In 2024 the International print and packaging industries will again meet at drupa, the world’s leading trade fair for printing technologies. Exhibitors can now register online at www.drupa.com to present their innovations in Düsseldorf, Germany, from 28 May to 7 June 2024. The deadline for registrations is 31 October 2022.

“drupa is the global meeting place for the industry and stands for innovations and trends,” emphasizes Erhard Wienkamp, managing director of Messe Düsseldorf. “Here, we will see what impact the mega trends sustainability and digitalization will have on processes, products, business models, and the future of a constantly evolving industry.”

drupa will focus on the future technologies

drupa will showcase cutting-edge technologies along the industry’s entire value chain, focusing on future and cross-industry technologies. Against this background, topics such as circular economy, automation, print/finishing 4.0, Artificial Intelligence, the platform economy, and connectivity will play a central role in the conference agenda and special forums.

New key visual and new claim

drupa 2024 presents itself with a new, dynamic look and feel for the start of exhibitor applications. “The new motion design of our key visual combines classic graphic design with state-of-the-art digital technology and is synonymous with dynamism, motion, and especially with water as the most important resource on our planet,” explains Sabine Geldermann, director Print Technologies Messe Düsseldorf. 

“It also visualizes the top themes of digitalization and sustainability, which drive the print & packaging industries, confront them with new challenges, and offer excellent opportunities. International faces represent the target group of drupa, which is looking forward to networking in a fascinating atmosphere characterized by diversity. Organic structures stand for aesthetics, design, and the beauty of nature. The new claim ‘we create the future’ underscores the clear commitment of the community to jointly and proactively participate in the continuous development and design of the sector. And it represents thought leaders as well as high-quality knowledge transfer.”

New exhibitor brochure sustainably produced

drupa is equally committed to sustainability, which is also successfully reflected in the new exhibitor brochure. This brochure was produced in a sustainable and climate-neutral way using state-of-the-art technology and environment-friendly resources. The digital version can now be downloaded from the website.

Forums for interaction and dialogue

At drupa 2024, there will once again be a high-caliber lecture program by top international speakers offering valuable knowledge to stay competitive. At the drupa cube and various touchpoints focusing on the segments Packaging, Textile, and Sustainability, participants will gain detailed insights into relevant topics and impulses for growth potential and the further development of their business models. Start-ups will be hosted at ‘dna – drupa next age’ using this opportunity to showcase their innovative services and ideas to a highly international and interested audience.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia.is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
