Hanover, June 12, 2008 – On June 11 Forbo Siegling completed its two weeks at the Drupa. From May 29 we had a 69 m² stand at the leading international fair for printed media.
A total of 1,971 exhibitors from 52 countries showed the 391,000 visitors from 138 nations a wide range of technological innovations and new product ideas in the 19 halls. The fair saw slightly few visitors than in 2004. However, the share of visitors from overseas increased by over 43 percent. As a result, Drupa has proved its international appeal which benefited our multi-lingual team (for example from Japan, China and India). Apart from in-depth discussions with interested parties, competitors and customers from all over the world, a number of new contacts were made. Similarly to 2004, the proportion of foreign visitors was above the Drupa average. At approx. 20%, the majority of foreign visitors came from Asia.
