Fair Trade’s Stirring Reception By Megy Karydes

Fair Trade Federation Annual Conference

SocialGem-copyThe Fair Trade Federation’s annual conference is an opportunity for like-minded business owners to get together, share their ideas and make business connections, says Renee Bowers, executive director
of the Fair Trade Federation.

Retailers also have the ability to shop during the Fair Trade Expo. “Our Fair Trade Expo lets retailers discover and order fully fair trade products, without the expense and hassle of a large trade show,” adds Bowers. “This is an exciting part of our conference that we hope to see grow.” The next conference will take place on April 1-3 in Indianapolis.
