15/03/2021 – New: “Digital Friday” from June until January 2022 — auf Deutsch lesen
PSI, PromoTex Expo and viscom 2021 will take place online
The trade show trio of PSI, PromoTex Expo and viscom, planned for 18–20 May, will take place this year online. The next physical PSI is planned for January 2022.
Under the name ‘PSI Digital’, the three trade shows for the promotional products, textile and finishing industries will offer a top-class online programme – live and on-demand – from 19 to 21 May, 2021. In addition, there will be a Digital Friday on every second Friday of the month from June until the next face-to-face event in January.
Benedikt Binder-Krieglstein, CEO of organiser Reed Exhibitions Deutschland:
“We know how important it is to bring the promotional products industry together for a much-needed face-to-face exchange. However, pandemic restrictions and delays in vaccine-programs are not providing the required security for an on-site event with physical visitor-attendance in May. In addition, the possible reopening of events will be discussed at the earliest at the next meeting of the heads of states on 23 March. We have therefore decided, together with our exhibitors and partners, to unite industries virtually this year and return to the Düsseldorf exhibition centre with PSI in January 2022.”
48 hours PSI Digital
From 19 to 21 May 2021, Wednesday noon to Friday noon, PSI Digital will offer a virtual trade show experience for 48 hours. Visitors worldwide will have access to various PSI sourcing tools, product presentations and a top-class programme, including live interviews and panel discussions broadcast on ‘PSI TV’. Online seminars, interviews and how-to videos on key industry topics will also be found on-demand.
All trade show visitors – i.e. also non-members – have will receive a free 48-hour access pass to the PSI Product, Supplier and Distributor Finder.
Petra Lassahn, Director of PSI:
“This provides all visitors with the best tools for acquisition and lead generation free of charge for two days. By giving the industry a voice and a digital platform on which to exchange ideas, network and educate themselves at a European level in these difficult times, we are contributing to important community building.”
Once a month: Digital Friday
From June until the trade show in January 2022, the digital trade show will be extended to include ‘Digital Fridays’. In concrete terms, this means that on every second Friday of the month, all participants will have access for one day to a broad programme as well as the same sourcing and networking offers as in May.
