drupa Essentials of Print: Deborah Corn
With our series drupa Essentials of Print, we provide printing professionals with a platform to share their views on industry-related topics.
[T]he shortest distance between you and a viable global print network is from where you are now to Messe Dusseldorf June 16-26, 2020. It is here that you can find new opportunities for your business through partners, products and services not available in your community. Opportunities to bring new printing possibilities home and win new business with technology no one else has or doesn’t have yet.
drupa is the epicentre of now, next and future. Walking through all the 17 halls at the show in 2016 changed my entire perspective on the printing industry. I had no idea how much technology was out there and more importantly that it was rapidly coming onto the marketplace. drupa is focused on the future of print. Print is the future of drupa. And because of that industry-wide spotlight every four years, companies often plan their product development to ensure a launch during drupa. You can read a press release from home, or you can be there to see it, talk to the product managers, and grab the opportunity before your competition does.
drupa is a living embodiment of global networking. There are presentations and speakers to learn from every minute of the day in every hall. There are like-minded people attending the same educational opportunities that are relevant to you. Partnerships and friendships are born at drupa.
In 2020 drupa dna – drupa next age will launch. This space will be filled with start-ups and innovators who will present new ideas and technologies to the print world.
If you are one of these innovators, click www.drupa.com/dna-en to apply for a space before they are all gone.
And last but not least, if you’re looking for a place to meet new people from around the world, I hereby invite you to join my global network! The Printerverse is coming to drupa 2020 and will present 11 days of free education, events and panel-discussions. We have some very cool programming planned that will illustrate the power of partnership, innovation and yes… a global print network!
Until next time… Print Long and Prosper!
