Africa News: Drupa World Tour Making Stop In Egypt


The drupa world tour has been running for several months now to explain the concept and the wide range of special shows and conferences on offer during the eleven-day trade fair, and to draw the attention of trade visitors and media representatives from all over the world to the most important technology trends.

The tour organised by Messe Düsseldorf, PrintPromotion GmbH and the VDMA Printing and Paper Technology Association will make a stop in Egypt (February 16, Hotel Ramses Hilton, Cairo). Leading technology providers from the printing, finishing and postpress sectors will explain which process and process innovations they consider to be particularly promising – and how megatrends in the industry influence their product development and customer projects.

Werner M. Dornscheidt will participate in the conferences as Chairman of the Board of Management of Messe Düsseldorf GmbH. He will explain the status of the trade fair preparations and present the concept of drupa and its hotspots. Claus Bolza-Schünemann, drupa President and CEO of Koenig & Bauer AG, will also outline key technology trends and their impact on the printing and packaging industry. Afterwards, representatives of leading machine manufacturers will support his presentation with current innovations and technological developments. The conference topics will include lectures from HEIDELBERG, H.C. Moog, IST Metz, KAMA, Koenig & Bauer, LEONHARD KURZ as well as Müller-Martini and POLAR-Mohr. In Casablanca, BW Papersystems will also contribute to the lecture program.

The specialist conference in Cairo will start with an introductory presentation on Egypt’s printing industry, in which Ahmed Gaber, the chamber chairman of the printing and packaging industry, will impart first-hand knowledge. The specialist conference also promises important added value for participants who will not be coming to Düsseldorf. At the end of the conference, there will be the opportunity for in-depth discussions with the lecturing experts and for networking during a conclusion with a final cocktail.
