Software supplier Chili publish has cancelled its presence at drupa, scheduled to run in Düsseldorf, Germany, from June 16-26, 2020.
The company was set to have a booth to welcome visitors from all over the world to demonstrate the new features within Chili publisher. Chili says that, by putting the health and safety of its global team first, the Chili publish management hopes to further reduce large scale exposure to coronavirus and ensure business continuity.
Chili publish adds it is taking all precautions as advised by leading health organizations in its personal and business environments. With the public health risks related to coronavirus continuing to grow, statistics urged the Chili publish management to revise its attendance at large-scale, international gatherings.
The company says it regrets the cancellation at the key print event that only takes place every four years. Kevin Goeminne, chief executive officer at Chili publish, says, “drupa is the highlight for anyone in print and packaging. Our team worked hard to deliver new features within the Smart Templates in Chili publisher, as requested by B2B printers, brand owners and agencies. However, we have a responsibility towards our team, partners, customers and the whole community worldwide to ensure that business continuity and full operability prevail at all times.”
