The new measures going into effect on September 1 for trade fairs in Greece, the announcement of Comicdom Con Athens 2021 and the scheduled return of eGaming at Thessaloniki’s International Fair!
THE NEW MEASURES FOR CONVENTIONS IN GREECE !
The return of trade fairs ( conventions, festivals, etc. ) in Greece was officially announced on July 14 by the Greek Minister of Development and Investment, Adonis Georgiadis, during his visit to the special defense industry exhibition DEFEA – Defence Exhibition Athens, which was hosted at the exhibition center Metropolitan Expo!
The Minister stated that: “Greece, observing all health protocols and without endangering public health, opens the exhibition branch from September 1 for the vaccinated, so that the economy and business life can proceed in health and safety. We are fully prepared and confident in the success of this opening and we will do very well!
What does this mean? Simply put, conventions return on September 1, with only fully vaccinated people allowed indoors, upon presentation of the corresponding vaccination certificate they receive after completing the Covid-19 vaccination process!
Τι ισχύει για ανήλικους; Προς το παρόν, εκτός αν αλλάξει κάτι, στους κλειστούς χώρους η είσοδος τους επιτρέπεται με την επίδειξη υπεύθυνης δήλωσης αρνητικού self-test υπογεγραμμένης από τους γονείς τους έως και 24 ώρες πριν την έλευσή τους.
What about minors? At the moment, unless something changes, they are allowed indoors by presenting a negative self-test statement signed by their parents up to 24 hours before their arrival.
Given that only 11% of 18-24 year olds, 22% of 25-29 year olds and 34% of 30-34 year olds had been fully vaccinated in Greece up to two weeks ago, questions arise how much these rates will have increased by September and what effect this will have on the presence of Cosplayers in possible conventions that take place exclusively indoors, but also on those that are mainly dependant on young ones and young adults as an audience!
