It is crucial that events around the globe are cancelled or postponed to slow down the spread of COVID-19. Africa Print joins the following events that have taken these steps, including FESPA Madrid, Dscoop and drupa to name a few. Despite the economic costs involved in this decision, the health and safety of staff, exhibitors and visitors is critical.

The following Africa Print expos are affected by the South African Government Lockdown:

• Cape Town Expo – cancelled.
• Eastgate Pop-Up Expo – postponed.
• East London – cancelled.

The Africa Print and FESPA Africa Johannesburg expo, scheduled for 9-11 September 2020 at the Gallagher Convention Centre, will remain unchanged at this stage.

We would like to reassure you that in response to the COVID-19 outbreak, we are taking all the necessary steps to ensure that we remain fully operational, without compromising the health of our staff, their families and the community at large.
