The print industry of tomorrow is exploring new horizons – join in on the journey!
drupa has established a special new area: dna – drupa next age, the center of disruptive developments. This is the innovative heart of drupa, a transparent hall and stand concept that creates a networking space where global players, start-ups, and key players in the industry can engage in productive exchange about new product ideas, prototypes, and business models, as well as present new approaches, solutions, and technologies for relevant cross-sectional technologies in the print, media, and packaging industry. The clear and open exhibition area is grouped around the central dna stage, the epicenter for talks and carrying on discussions. Get inspired by numerous visionaries from a wide array of industries!
In the dna framework program, experts work with current formats such as perfect matches, elevator pitches, and the 3-minds-1 vision method to find the answers to three topic clusters:
What major hurdles do we anticipate in the print industry? Companies established in the industry will present their innovative products and forwardlooking ideas here.
What solutions can we use to overcome these hurdles? Up-andcoming game-changers and representatives from innovative start-ups answer this question for us.
What does the world of tomorrow look like, and what significant contributions will the print industry make to it? Key speakers give us a look at their founded expertise.
Innovative cross-sectional technologies make up dna’s main area of focus:
