FIRENZE FIERA – Green Pass Will Be Compulsory for Exhibitions, Events, and Congresses from 1st September


Florence, 2nd September 2021. In compliance with the Italian government decisions, the Green Pass will also be compulsory from 1st September 2021 to access Firenze Fiera’s center during exhibitions, events, and congresses.

The Green Pass thus complements “Safe Firenze Fiera”, the regulatory and organisational safety protocol launched last June to restart live events, along with the new and updated guidelines on preventing Covid-19.

All accesses to events scheduled to take place inside the Florence congress and exhibition center will only be permitted with a Green Pass – confirming vaccination, or a proof of recovery from Covid-19, or the negative result of a slab testing carried out, over the preceding 48 hours, by authorized medical centres and institutes -, face masks and body temperature control.

Those coming from non-EU countries will have to show a vaccination certificate confirming the type of vaccine, necessarily approved by EMA.

The first scheduled events which will require an active control of Green Pass are the 13th Experts Live CTO, organised by the Italian Society of Interventional Cardiology and taking place at Palazzo dei Congressi from 17th to 18th September 2021 in co-operation with GISE CTO Meeting, and Florence Trend, the Home Décor and Gifts Fair, to be held at the Fortezza da Basso from 18th to 20th September.

“Even congress and exhibition centers have to live up to their clients, who never stopped producing and constantly innovating”, said Lorenzo Becattini, President of Firenze Fiera. Becattini then added: “This is why protecting the health of organisers, visitors and buyers is our main goal. We want to make sure that everyone is completely safe and comfortable when organising their own event and business, and that people can meet again in safe and Covid-free spaces”.
