FESPA Global Print Expo 2020 along with the co-located exhibitions, European Sign Expo 2020 and Sportswear Pro 2020, will take place as scheduled from March 24-27 at IFEMA, Feria de Madrid, Spain.

According to a statement released by the association, FESPA takes the concerns of exhibitors, visitors and partners regarding the outbreak of COVID-19 (also known as novel coronavirus) very seriously. Safety is always first priority, and FESPA wishes to take proactive steps to minimise the risks to all participants at the March 2020 events in Madrid. As such, the FESPA Board and Senior Management Team is actively monitoring all developments relating to COVID-19, guided by latest information from WHO (World Health Organisation).

The statement went on to say that FESPA is contacting all exhibiting companies from China at the three Madrid 2020 exhibitions, requiring that they provide documented evidence proving that all representatives of their company attending the exhibitions, including sub-contractors, have not resided in or visited China at any time after March 5 (the two-week period leading to the expo). Exhibiting companies from China not fulfilling this requirement will not be able to participate at the Madrid 2020 exhibition.

“By taking this proactive step with regard to our exhibiting companies to China, our aim is to safeguard the health and well being of every participant at our FESPA 2020 events to the best of our abilities, while also providing strong reassurance to our exhibitor and visitor communities. We look forward to a vibrant and successful event in Madrid in March,”  FESPA CEO Neil Felton said.
