Child fair 15–17 October 2021

Child Fair next time 15–17 October 2021

Due to the prolonged Corona situation and authorities’ restrictions, the Child Fair and other events organized at the same time will be rescheduled.

The global pandemic has severely shackled the exhibition industry now for more than a year. Although Corona vaccinations have started in Finland, adequate vaccine coverage is unlikely to be achieved this spring. The pandemic would continue to severely limit the ability of families with children to join the event. The preparation time for such large events is long, so decisions need to be made in good time.

Next time, the Child Fair and OutletExpo as a live event will be held at Messukeskus Helsinki, Expo and Convention Centre on 15-17 October 2021. HupiCon and Pet Friends will be arranged next time in 2022 at Messukeskus on 22-24 April 2022.

The wellbeing of our customers, visitors and our employees is very important for us. We are sorry for this situation that affects all of us. See updated news on
