RX Austria & Germany, organizer of the The PSI Show, Europe’s largest promotional products trade show, has decided to postpone its 2022 event to April 26-28 due to the ongoing pandemic. The show, which will be held at the Düsseldorf Exhibition Centre in Düsseldorf, Germany, was previously scheduled for January 11-13.

“Pandemic developments across Europe are affecting planning for trade-show organizers, exhibitors and visitors alike,” says Petra Lassahn, director of PSI. “The new wave of cases is causing major uncertainties among both exhibitors and visitors.”

The PSI Show draws more than 50 percent of its exhibitors and visitors from beyond Germany’s borders. Lassahn says the show was to be a “big reunion after challenging times,” but continuing travel restrictions have impacted their planning. She says, “Unfortunately, this current situation also affects PSI in Düsseldorf and its over 350 exhibitors. The postponement from January to April was decided in close consultation with our exhibitors and partners as well as promotional product distributors and consultants. We are guided by the market needs.”
