Thursday May 29th kicks off the 14-day run of Drupa, the quadrennial commercial printing trade show held in Düsseldorf, Germany.
Spirits are not as buoyant as they might be (see "Printing press makers gather amid growing gloom") but newer companies in the mix, like HP (NYSE HPQ), are enthusiastically showing their wares, with the goal of displacing traditional analog printing with digital. (See "A little more than another desktop printer from HP".)
Stay tuned for developments from the show, and also the week following the show, from Amsterdam. On June 18-19, Lyra Research will be hosting their first Lyra Europe Imaging Conference. As is becoming tradition for Lyra events, I will be blogging with updates from the conference sessions.
