MAPIC Practical information

Key Safety Measures & Access Conditions

We look forward to welcoming everyone to MAPIC, where we are committed to providing you with the safest possible exhibition and conference environment. Per application of the sanitary regulations, to access the show, participants must provide a valid sanitary pass (for further info, please read our detailed information).

Regarding the COVID19 situation please keep especting the barrier gestures. The wearing of masks is mandatory whilst in the Fairgrounds. 

We are working with our colleagues at RX (Reed Exhibitions), French national and host city authorities and specialist medical advisors to build a coherent and consistent programme of advanced measures to ensure MAPIC has health and safety measures as its number one priority.


The participants will receive their badge « print at home » by email one week prior to the show. Please due to the covid19 situation and to avoid queues at the entrance, print your badge.

However, If you don’t receive your print at home badge, you will be able to get your badge in the Palais des Festivals Registration area from 29 November afternoon (pre-opening). Please see below the opening hours.


See our FAQs section to learn more about the measures that have been defined in accordance with the Sanitary Protocol of the event industry, the standards of Reed Exhibitions and the recommendations of the WHO. These measures are likely to evolve depending on the health context and rules imposed by French authorities. We are in frequent contact with health and local authorities.
