New President for drupa 2012
The chairman of the management board of Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG, Bernhard Schreier, is the new drupa 2012 president and chairman of the Exhibitors’ Advisory Board. He replaces Martin Weickenmeier, managing director sales, marketing and service of Körber PaperLink GmbH. Due to the strategic reorientation of the Körber Group’s Paper Division, Weickenmeier is no longer able to manage the responsibilities as drupa president and has, therefore, resigned from his position. Weickenmeier has been head of the drupa executive committee since the last staging of the trade fair in 2008.
“I am delighted to accept the role of drupa president at this particularly exciting and important time for our industry. drupa 2012 is a really crucial initiator for the print media industry, and I will contribute significantly to its successful planning and organization,” stated Schreier, who has been head of the worldwide largest printing press manufacturer since 1999.
drupa 2012, print media trade fair, will take place from May 3 through May 16, 2012 at the fairgrounds in Düsseldorf, Germany.
