eSticky at the SightCity fair in Frankfurt
With the eSticky project, we had the pleasure of participating in the SightCity fair in Frankfurt, May 10-12, 2023. Despite the hybrid mode, representatives from Harpo-one of the seven eSticky partners-participated in person at the 2023 edition of the fair.
Together to help people gain new perspectives.
SightCity Fair: always serving people with disabilities

Here is what range of aids exhibitors offer:
- mobility aids;
- high-tech solutions;

- online banking solutions for the disabled.
SightCity Fair: eSticky to the 2023 edition.
In 2023 the fair was held for the first time as a hybrid, with an in-person part at Cape Europe’s new headquarters in Frankfurt and an online part as in the past two years.
Manufacturers from around the world presented new and proven products from their range of aids. About 3,000 visitors found out about the latest developments in the industry and participated in the forum with interesting presentations on topics related to blindness, visual impairment and aids.
Harpo-a Polish research center dealing with assistive technology for people with disabilities and one of seven eSticky partners-had the pleasure of becoming an exhibitor at this event and presenting our project.
The visitors were able to familiarize themselves with the mock-up of the eSticky display, the WebApp for creating messages, the structure of the system, and promotional material about the project funding.
We are really happy with the great interest shown in the eSticky project. There were numerous questions and curiosities about the project from visitors and exhibitors at the fair.
