drupa 2012 draws a positive interim conclusion


-marking strong interest from the ASEAN region

Prior to the registration deadline (Oct 31, 2010) for drupa 2012, Messe Düsseldorf – as organiser of the world’s largest trade fair for the print and media industry – draws a positive interim conclusion.

“Fortunately the changes in the industry are not reflected in the registration behaviour of the international supplier industry to the print and media industry. The global players are counting more than ever on drupa – some of them have even booked more exhibition space than for the last event. In addition, there is a significant increase in demand from the ASEAN region,” stated drupa director Manuel Mataré, summarizing the results so far, adding “drupa 2012 could sound the bell for a trend reversal and with that once again prove its global importance as a leading trade fair and trendsetter in the publishing industry.”

The structuring of the nineteen exhibition halls according to the individual industry focal points will begin early next year after analysis of all registrations. Exhibitor approval will then take place in August 2011. Simultaneously the professional supporting programme with its cornerstones drupa innovation park, drupacube, highlights tours and compass sessions will be developed in collaboration with the cooperation partners. Worldwide visitor promotion will begin in the summer of 2011.
