Success at drupa 2016

It only comes around every 4 years. The world’s leading trade show in print and cross media solutions. Imagine a prominent 11-day event with 1,828 exhibitors from 54 countries attracting over 260,000 visitors. drupa 2016 asserts significant numbers. But only exhibitors themselves can rate the success. And for Mekes, it was just that.


As our operations in graphic machines extend globally, at Mekes, we felt once more compelled to participate at a trade show of this magnitude. For the seventh time, we set up our stand, and 5 Mekes colleagues from 3 locations welcomed the visitors. The goals were set to meet new businesses, gather new contacts and leads, but also for direct sales.

Meeting goals

Ronald Mekes (CEO) claimed the available time to explore the show himself was scarce, as attention for Mekes’ services was thriving. Nonetheless, he kept his eyes and ears wide open to new trends and scouting exceptional machines for bindery and printing.

Ronald: “Currently we are pushing our boundaries with the aim to increase our export. From the far and near in Europe, we purchase our machines, but we export them around the globe.” The recently taken on partnership with Best Graphics Group will contribute to further growth.

“drupa 2016 was an absolute success. I have spoken with so many people, both respected clients and new prospects. Our network has extended widely, and we have sold 16 machines” according to Ronald. The investment of sources, time, and staff is absolutely worth it. There is no doubt that Mekes will exhibit at drupa 2020 once again.
