Showcase Innovative Printing Technologies at drupa 2020

To address the challenges and transformations in the packaging sector, the touchpoint packaging initiative at drupa 2020 plans to showcase how innovative printing technologies contribute to the future of packaging. drupa,  No. 1 for printing technologies,  will take place from June 16 – 26, 2020 at the fairgrounds in Düsseldorf, Germany.

During the latest steering committee meeting in December 2018, the touchpoint packaging  members AGFA, BOBST, DANONE, ESKO, HEIDELBERG, HP, KURZ, NESTLÉ, SIEGWERK and EPDA (European Packaging Design Association) defined more than 20 projects that will cover key issues such as customization and personalization, digitalization, security and authentication.

In these projects, concepts and the latest know-how about packaging production, finishing techniques and substrates will be developed and presented – the highlight will be prototypes of new packaging solutions that meet the demands and requirements of future consumers and brand owners. The visitor experience will combine physical and non-physical packaging elements via augmented reality, virtual reality and digital workflows.

Over the 11 days of drupa 2020, visitors can listen to keynotes, attend roundtables, engage with specialists and literally touch the newest and most innovative packaging solutions that enable brand owners, packaging designers and packaging converters to meet the requirements of the next decade.

The top-class circle of drupa touchpoint packaging initiators continues to grow and new advanced partners for the drupa touchpoint packaging initiative are BST ELTROMAT, CLOUDLAB, DALIM, EFI, KODAK, KOENIG & BAUER. KONICA MINOLTA, SAUERESSIG, WERK II and MERCK.

In addition, drupa has formalized an agreement with NABA, International Academy of Art, Design and Fashion. A handpicked group of their talented international students will add their insights and creativity to the steering committee member-driven projects and present their own ideas and design concepts for tomorrow’s packaging.

Companies interested in presenting packaging creativity to a large audiences of brand owners and converters from all over the world, can sign up for exhibit space at www.drupa.com/tpp-en.
