Fair Trade Federation Conference and Expo

“I am honored to be a part of a community of people who really understand that we can all make a difference.”

-Llenay Ferretti of Ten Thousand Villages, FTF Plenary Speaker 2019

The Fair Trade Federation Conference and Expo is an annual gathering of around 250 employees, owners, and advocates from over 150 fair trade wholesalers, retailers, and organizations from the US, Canada, Europe, and more.

The event not only connects fair trade enterprises to create authentic business relationships, but helps drive sales and build capacity to be successful in an increasingly challenging and competitive marketplace. There is no other event in the US and Canada where enterprises driven entirely by fair trade values gather together in one place!

Highlights include keynote speeches from leaders in fair trade, breakout sessions regarding business tools and fair trade topics (such as financing, digital strategy, fair trade retail, marketing, and supply chain management among others), as well as our notable fair trade expo. The expo is a wholesale showcase full of the myriad colors and fabulous scents of beautiful products from around 50 verified fair trade enterprises!

The Fair Trade Federation Conference and Expo is a chance to come together as a community, share our joys and challenges, reinvigorate ourselves, and to be uniquely inspired each year. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, the 2020 conference and expo was canceled; however, you can find a recap of the 2019 Fair Trade Federation Conference and Expo here.
