The Fespa Global Print Expo has lifted Covid restrictions on visitor numbers or density, social distancing or the requirement to wear face masks.
The show opens in less than three weeks, running from May 31 to June 3. In line with the relaxation of Covid restrictive measures on the German event industry, Fespa no longer has any testing requirements or checks to enter Messe Berlin or the exhibition. Participants do not need to show proof of vaccination, recent recovery, or negative testing for Covid-19 to enter the exhibition.
Visitors can also rely on enhanced cleaning regimes and prominent hand sanitising facilities throughout the Messe Berlin halls. To reduce physical touchpoints, organisers will encourage visitors to hold their entry badges on their phones. Michael Ryan, head of Fespa Global Print Expo, says, “We have lifted Covid restrictions on visitors. Also, we have a first-class exhibitor line up. So, we can get back to delivering the full experience print and sign professionals expect from a Fespa event.
Fespa has 340 international contracted to exhibit. Key industry players lining up for the event include the likes of Epson, Fujifilm, and HP. Ryan adds, “Excitement is building as we get closer to the event. The recent news of Covid restrictions ending in German venues has delivered another strong surge in exhibitor interest. With 340 confirmed exhibitors, we’ll open a show with almost double the number of companies that were present in Amsterdam last year. So visitors can be sure of finding the products and business solutions they need to fuel their recovery and growth.”
