Rural Vision Week - Imagining the future of Europe's rural areas

'Our Rural' Marketplace

‘OUR RURAL’ Marketplace will host an exciting variety of stalls from a wide range of stakeholders who want to share their key activities and display their messages for developing the Long-Term Vision for Rural Areas until 2040.

There are two ways to get the most out of the Marketplace.

Firstly, you will find the virtual stalls listed below and also on the Marketplace section of the ENRD website.

You will be free to browse the many stalls, finding out more information about the stall holders through a variety of different materials such as, videos, images, text, audio clips, news articles and suggestions for deeper reading. You will also find the contact details for each stall holder and links to relevant websites. The Marketplace stalls will be available to the public during Rural Vision Week and will remain open after the event.

Secondly, each stall has nominated a number of ‘Ambassadors’ who are available, at certain time slots throughout Rural Vision Week, to discuss their stall and give more details on the content. As a registered participant to Rural Vision Week you will be able to book a One-to-One meeting with an Ambassador, hosted through the B2match platform.

Below you can see who will be exhibiting along with their Ambassadors!
