PGCA drupa Experience! A Private Turn-key VIP Tour

Print & Graphic Communications Association is sponsoring a VIP tour for next year’s drupa in Dusseldorf, Germany.  PIA’s drupa Experience! a Private Turn-Key VIP Tour runs from June 1-6, 2016.

drupa 2016 is expected to feature technology covering the entire print and cross media marketplace.  International global players and market leaders will be at drupa 2016 alongside upcoming and innovative companies from around the world.  With the motto of “Touch the Future”, drupa 2016 will focus heavily on future oriented technologies such as inkjet printing, 3D printing, printed electronics, packaging, production, multi-channel, and green printing.

In announcing this program, Print & Graphic Communications Association President Tim Freeman remarked, “We have all heard or experienced some of the horror stories of overpriced, poor hotel rooms, the sometimes long and difficult commutes from outside Dusseldorf, and the inability to get appointments and access to key exhibitors. The program we have put together guarantees that our participants will have a hassle-free drupa experience and be able to focus on understanding the technology that is being presented at the show.”

PIA’s drupa Experience, a Private Turn-Key VIP Tour trip has eliminated the hassles of travelling to drupa.  Attendees will receive deluxe hotel accommodations at the Sheraton Dusseldorf Airport Hotel.  The hotel is located steps outside the airport terminal.  A quick train ride from the station located below the hotel will take you to the drupa exhibits in minutes.  Attendees will enjoy a full American breakfast each morning, 5 day show credentials and catalogue, public transportation to and from the show, an opening night reception on June 1, Happy Hour on June 3, and most importantly, guided and scheduled Executive VIP briefings at key drupa exhibits.

PIA Executive Vice President Marty Maloney commented, “Print & Graphic Communications Association wanted to make sure that our guests had the opportunity to meet top executives at some of the leading supplier partners in our industry in a small group atmosphere that will be conducive to questions and discussion.  These companies are introducing new technology into the industry that will revolutionize the production process for years to come and our VIP guests will get a firsthand look.”

Executive VIP briefings are scheduled with:

International Paper
Konica Minolta
Muller Martini
Additional VIP briefings will be announced over the coming months. 

Total cost is $3,500 per person with each attendee responsible for their own airfare and travel arrangements.
