topics in live web sessions and panel discussions. A global view of current changes in the print industry will be discussed in the third edition of preview days, as will applications and applications in the field of additive manufacturing solutions and packaging printing. The growing importance of sustainability will be addressed in a panel discussion and videos in the Conference Area.

Following close consultation with exhibitors and partners, the 2021 edition of drupa, the world’s leading trade fair for Printing Technologies, will be cancelled due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. The next event will take place as scheduled from 28 May to 7 June 2024. To maintain the momentum until then, the organisers will be holding a four-day digital event titled ‘virtual.drupa’, to take place from 20 to 23 April 2021 during the time frame drupa was originally scheduled for.

On November 17, new lectures and teaser videos will go online on the digital platform drupa preview. International speakers such as Jack Stratten, Fons Put or Deborah Corn will present trending topics of the industry and give visitors the opportunity to interact with them by asking questions during the live web sessions. Additional input is provided by the Conference Area with short presentations about the special forums at drupa. Speakers such as Achim Halpaap or Michael Gale provide impulses for the future of the printing industry.

The digital platform drupa preview was opened on 27 October. Over 1.900 interested visitors took part in panel discussions and live web sessions as spectators, received valuable input on current issues via video keynote speeches and virtually connected with exhibitors and industry players. The three areas ‘Exhibition Space’, ‘Conference Area’ and ‘Networking Plaza’ reflect drupa’s cornerstones digitally, bridging communication needs between now and the next live event.

The new digital platform drupa preview will be opened on 27. October, 2020 at 10:00 am (Central European time). A panel discussion with Project Director Print Technologies Sabine Geldermann, Dr. Markus Heering, Managing Director of the German Printing and Paper Technology Association (VDMA) and Dr. Christian Plenge, Executive Director Digital at Messe Düsseldorf, will present the new platform and address the current situation in the industry. Afterwards, companies and speakers will present important topics in live web sessions.

On October 16th 2020, the 8th All in Print China successfully concluded at Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC). With the support from exhibitors, visitors, associations, media partners and all other industry colleagues, All in Print China 2020 presented the latest innovations and gave strong confidence to the international printing industry.

More focused, more sustainable and, above all, safe: PSI, PromoTex Expo and viscom will be very special shows in 2021. The most important thing, however, is that, as matters stand, they will indeed be taking place. After a year’s social distancing, the three trade shows will bring the promotional product, textile and finishing industries back together again under one roof from 12th – 14th January 2021. This will not only provide an opportunity to meet up again at long last, the shows also signal the start of a long-awaited new financial year.

FESPA has launched the promotional campaign for its March 2021 event, scheduled to take place at the RAI exhibition centre in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, from 9 to 12 March 2021.

The journey to Roto4All on October 23rd in Florence begins with important news. The event on rotogravure will take place with a live audience, in total safety and in compliance with all anti-Covid protocols; given the reduced seating numbers and with the big success achieved by the launching webinar of April 28 (with 560 attendees, a third of which international), the Italian Rotogravure Group by Acimga decided to stream Roto4All globally, with simultaneous translation in English for the international audiences.

Out of an abundance of caution for employees, customers, prospects and partners, Electronics For Imaging, Inc. has canceled its planned exhibit at the drupa 2021 tradeshow taking place in Dusseldorf, Germany, next April.

The decision was made on Friday, September 18 to postpone Printwear & Promotion LIVE! 2021 from the scheduled dates of Sunday, February 21 to Monday, February 23, until later in the year.

FESPA has today announced that FESPA Mexico 2020 will be postponed to 23 – 25 September 2021. The exhibition, which was originally scheduled to take place from 26 – 28 November 2020, will again be hosted at the Centro Citibanamex in Mexico City.

Tarsus Group, organiser of Labelexpo Europe, is planning to deliver its most ambitious show to date in a year from now, bringing the global industry back together after the challenges faced from the COVID-19 pandemic.

PRINTING United Digital Experience, taking place online Oct. 26 – Nov. 12, offers education for all throughout the three-week event. Renowned experts will present on the latest topics and trends, areas of opportunities, and research to industry verticals across the board – all at no cost.

Tarsus Group, organizer of Labelexpo India 2020 and Brand Print India 2020, has today confirmed that the upcoming editions of the co-located shows, due to take place at India Expo Centre, Greater Noida, Delhi NCR from 2 – 5 December, have been postponed in light of ongoing concerns over coronavirus/COVID-19.

Mack Brooks Exhibitions has today announced the cancellation of InPrint Milan, which was scheduled to be held at Fieramilano in Italy from 22 – 24 October 2020, in light of the ongoing Covid-19 crisis globally.

PRINTING United Digital Experience today announces that more than 20 major global product launches are scheduled to take place over the 14 days of the jam-packed online event which runs Oct. 26 – Nov. 12. Representing market segments throughout the industry, the PRINTING United Digital Experience will offer education, insight, and new technology briefings for everyone across all job functions, at no cost. The schedule detailing each day of the Digital Experience is now available, below. The countdown to registration is on!

drupa extends its digital offering: starting in October the online platform drupa preview will offer exhibitors and visitors an additional channel for touching base with the sector, discussing trending themes and presenting product portfolios. The portal will consist of the content formats “Conference”, “Exhibition” as well as “Networking” and will bring the community together. The drupa preview thus enables continuous exchange of information until the hybrid trade fair in April 2021, which will combine the on-site event with additional digital content.
