In 2024 the international print and packaging industry will once again meet at drupa, the world's leading trade fair for printing technologies. Exhibitors can now register online to present their innovations in Düsseldorf from 28 May to 7 June 2024. The closing date for registrations is 31 October 2022.

The desire for a personal meeting at Leipzig Book Fair was huge. But numerous cancellations of exhibitors within the past few days led to the fact that the expected quality and breadth of content of such a large public fair is no longer guaranteed. For these reasons, Leipziger Messe, in agreement with the Advisory Board, has decided to cancel the trade fair combination of the Leipzig Book Fair, Manga Comic Con, Leipzig Reads and Antiquarian Book Fair from March 17 to 20, 2022. The next Leipzig Book Fair will take place from March 23 to 26, 2023.

Based on data from a previous study by the Graphic Communications Workforce Coalition (GCWC), for every 10 people in a printing company, almost 4 are eligible to retire between now and 2030. With a well-known shortage of skilled labor across the entirety of the US workforce, printing companies and manufacturers are desperate to replace their very experienced, specialized workforce. This urgency is why Heidelberg is taking a proactive approach to developing the next generation of print industry professionals through vocational development with its Apprenticeship Program both in the United States and in Germany.
