Exhibitions for 2016

2016 hails the return of Europe's largest print exhibition - Drupa.  D&K will be exhibiting in Hall 11, Stand D40.  The show takes place in D├╝sseldorf from 31st May until 10th June. 
  

Being launched at the show will be our new B3 fully automated laminator.  Benefiting from a very compact footprint the new "baby Europa" will process sheets up to 370mm wide at speeds of up to 15m per minute.  We are running a competition to name the baby!  Bottle of champagne to the winner.  Email us at  info@dkeurope.co.uk with your suggestion.




Before Drupa we will be exhibiting at FamaArt, Bologna, Italy and Sign & Digital, NEC, Birmingham.

D&K have also signed up again for The Print Show, Birmingham, UK.   Staged for the second time from October 11th to 13th, 2016, The Print Show is a forward-looking annual exhibition designed to provide the key tools that everyone from the smallest high-street print shop, to the biggest conglomerate needs to remain competitive.
 
Rather than just another corporate orientated event, The Print Show will also work to provide a fun and entertaining celebration of the industry's culture and history-seeing a series of on-going live demonstrations of traditional print and finishing techniques from letter press, to intaglio, relief, and stone litho printing.
