Federcongressi&eventi is the national association of companies, institutions and professionals operating in activities relating to the conferences and events sector.

Banco Alimentare, Italy’s food bank network, pursues social aims by collecting the production surplus of the food supply chain, from the agricultural, industrial, large-scale retail and catering sectors and redistributing it to organisations that provide support and help to the poor, the marginalised and in general anyone in need.
Equoevento [Fair Event] is the first organisation in Italy seeking to solve the problem of food waste in the events sector. Created in 2014, the organisation has grown rapidly thanks to a network of young volunteers, and in less than a year has staged more than 100 “fair events”, with more than 30,000 meals collected, and over 20 beneficiary charities, including foster homes, soup kitchens and refugee centres.
