Several hundred thousand visitors from almost 200 countries met again at drupa in Düsseldorf. The world’s largest and most important trade fair for print and cross-media solutions took place from 16 to 26 June.
Exhibitors include companies offering printers and print products as well as suppliers of inks, paper and other printable materials. Even the recycling of print products plays a role. The fair itself is aimed at buyers, IT experts from the service sector, trade associations and research institutes.
The majority of visitors come to the trade fair with investment intentions, so there are a lot of opportunities for doing business. The first step towards a successful initial contact is, of course, an interesting booth that stands out from the crowd and attracts the attention of numerous trade visitors. Good preparation is everything, which is why we at WUM Design see every stand construction as a unique project with which we want to inspire visitors.
drupa: Trade fair for decision-makers
A special feature of the fair is the high number of decision-makers among the trade visitors. The press office reported that “around 75 percent of all visitors are executives and have a decisive or co-decisive involvement when it comes to investments in their companies”. Anyone working in the field of print products of all kinds should therefore not miss the trade fair, which only takes place every four years.
Printing technologies are regarded as future technologies, which is why drupa can be reached via the Internet on various channels. This ranges from the classic Homepage to a Blog, Xing, Facebook and Twitter and LinkedIn..
At such an important trade show, where you meet demanding decision-makers and only get the opportunity to present your company every four years, an attention-grabbing booth should not be underestimated.drupa: Messe für Entscheider
