Home fair kicks off despite COVID-19 fears


Iztok Bricl, the director of fairgrounds operator Gospodarsko Razstavišče, noted that Home was the company's biggest and oldest event, with its 60th anniversary coming up next year.

It features more than 500 exhibitors and has attracted more than 55,000 visitors each time in the recent years.

Bricl expressed satisfaction that the company decided to go through with the fair despite the spreading of coronavirus in the region. This was also commended by Šarec.

Meanwhile, Ljubljana Mayor Zoran Janković said that the turnout this morning indicated that visitor numbers at the show this year will surpass last year's.

To lower the risk of COVID-19 transmission, Gospodarsko Razstavišče has placed a number of hand sanitisers across the premises and increased ventilation. No COVID-19 cases have been confirmed in Slovenia so far.
