Many activities have been carried out throughout the years.
In addition to the actions by the associates that have participated in the initiative, AEFI has undertaken “Italian Fairs: culture, environmental quality and innovation for the global market”, which was developed in two stages. Supporting the international expansion of Italy’s trade fair industry, these actions aimed at exhibiting the Italian industry around the world.
