Take me to the Fair

The Flanders International Trade Fair, based in Ghent, was founded in 1946. It was the first official trade fair in a liberated Europe. As an annual autumn event in the difficult postwar years, it not only played a key role in the economic recovery of Ghent. By its international scope and quickly growing prestige the Flanders Trade Fair also largely contributed to the cooperation between European countries and with the rest of the world.
