Organisers announced that dates for drupa 2020 has been brought forward a week. drupa will now be held from 16 to 26 June 2020.
The initial dates were set for 23 June to 3 July 2020. The decision to bring forward the dates came after concerns that the original dates would clash with the European summer holiday period.
Werner Dornscheidt, President and CEO of Messe Düsseldorf, said of the move: “When we decided to stick to the 4-year cycle of drupa in consultation with the leading representatives of the industry during drupa 2016, the majority of holiday dates had not been published yet. Now we are really pleased that we can offer this solution although there is hardly any room for manoeuvre in the packed trade fair year of 2020."
