Holidays Bern, FESPO and Golfmesse in Zurich are taking another hiatus, but confident about approaching formats in 2022

The BERNEXPO GROUPE has decided to postpone both the Holidays Bern fair (13 to 16 January 2022) and FESPO and Golfmesse in Zurich (27 to 30 January 2022) in the coming year due to the deteriorating epidemiological situation and its impact on the tourism industry. The live marketing company is optimistic that future formats – above all, the BEA spring trade fair – will be held next year.

FESPO and Golfmesse on hold until 2022

The FESPO and Golfmesse trade fair in Zurich, originally scheduled to take place in mid-January 2021, will be taking a break next year. Due to the latest developments of the coronavirus pandemic and after thorough examination of all options, the BERNEXPO GROUPE is eliminating uncertainty for its partners in the travel industry by postponing the event.

From 30 January to 2 February 2020, around 600 exhibitors presented the world’s most beautiful destinations. Attendees appreciated the wide range of exhibitions and flocked to FESPO in large numbers – the event organiser BERNEXPO GROUPE reported more than 60,000 visitors.

Arabian Nights to mark 30 years

From 30 January to 2 February 2020, visitors of FESPO Zurich can once more draw inspiration for their next trip.

Inspiration and excitement at FESPO 2019

Mongolia, this year’s guest country, attracted a great deal of attention in particular.

FESPO 2018 was an all-round success

This year’s FESPO, which took place at the Zurich Trade Fair site between 25 and 28 January 2018, more than lived up to its maxim of “The whole world in a single location”: no matter whether it was a relaxing holiday in the Caribbean, an adventure tour of Canada, or a journey of discovery through Romania – over the course of four days, the 600 exhibitors offered FESPO’s 65,000 visitors a diverse range of inspiration for their next holiday. A special highlight of the trade fair was the stand of the guest country, Romania, where the State Secretary whet the audience’s appetite for this mystical destination on the opening day.

Romania to grace FESPO 2018 as guest country

Romania is a country of contrasts: where Count Dracula meets backpackers, Mediterranean flair meets glacial mountain caves and tradition meets the modern age. From 25 to 28 January, visitors to FESPO Zurich will get a taste of this fascinating destination, the guest country at the next Zurich holiday and travel fair.

Le thème spécial « Voyager sans obstacles » à la FESPO 2018

Quelle est la largeur des portes ? Quelle est la hauteur du lit ? La salle de bain est-elle spacieuse ? Et y a-t-il un escalier qui mène au hall d’entrée ou à la piscine ? Les gens qui partent en vacances ne se posent pas ce genre de questions. En revanche, de telles interrogations sont une réalité pour les personnes handicapées avant tout voyage. Pour attirer l’attention du public sur cette problématique et mettre en évidence des solutions adaptées, la FESPO 2018 place le thème spécial « Voyager sans obstacles » au cœur de l’événement.
