FESPA has today announced that FESPA Mexico 2020 will be postponed to 23 – 25 September 2021. The exhibition, which was originally scheduled to take place from 26 – 28 November 2020, will again be hosted at the Centro Citibanamex in Mexico City.

The decision to postpone the exhibition was taken in response to the ongoing business disruption and continued public health risk caused by the global COVID-19 pandemic. Neil Felton, FESPA CEO, explains, “In May 2020, we took the decision to delay FESPA Mexico until November in the face of the developing pandemic. Since then, the impact of COVID-19 in Central America has been dynamic and uncertain. Our number one priority is the health and safety of all of our exhibitors and visitors and we are therefore taking this step to eliminate the risk to all of our participants. We look forward to welcoming our Mexican community back in September 2021.”

FESPA Mexico Exhibitor Showroom

In November 2020, in lieu of the live event, FESPA will be launching a new online Exhibitor Showroom for its Mexican specialty print community. The digital platform will allow regional exhibitors to showcase all their latest news, product launches, and videos. In addition, visitors and prospects will be able to network virtually with exhibitors to share ideas and initiate discussions on sales.

Michael Ryan, Group Exhibition manager concludes, “We recognize the importance of hosting FESPA Mexico in educating, connecting and advancing the specialty print market in Mexico and Central America, so we’re excited to announce the exhibitor showroom. With this initiative, we’re enabling exhibitors and visitors to connect with each other, share knowledge, and spark inspiration until we’re able to meet in person again in September 2021.”

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
