Exhibitor FAQ

Fi Europe co-located with Hi Europe transitions to virtual in 2020

We had been optimistic that the situation would improve in time for the in-person event in December.

However, over the course of the last few weeks, we have been in contact with many of you and your feedback has been clear. Due to concerns around international travel, coupled with uncertainty around how the situation will develop over the next few months, we made the proactive decision to transition the event now, allowing you enough time to adjust your plans

You will need to discuss this directly with your provider as Informa is not involved in these expenses.

Please reach out to the Service Contractor directly with whom you have purchased a service to see whether this service can be rolled over to 2021.
