Maybe the next drupa will be inkjet 4.0, but 2016 is only inkjet drupa 3.0 by my count (2008-2012-2016). Also, so glad that drupa is back to a four-year cycle. That was the right decision. Looking forward to drupa 2020!

Cary & Jim, you always deliver. GREAT interview. I especially like the '12 vs. '16 trends that you identify; the "sales are brisk," industry leader bellwether possibilities; the collaboration with strategic supply chain / oem partners. Couldn't be with you #drupa2016, so THANK YOU for delivering the timely news and excellent takeaways. -Ron & GPA
