Did you choose print or did print choose you?

Print chose me! Since I am working in the trade show industry I am dealing with many different industries, ranging from huge boats to small medical instruments and everything in-between. An important part of Messe Düsseldorf’s trade show portfolio are the printing technology trade fairs, including drupa, the No.1 event for this sector worldwide held in Germany. Working on drupa as well as the other printing trade fairs organized by Messe Düsseldorf around the globe got me involved in this sector and working on my first drupa was an amazing experience – and I was hooked! Seeing first-hand all the efforts that go into the printing of material you see every day around you gives you a different perspective – and appreciation for this wonderful and creative sector.

How do you establish credibility with colleagues, clients and bosses?

By being passionate about what I am doing, delivering what I promise, trying to be as versatile as the different trade shows I am working. Every trade show is different and no matter how often I work on them, customers are different, situations are different, client’s requests and needs are different.

Turning challenges into opportunities! Making drupa a virtual event in order to give the printing community a platform to exchange ideas, get vital information and network until we can meet again in person.
