As of March 14, 2022, no extraordinary measures against coronavirus applicable to trade fairs and other events at the exhibition center are in the force. The obligation to wear respirators in enclosed spaces was thus abolished.
With this step, trade fairs and other events held at the exhibition center return to the position what we knew them before the pandemic. We are delighted with the growing interest of exhibitors and visitors as well in this season's events and we believe that this trend will continue successfully.
Although the formal inspections have disappeared, the PVA EXPO PRAGUE exhibition center remains a safe place, where we pay attention to increased hygiene and safety standards of all participants. We look forward to seeing you at the upcoming events!
Exhibitions and trade fairs experienced a very special year, when they were among the first to be completely closed and the strictest rules applied to them, when it came to short and partial release. The current weakening of the coronavirus epidemic in the Czech Republic in recent weeks has also brought news of the gradual opening of segments of the economy, sports or social life. And the first good news already concerns the trade fair sector.
Today, the blanket ban on trade fairs ends and the first regulations come into force, under which it is possible to organize exhibitions and fairs. So far, it is a matter of limiting the presence of one visitor to 15 sq m of indoor space, but even that is a good signal and a boost for all those who participate in the preparation of this year's events. "The fairs are being prepared many months in advance," says ABF Executive Director Mr. Martin František Přívětivý, adding: "Exhibitions will be started this year by the car exhibition AUTOSHOW PRAGUE on August 27. We believe that at that time the situation around coronavirus will be even better than today and that we will once again welcome satisfied visitors to the safe environment of the PVA EXPO PRAGUE exhibition center." Companies that traditionally exhibit in Letňany are similarly optimistic and bargaining is missing from most of them.
For September, we are preparing a fair of decorations and gifts for you FOR DECOR & HOME, construction fair FOR ARCH, fair of furniture and home design FOR INTERIOR. You can follow the entire calendar of trade fair events at the Letňany Exhibition Center here.
And finally, another cultural invitation for the summer, when the PVA EXPO PRAGUE exhibition center will once again host a large scale of PRAGUE KEMP LETŇANY concerts and, for the first time, also musical performances of the Karlín Music Theater in the open air. To make the wait go faster, we have a video clip from the workshop @vaclavnoidbartaofficial and ParanoidStudio for you. We are looking forward to seeing you there!
