NEWS: Drupa 2020: AIPIA Member opportunities at the world’s biggest printing technology fair

07-08-2019

AIPIA has been asked to participate in the touchpoint packaging initiative at the hugely important fair DRUPA. The organisers Messe Dusseldorf are extremely keen to represent Active & Intelligent Packaging printed solutions to the attendees which will number several hundred thousand over the 10 days.

This is a MAJOR opportunity for AIPIA members to present relevant technologies (eg Printed Electronics, QR Code advances,  Security, Smart Printing, Inks and Hologrphics, etc.)

THIS EVENT IS ONLY ONCE EVERY FOUR YEARS: Do not miss this opportunity to participate at drupa with AIPIA support.

drupa touchpoint packaging will:

• provide insights into packaging design and production based on consumer needs and use

display latest solutions and applications

• show how future packaging and design will deliver additional value, stimuli and growth opportunities.

drupa touchpoint packaging addresses:

• the classic drupa visitor (converters, print production services suppliers and buyers)

• strong and reinforced focus on brand owners and designers

AIPIA has been asked to co-ordinate member activities. We have been allocated eight timeslots in the Inspiration Corner which will enable those members who participate to present their technologies and  take part in panel discussions.

AIPIA WILL ALSO HAVE A PERMANENT DISPLAY AREA FOR GENERAL PROMOTION AND SOME OVERVIEW SPEAKING SLOTS. We will ask members to offer Keynote address ideas for these slots.
