Press release from the issuing company


New York, N.Y. – Printing Industries Alliance is again sponsoring a VIP tour at drupa in Dusseldorf, Germany. PIA’s drupa Experience! a Private Turn-Key VIP Tour runs from June 17-22, 2020. PIA has arranged for private VIP scheduled and curated tours of leading exhibitors led by the exhibitors top management and PIA’s Tim Freeman and Marty Maloney.

drupa 2020 is expected to feature technology covering the entire print spectrum; including conventional, digital, inkjet, nanography, wide format and more. It will cover all the verticals including commercial, label and packaging, textile as well as covering virtually everything printed on every possible substrate. International global players and market leaders will be at drupa 2020 alongside upcoming and innovative companies from around the world. With the motto of “Embrace the Future”, drupa 2020 will focus heavily on future oriented technologies such as inkjet printing, 3D printing, printed electronics, packaging, production, multi-channel, and green printing.

In announcing this program, Printing Industries Alliance President Tim Freeman remarked, “We have all heard or experienced some of the horror stories of overpriced, poor hotel rooms, the sometimes long and difficult commutes from outside Dusseldorf, and the inability to get appointments and access to key exhibitors. The program we have put together guarantees that our participants will have a hassle free drupa experience and be able to focus on understanding the technology that is being presented at the show.”

PIA’s drupa Experience, a Private Turn-Key VIP Tour trip has the solution to that problem. Attendees will receive deluxe hotel accommodations at the Sheraton Dusseldorf Hotel. The hotel is located very convenient to the airport and a quick shuttle bus ride will take you from the hotel to the drupa exhibits in minutes. Attendees will enjoy a full American breakfast each morning, 5 day show credentials and catalogue, transportation to and from the show, an opening night reception on June 17th, a Happy Hour on June 19th, and most importantly, guided and scheduled Executive VIP briefings at key drupa exhibits.

PIA Executive Vice President Marty Maloney commented, “Printing Industries Alliance wanted to make sure that our guests had the opportunity to meet top executives at some of the leading supplier partners in our industry in a small group atmosphere that will be conducive to questions and discussion. These companies are introducing new technology into the industry that will revolutionize the production process for years to come and our VIP guests will get a firsthand look. So check your passport and call to reserve your spot today!”.

In 2016 Executive VIP briefings were scheduled with:

Landa, Xerox, Heidelberg, EFI, Muller Martin, Canon, HP, Konica Minolta, International Paper, Ricoh and Kodak.

Drupa 2020 VIP briefings will be announced over the coming months. Any vendor who wants to be considered for the tour should contact Marty Maloney at 203 912 0804 or m.maloney@pialliance.org

Total cost is $3,500 per person with each attendee responsible for their own airfare.

Many of the 2016 participants are returning for drupa 2020. Their 2016 comments included; “PIA made drupa impossibly easy”, “top notch exhibit visits that included vendor top brass and even some CEO’s”, “ PIA had flawless planning and execution”, a carefully planned itinerary but still time for my own visits”, “ I always wanted to attend drupa and the PIA gave me the trip of a lifetime!”.
