Proposte 2020 Canceled, a Reliable Source Confirms for F&FI

CERNOBBIO, Italy -- F&FI has learned that Proposte 2020 has been canceled this year, originally scheduled for Sept. 23-25.

It will be postponed until April 19-21, 2021.

The cancelation has not yet been confirmed by Proposte organizers and F&FI is waiting for an official statement.

A source familiar with the proceedings confirmed the cancelation.

The COVID-19 pandemic, and the associated issues surrounding it, is the main reason for the cancelation.

U.S. travelers are not allowed to visit the European Union as of July 1. EU ambassadors supported 15 travel partners, including South Korea, Japan and, with one footnote, China.

Those countries were hit when the pandemic began but were able to bring the coronavirus under control.

The EU requires reciprocal travel and the U.S. currently bars most EU travelers. China will have to remove its travel restrictions on EU members in order to stay on the EU list.

Heimtextil, the biggest international trade fair for home and contract textiles, is expected to be held Jan. 12-15, 2021. Organizers recently sent an email to exhibitors about extensive safety and hygiene regulations. For details, go to: www.messefrankfurt.com/hygiene.
