Chili publish cancels drupa participation

Chili publish has decided to cancel its presence at drupa, taking place in Germany in June to reduce large-scale exposure to coronavirus, ensure business continuity and ‘put the health and safety of its global team first’.

The company was set to have a booth to welcome visitors from all over the world to demonstrate the new features within Chili publisher, its software technology that simplifies and automates the production of graphics. 

The company decided to take 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. 

‘drupa is the highlight for anyone in print and packaging,’ said Kevin Goeminne, CEO of Chili publish. ‘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.’

Confirmed customer and prospects meetings to showcase the new features in Chili publisher are being rebooked to individual meetings, dedicated webinars and online meetings. The company is currently investigating alternatives to reach and serve the drupa visitor audience, with new features to be announced as scheduled towards the end of April.
