Following the evolution of the Covid-19 epidemic on French territory and the latest government announcements, the company 656 Editions, organiser of the CTCO Lyon exhibition, has decided to cancel the 2021 edition, initially scheduled for 2, 3 and 4 February next. This decision was taken in close consultation with numerous partners. We look forward to seeing all the players in the media object market at the Premium Sourcing exhibition, which will be held at the Carrousel du Louvre in Paris on 1 and 2 September 2021, as well as at CTCO 2022.

Following the evolution of the Covid-19 epidemic on French territory and the latest government announcements, 656 Editions has decided to cancel the CTCO Lyon show, which was scheduled to take place on February 2, 3 and 4, 2021. A difficult choice to make, but the conditions are not yet in place for this event to take place in all serenity, on the dates initially planned, explains the exhibition organiser.

“This important decision was taken in close consultation with numerous partners. Our ambition has always been to offer a quality event, for all audiences, while mastering the security issues. The initial dates of the CTCO show – organised on 2, 3 and 4 February 2021 – were in response to the seasonal nature of the promotional items and textiles market, in particular by allowing exhibitors to present their new products at the beginning of the year. A postponement to the first half of the year did not allow this strong market challenge to be met. We therefore regret to announce the cancellation of the 2021 edition. We would like to thank our exhibitors and partners, who have renewed their support during this unprecedented period,” says Pierre Mirlit, Managing Director of 656 Éditions.

The organising team remains at the disposal of all CTCO show stakeholders to support them and help them maintain the link with the market through various tools (magazine, digital solutions, etc.) and looks forward to seeing all market players at the Premium Sourcing show to be held in Paris (Carrousel du Louvre) on 1 and 2 September 2021, as well as at CTCO Lyon in February 2022.

The C!Print Lyon trade fair, which was to be held on the same dates in the neighbouring hall, has been postponed to 8, 9 and 10 June 2021.
