Konica Minolta to showcase latest innovations at ‘virtual.drupa’

| 23 February 2021

Konica Minolta will showcase latest innovations and participate in a number of web sessions at the ‘virtual.drupa’ digital event from 20-23 April 2021, organised by Messe Düsseldorf to maintain the momentum until the next drupa in 2024. Over the four days, the technology leader will present itself, products, workflows and market insights from the areas of cut-sheet toner, labels & packaging and B2 to the global print community.

Building on strong partnerships in a fast-changing world will be central to Konica Minolta’s role at the online show that is based on three areas - Conference, Networking and Exhibition. Admittance is free of charge.

The virtual.drupa provides opportunities to ‘matchmake’ via chat and video meetings. It will also have a daily conference schedule of five different drupa hotspots. This will provide the platform for an online transfer of knowledge through keynotes, presentations, discussion rounds and live sessions on future topics and trends.

"This ‘virtual.drupa’ will provide an important platform for us to reconfirm our commitment to the printing industry. It is now more important than ever to be at our customers’ side to build upon our strong partnership and to drive our future business together. As a global technology leader, we are committed to helping our customers rethink possibilities together." says Olaf Lorenz, General Manager International Marketing Division at Konica Minolta Business Solutions Europe.
