LONGARONE FAIR, THE DOLOMITES EXHIBITION CENTRE
Belluno is internationally renowned as headquarter of successful eyewear, but also thanks to the Dolomites where tourism continues to have a key role as engine for the local economy. In this socio-economic context there is Longarone Exhibition Dolomiti, a promotional centre and showcase for sales promotions. The opening dates back 1959 when the first edition of the International Exhibition of Artisan Gelato took place. Later it developed involving other economic sectors: interior design, agriculture, forestry sector, tourist activities, leisure, sport, agricultural field, collecting, electronic, information technology and school orientation.
Today Longarone Exhibition Dolomiti is a functioning meeting point for commercial interchanges between Dolomites area and north-east Italy. In this region it is one of the most useful tool for promotion and economic cooperation, also with Austria and Germany. The companies participation at fairs is increasingly constant and numerous, in particular in gelato parlour sector, handcraft and forest management.
