Fabbrica del Vapore
The first World Fair Trade Fair will take place from 28 to 31 May 2015 at the “Fabbrica del Vapore”, at Via Procaccini 4, in Milan.
Milan Fair City is the main event – along with the WFTO Biennial Conference – of the 2015 World Fair Trade Week.
For the first time in Italy, Milano Fair City will be held in the prestigious location of the “Fabbrica del Vapore”, right in the city centre.
200 exhibitors from all over the world: food and crafts, businesses in the Global South and ‘domestic’ fair trade, international cooperation and the solidarity economy. The event will allow the public to meet with Fair Trade producers, giving the chance of not only buying products but also starting a dialogue with fair traders. It is a unique opportunity to participate in high-profile workshops and meetings and experience the values and practices of Fair Trade.
The event will take place from Thursday 28to Sunday 31 May: the first day will be dedicated to operators, activists and journalists in a B2B spirit, whereas from Friday until Sunday the fair will be open to the public.
The Cathedral of “Fabbrica del Vapore” is a spectacular space with more interconnected spaces and an outside area where the “Earth Market” by Slow Food takes place twice a month. During the Milano Fair City event, it will include spaces for 200 exhibitors, high quality catering, meetings and workshops. The event will hopefully see the participation of about 50,000 visitors. Entrance is free.
