Wayne Robinson, editor of Print21, said, “We have been fortunate to secure the Frankenheim as the venue, its beer is one of the most highly regarded in all of Germany. We look forward to welcoming Aussie and Kiwi printers to what will be a wonderful night, during the greatest show on earth.

”Hosted as usual by Print21, the ANZ drupafest Party is supported by drupa itself, and by local print employers' associations Visual Media Association and PrintNZ.The ANZ drupafest Party is sponsored by leading suppliers to the industry.

Currie Group is Platinum Sponsor, Konica Minolta the Diamond Sponsor, with Gold Sponsors Ball & Doggett, eProductivity Software, Epson, Fujifilm, Heidelberg, Kissel + Wolf, Ricoh, Screen, Xeikon and XMpie.

Robinson said, “The Print21 ANZ drupa parties are an institution, a place where the local industry can get together far from home, compare notes, share tall tales and drinks, and enjoy an evening of beer, music and fun away from the halls of the show."

The ANZ drupafest Party will take place in the Frankenheim Biergarten, a superb outdoor area with seating, and which has a retractable roof in case of blazing sun or showers. The end of May is prime time to enjoy Germany, with the sun not going down until late in the evening. 

Rob Laing, drupa ANZ country manager said, "This year's drupa will give local printers an unrivalled opportunity to discover new solutions in print. But drupa isn't just in the Messe Centre, and for printers from Australia and New Zealand making the trip to Dusseldorf, the Print21 ANZ drupafest Party gives them the opportunity to relax and enjoy time together. It should be a great night, I look forward to being there."

Frankenheim Brewery is easy to get to, by taking a direct 722 bus from the Messe Center, or via tram U-bahn 71 just two stops from the Aldstadt.
