Gietz forgoes presence at drupa early next year

Dear valued customers and partners,


Gietz has taken the hard decision not to attend the upcoming drupa, currently planned for April 2021. Having been present at drupa since its foundation in 1951 and even having been honoured with a certificate, this decision was not taken lightly.


The international focus of the event has always been a key competence of drupa. Considering the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the current situation regarding travel restrictions and health precautions, Gietz AG had to reevaluate and rethink its appearance at the event early next year. This is what has ultimately led us to forego a presence at drupa in April 2021.


We are looking forward to getting together at the next drupa event.
