“Fespa is committed to safeguarding the health of all exhibitors, visitors and contractors at Fespa events to the best of its capabilities. As such, the Fespa board and senior management team is actively monitoring all developments relating to COVID-19. Fespa is currently reviewing a number of proactive options with a view to minimising the risks to all participants at the event,” says Felton in the statement.
