Trade Fair

Social Enterprise & Co-operative Trade Fair


Friday 14 September | 10.30am - 4pm | Broadgate, Coventry City Centre

2012 is a special year for everyone at Coventry & Warwickshire CDA; we're commemorating our 30th anniversary and it's also the UN International Year of Co-operatives. 

We’re inviting everyone to join the celebrations at our Social Enterprise and Co-operative Trade Fair on 14 September in Coventry City Centre.

Taking place in a marquee, it's a free event, open to the public

There will be over 30 social enterprise and co-op stall holders on the day selling a range of products and services including beauty treatments, books, hand crafted jewellery and textiles, t-shirts, plants, works of arts, independent living aids, dance and performing arts classes, holidays and energy and financial services. Plus you can enjoy fair trade coffee, sandwiches and cakes at our pop up café. 

Experts will be on hand to provide free energy saving, healthy eating and business advice. Children and families will be able to participate in interactive games and arts and craft activities.    

The event is a big 'thank you' to our many clients and supporters, staff and directors (past and present) - a chance to recognise and reflect on our collective achievements.

We hope to welcome you on the day!
