  • Drupa 2012: The Fair Report

    Every four years, Messe Düsseldorf, the giant trade fair grounds and organizer in Dusseldorf, Germany, plays host to Drupa, the world's biggest print media exhibition. This year's event, which ran May 3–16, attracted 1,844 exhibitors and 314,500 visitors, down from 1,971 and 391,000, respectively, in 2008. The drop is reflective of the shrinking print and graphic arts sector: in Germany and the U.S. combined, more than 11,000 printing operations have closed down in the past few years. Large delegations were few. Instead, top managers with specific investment intentions were in attendance. Foreign visitors numbered more than 190,000 (more than 60% of the total), and the 15,000-plus attendees from India form the second largest group after Germany.
