The show is expected to run from June 16th-26th in Dusseldorf, Germany and takes place every four years.

Whilst the Belgium-based firm had planned to demonstrate features within its new automation software, CHILI publisher, it has taken the decision not to exhibit as a health precaution.

The statement released by CHILI publish says: “By putting the health and safety of its global team first, the CHILI publish management hopes to further reduce large-scale exposure to coronavirus and ensure business continuity.”

At the time of writing, coronavirus has infected over 113,000 people worldwide and CHILI publish has revealed that these growing figures “urged” it to revise its attendance at large-scale, international events.

...we have a responsibility towards our team, partners, customers and the whole community worldwide to ensure that business continuity and full operability prevail at all times

Kevin Goeminne, chief executive officer of CHILI publish adds: “Drupa is the highlight for anyone in print and packaging. Our team worked hard to deliver new features within the Smart Templates in CHILI publisher, as requested by B2B [business to business] printers, brand owners and agencies.

“However, we have a responsibility towards our team, partners, customers and the whole community worldwide to ensure that business continuity and full operability prevail at all times.”

Instead of attending drupa, CHILI publish plans to rearrange gatherings to individual meetings, dedicated webinars and one-on-one and group online meetings instead.
