About us


Fiera Milano Exhibitions Africa (FMEA) was founded in South Africa in 2012, where Fiera Milano S.p.A acquired 75% of the Good Food & Wine Show.  Since 2015, Fiera Milano S.p.A, a listed company, has attained 100% ownership of the South Africa branch.

Now under the leadership of the new global CEO, Mr Peraboni, a key new strategy to build and expand operations, includes the FMEA branch becoming Fiera Milano S.p.A.’s springboard into Africa.

The newly appointed General Manager of FMEA, Maria Chieppa, is responsible to spearhead the projects and team to implement the overall business growth.

FMEA produces premium business to consumer; business to business events exhibitions; and conferences.

The quality portfolios includes:

  • Good Food & Wine Show now in its 18th edition
    • Cape Town 2-4 June 2017
    • Johannesburg 28-30 July 2017
    • Durban 27-29 October 2017
  • Cape Town Art Fair, fifth edition, 16-18 February 2018

FMEA is in the family of Italy’s top conferences and exhibitions company, Fiera Milano S.p.A.  Exhibitions, events and conferences (both trade & consumer) are powerful marketing tools for host cities and countries.  FMEA’s new strategy will ultimately strengthen and support economic growth in South Africa through the attraction of international FMEA clients, industry associations, chambers of commerce, and business partners to the regions it operates in.

Fiera Milano is the leading exhibition Group in Italy and one of the top in the world.

Expertise, excellence in professional exhibitions and services and cutting edge facilities, as well as its success in the foremost international conference management, all make Fiera Milano the ideal partner for promotion, development and internationalisation of any company.
Fiera Milano helps companies expand their business opportunities in Italy and abroad; communicate most effectively with reference markets; nurture human capital through continual professional training; share knowledge at high profile conferences.
