DUSSELDORF, Germany--drupa 2012, print media trade fair, will again offer the Highlight Tours of the latest themes and products on display. These guided tours will cover current industry topics and lead visitors to relevant exhibitors during the tour. “drupa offers the unique opportunity to get to know the international leaders in technology, their products and services firsthand. However, based on this large range on offer, it is sometimes difficult for the visitors to find an overview of their particular areas of interest. This is where the Highlights Tours offer a unique benefit: information in a fast and compact form,” explained Manuel Mataré, project director of drupa 2012. As in 2008, the tours will be organized by the Deutscher Drucker publishing house.
In small groups (maximum of 10 visitors), the tour participants are brought to six to eight selected exhibitors. Competent advisors will explain the respective technology and will be available to answer questions. “By carefully choosing which trade fair stands should be visited, the tour participants obtain a lot of useful information in a very short time and are thus are able to optimize their visit of drupa,” stated tour organizer Bernhard Niemela.
