The principal feature of the fairs organised by Aries is their specialisation. Extra-virgin olive oil, espresso coffee, Prosecco DOC wine are the Italian products to which Olio CapitaleTriestEspresso Expo and Prosecco Show have been dedicated. Events that focus exclusively on a single product.

Events dedicated to foods that are making Trieste’s reputation as a specialised centre at the heart of the extended Europe for fairs of this sort.

The fairs promote local points of excellence, such as the important coffee-making sector in Trieste (TriestEspresso) and the high-quality niche production of Tergeste DOP olive oil (Olio Capitale), but they are able to bring benefits to satellite activities, thanks to the high number of visitors they attract to the area.

The real strength lies in the business meetings between exhibitors and trade operators from abroad, given that all the years of experience Aries can boast in the international reception of foreign delegations and organisation of bilateral meetings is brought to bear in their organisation.
