A unique oppotunity to deeply know about italian food. Professional but close to the client. Seriously, a great approach to the “new traditional Italian Market”.

A good fair in many ways. Perfect size, not too small or too big and the suppliers had time to engage in discussions and meetings. Very well organized by the staff. I definitely would recommend joining the fair.
