Print & Digital Convention 2023 Wraps Up Successful Event

With around 1,200 participants, the sixth Print & Digital Convention, held May 16-17 in Düsseldorf, Germany, came to a successful close after bringing together numerous experts from the print and media industry. This year, the focus was on trending topics such as sustainable media production, programmatic print, multi-channel publishing and value-added printing. It included an exclusive group of around 70 exhibitors, including Canon, FKS, Horizon, Konica Minolta, KURZ and Xerox, that shared creative solutions and exhibits, as well as 47 speakers who shared their expertise and insights in a total of 38 lectures.

“The Print & Digital Convention is an absolute heart and soul project. We are proud to see how this format has developed over the past few years,” said Rüdiger Maaß, managing director of f:mp. “Our great thanks go to the exhibitors, speakers and partners who consistently drive the concept in constant exchange with us. We also are particularly delighted with the approximately 20% new exhibitors, who not only enhance the ranges for our visitors, but have also provided many new ideas and impulses.”

Ranging from digital transformation and print in a modern marketing mix to sustainable finishes, the latest topics, trends and views were discussed.

“Here, brand owners, agencies and media producers find concrete solutions allowing them to efficiently implement their marketing strategies,” said Sabine Geldermann, director drupa, printing technologies Messe Düsseldorf. “The Print & Digital Convention also convinced attendees this year again with its strong practical relevance, concrete applications and the comprehensive know-how conveyed in the talks. This success shows us that we are on the right track and our themes and ranges strike a chord with the sector.”

The next Print & Digital Convention will be held as part of drupa 2024, a trade fair for printing technologies, held from May 28–June 7, 2024, in Düsseldorf, Germany.
