April 23, 2003 -- Exhibitor registrations received over a year before the start of drupa 2004, print media trade, sold out all 17 halls with 1.7 million square feet of net exhibit space. The organizers expect over 1,800 companies to display their products at drupa 2004 to more than 370,000 visitors.
The event will take place from May 6 – 19, 2004 at the fairgrounds in Düsseldorf, Germany.
For Horst Klosterkemper, Managing Director of Messe Düsseldorf, this result “shows the global printing and communications sector’s clear vote for drupa in Düsseldorf during the difficult economic situation. drupa was, is and will continue to be the world’s No. 1 trade fair for print media, publishing and converting.”
A special highlight at drupa 2004 will again be PrintCity – the strategic alliance of companies within the graphic arts industry headed by MAN Roland and Agfa Gevaert – in Hall 6. Heidelberger Druckmaschinen and cooperating partners will showcase their equipment in Halls 1 and 2, while Halls 15 and 16 will be the location for König & Bauer, Komori and Mitsubishi. After its successful debut at drupa 2000, the used machinery exchange section will again be featured in the Pavilion between Hall 1 and the Congress Center South.
