FESPA Mexico postponed following earthquake

In light of the 7.1 magnitude earthquake that has struck Mexico City and surrounding states on Tuesday 19th September, FESPA has taken the decision to postpone the exhibition as a mark of respect to the people of Mexico.

The earthquake struck shortly after 13.00 (CDT) local time, causing buildings to collapse onto streets in the capital, Mexico City, and surrounding areas.

FESPA has decided, along with the collaboration of its exhibitors, that its 10th edition of FESPA Mexico will be postponed, with dates to be confirmed soon.

Neil Felton, CEO, FESPA comments: “This decision has been taken, not only to respect the City of Mexico, but to also ensure the safety of all visitors and exhibitors.”

We want to thank all our stakeholders for their understanding, and send our sincere condolences to the Mexican people and wish them strength to overcome this difficult period.
