About the Fair
The 12th International and Regional Fair – Subotica Fair 2018 – will provide space and opportunity for entrepreneurs from Serbia and the neighbouring countries to present their products, to build professional contacts, hence it contributes to the building and strengthening of cross-border cooperation. We would also like to present the public utility companies of our city, especially in the light of services they provide to local citizens. Our vision is to ensure a space for producers so they can present their products and services to a wider circle of consumers.
Besides companies and businesses from the country, mostly from Vojvodina, a number of firms and businessmen from the region – first and foremost from Hungary, Croatia and Bosnia and Hercegovina – have already indicated their intention to participate.
