PRINTING United Alliance and Messe Düsseldorf Group have formed a partnership, a move the printing technology event organizers say will advance the industry overall.

Starting this year, the partnership between PRINTING United Expo and drupa, located in North America and Europe, respectively, will bolster the reach of each trade fair brand internationally.

“Our partnership with drupa underscores our commitment to advancing the entirety of the printing industry,” Ford Bowers, CEO, PRINTING United Alliance, says. “Together, we will be able to deliver even more opportunities for growth and collaboration to all who participate in the marketplace of events. We look forward in the coming months to sharing our conversations on how this partnership will unfold and the benefits to all our partners.”

Sabine Geldermann, Director, drupa, Portfolio Print Technologies, adds: “PRINTING United Expo’s one-roof approach aligns very strongly with what drupa has brought to the industry over the last seven decades. Showcasing the many applications printing technology has these days, not only in the graphic arts field but in packaging, industrial and textile is what our attendees appreciate.”

More specifics will be unveiled as the partnership takes shape in the coming months.
