FESPA Global Print Expo 2021 postponed third time
Following the postponement of drupa 2021, the organisers of FESPA Global Print Expo, Amsterdam, have been forced to fast forward the show by six months, from March to October 2021. The dire COVID-19 pandemic situation in Europe has caused the RAI management in Amsterdam to cancel all trade shows scheduled for the first quarter of 2021. FESPA has therefore moved its Global event to October and all exhibitor contracts will transfer over to the later date. In an official notice, FESPA states that the move follows confirmation that all international exhibitions in the RAI calendar have been moved out of Q1 and re-scheduled into Q2 or later. This reflects ongoing uncertainty over COVID-related travel restrictions and visitor quarantine arrangements in The Netherlands, and the risk that these could continue to affect exhibitors and visitors through early 2021. The FESPA events will now take place from 12-15 October 2021 in the same halls of the RAI, enabling FESPA to transition the current floor plan to the later date.
