The Messe Düsseldorf GmbH today announced in a letter that drupa trade fair will be postponed to April 2021. The fair is thus following the recommendation of the crisis management team of the German Federal Government to take into account the principles of the Robert Koch Institute when assessing the risk of major events. Based on this recommendation and the recent significant increase in the number of people infected with the new corona virus, the situation has been reassessed and the fair has been postponed to April 20 to 30, 2021.
Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG supports the decision of the fair in regard of the current health situation. Regardless of the postponement of the fair, Heidelberg continues to drive the innovations forward and will launch and make them available to the customers as planned. In addition, Heidelberg is working on an alternative for its customers who will receive further information shortly.
