Fair Trade Federation Conference
















The FTF 2016 annual conference happened in beautiful Burlington, Vermont, on April 26-28. Burlington was a great fit to welcome our FTF members and friends! We’re proud to say, the Burlington conference was bigger and better than ever with record breaking attendance!  We’re so glad you came and many thanks to our sponsors and supports (listed below)!

The FTF conference is designed to provide attendees with practical tools for growing fair trade businesses and for building our fair trade movement. We’ll announce the 2017 conference location later this year.  Sign up for our email list to read conference news as soon as it’s released.
