Visit the Workshop Fair 2011 in Nuremberg
Once more, we are glad to invite you to visit our annual Workshop Fair in Nuremberg, taking place from 17 until 20 March 2011. Workshops for adapted work present their products and services and invite to exchange information and expert knowledge. In 2010, 17,000 visitors came to see the wide range of products and services presented by 250 exhibitors. Figures that the hosts NürnbergMesse and BAG WfbM expect to reach again in 2011.

Special European guest country in 2011 will be Croatia. Nine workshops for adapted work from different locations in the country will present their concepts and products to a large number of visitors. The different workshops for adapted work are also interested in establishing new business relationships.

For this occasion, BAG WfbM will cooperate closely with OSVIT, the umbrella association representing round 80 workshops for adapted work in Croatia. The aim of this association is to promote the vocational training, the professional rehabilitation and the employment of persons with disabilities in Croatia. As this country is a Member State Candidate for the European Union, the association follows further important objectives, such as:
