drupa WORLD TOUR STARTS IN SEPTEMBER 2015: OVER 40 EVENTS ON ALL FIVE CONTINENTS

The World Tour for the promotion of drupa 2016, the world's leading trade fair for print and cross-media solutions, will start in September 2015 with a series of presentations, press conferences and trade press interviews in Asia, Europe and the U.S. Over 40 drupa events will take place well into February 2016, ranging from meetings in small groups to presentations with several hundred participants and one-day industry workshops.

“The drupa World Tour plays a central role in our communications and marketing mix of advertisements, direct mailings, online campaigns, sponsorship activities, PR and press relations. We speak to our visitors and key advocates directly and inform them first hand about the latest drupa happenings,” explained Sabine Geldermann, Director of drupa. “Another advantage: In direct dialogue it's possible to find out where the specific interests and needs lie. Next to personal conversations with visitors, this is of course another invaluable advantage.” At the end of this World Tour, "drupa ambassadors" will have travelled around 275,888 flight miles – equivalent to going around the world almost eleven times.

The drupa World Tour will start on September 12 with a presentation at Igas in Tokyo, directly followed by a press conference on September 14 at Graph Expo in Chicago for the North American media. Activities in Asia will include fourteen events and the promotion in South America will consist of eight drupa events. New on the drupa World Map: Almaty (Kazakhstan) with a Print Promotion Workshop. The destination furthest away from Düsseldorf is Auckland (New Zealand) – about 11,000 flight miles from the drupa city Düsseldorf.
