Following close consultation with exhibitors and partners, the 2021 edition of drupa, the world’s leading trade fair for Printing Technologies, will be canceled due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. The next event will take place as scheduled from 28 May to 7 June 2024. To maintain the momentum until then, the organizers will be holding a four-day digital event titled ‘virtual.drupa’ to take place from 20 to 23 April 2021 during the time frame drupa was originally scheduled for. A press release to this effect reaches us in the evening of 3 December 2020 in New Delhi.

Through these times of ambiguity and challenge, the packaging industry in India and in most parts of the world has been fortunate. We are now read in more than 90 countries as our coverage widens and increases in impact.
