drupa provides crucial impulses for print, media, packaging production, and industrial applications – especially in the vertical markets as well. The world’s leading trade fair for printing technologies offers outstanding networking opportunities and potential for excellent business dealings. This is where innovations are brought into the market, new business models are developed, and new partnerships are formed.
touchpoint packaging covers the entire spectrum of packaging production, from design to new materials, from printing to converting, from amazing embellishments to security and track & trace features. The special forum, which received its much-acclaimed premiere at drupa 2016, will be realised in cooperation with the European Packaging Design Association (epda), Europe’s leading association of brand and packaging designers. A steering committee composed of well-known exhibitors such as Agfa, BOBST, Esko, Heidelberg, HP, Kurz and Siegwerk, as well as international brand owners Danone and Nestlé will contribute to a rich visitor experience. Touchpoint packaging is built on the global megatrends changing our lives and impacting packaging production. The drupa touchpoint packaging experience area will showcase multiple packaging applications in a tangible way providing inspiration for brand owners, designers and converters. It will be a drupa 2020 ‘must see’ with guided tours, short lectures, panels and tangible samples.
touchpoint 3D fab + print
The enormous potential of additive manufacturing will be an outstanding topic at drupa 2020. The touchpoint 3D fab + print in Hall 7A will complement the exhibitors’ offerings and reflect the entire spectrum of 3D technologies. State-Of-The-Art innovations and Best-Practice-Cases will be presented. The special show will be a meeting place with visionary opportunities for 3D printing. Visitors will be able to engage and be inspired by the tremendous economic potential of additive manufacturing.
dna – drupa next age
dna stands for drupa next age. The special show is dedicated to the long-term future topics of the industry and stimulates productive exchanges between global players and start-ups aiming at innovation in a fast changing world. The special show builds on the start-up area of the previous drupa innovation park (dip!) and is embedded in a new hall concept. Innovators from the start-up scene have the opportunity to present new product ideas, services and new approaches addressing future technologies to facilitate communication around print.
drupa cube, the conference and event programme for drupa 2020, will focus on the innovative power of print and the exciting potential of diverse print applications in a wide variety of industries and areas of life. This involves new technologies such as printed electronics and creative multichannel applications or the use of digital printing techniques in conventional sectors like packaging or in in a myriad of vertical markets. At the same time, the drupa cube’s interdisciplinary approach bridges the gap between creative agencies, marketers and brand owners across numerous markets. The design of the programme and its implementation on site are the responsibility of the British based brand agency FreemanXP.
