drupa’s new digital platform is to go live on 27 October, previewing the next live drupa event with its three areas, ‘Exhibition Space’, ‘Conference Area’ and ‘Networking Plaza’.

drupa preview will kick-off at 10am CET on 27 October with a panel discussion to present the new platform and address the current situation in the industry. Participants on the discussion include drupa director Sabine Geldermann, DVDMA managing director Dr Markus Heering and Dr Christian Plenge, executive director, digital at Messe Düsseldorf.

Following this, companies and speakers will present a series of live web sessions.

drupa preview was introduced earlier this year as a means for embattled print industry event to connect with the industry, and connect exhibitors and attendees prior to the physical event in April next year.
