Electronics For Imaging has canceled its planned exhibit at the drupa 2021 tradeshow taking place in Dusseldorf, Germany, next April.
The EFI cancelation follows dropouts from HP, Kodak and Fujifilm.
“Our company has a long, positive history with drupa, as do I personally, having also run two companies that have been major drupa exhibitors in the past,” said Jeff Jacobson, chairman and CEO of Silicon Valley-based EFI. Jacobson said it was an “unfortunate albeit prudent decision,” citing the limited amount of knowledge now about what conditions will be for public gatherings early next year.
HP is the fair’s biggest exhibitor. HP also canceled its appearance at sister event Interpack, U.K.-based Printweek reported.
