drupa 2020 Dates Moved

The dates for drupa 2020 were moved by one week and the trade fair for printing technologies will now be held from Tuesday, June 16 to Friday, June 26, 2020 in Düssel- dorf, Germany. This was agreed by the drupa Committee and Messe Düsseldorf at their meeting on Feb- ruary 15. The key argument for this decision is the fact that in some Eu- ropean countries as well as in Ger- many the summer holidays would have already started during the ini- tially planned dates (June 23 - July 3, 2020). By changing the dates, Messe Düsseldorf is responding to requests from both exhibitors and visitors. According to the research findings from Future Market Insights’ report, titled Smart Labels Market: Global Industry Analysis and Opportunity Assessment, 2016–2026 , nearly 400,000 thousand units of smart la- bels sold globally in 2016 were ac- counted by Radio-Frequency Smart Labels To Hit $22.6B
