Drupa is postponed

New date: 20.04. – 30.04.2021


Coronavirus continues to spread: Drupa postponed to April 2021
The Drupa trade fair scheduled for 16-26 June 2020 will be postponed to 20-30 April 2021.

Based on this recommendation and the recent significant increase in the number of people infected with the new coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), including in Europe, Messe Düsseldorf has reassessed the situation.
