 Messe Düsseldorf has said that Drupa attracted 170,000 trade visitors to the 2024 event that closed its doors on 7 June after an 11-day run. This is down nearly 35%, or more than 90,000 visitors, on the Drupa 2016 figure of 260,165, and below pre-show hopes of hitting the 200,000 mark. Many exhibitors have been very positive about the amount of business done at the show, not least due to the consolidation and changes seen in the industry since the 2016 event.
The next Drupa event will be held in 2028.

After Europe, Asia was the most strongly represented region, with 22%, followed by America, with 12%. Exhibitors including Canon, Fujifilm, Heidelberg, HP, Horizon, Koenig & Bauer, Komori, Konica Minolta and Landa, reported having signed contracts that significantly exceeded their expectations.

Numbers are down as there are less people in print and not everyone wantds to travel. But the deals were happening and thats what matters.
