FORUM PA was born in 1990 as a simple exhibition. During the years, FORUM PA changed its role and today the exhibition is a real moment for debate and meeting that lasts all year. It is the main occasion for all professional communities and all innovation actors, belonging to FORUM PA networks, to meet.

Today FORUM PA is not just a showcase for the best experiences, sometimes too much isolated, but it represents an important observatory on changes, an integrated public communication project, a place where it’s possible to aggregate processes and innovative networks that, beginning from the exhibition, spread on web and territory.

FORUM PA takes place each year in May at Fiera di Roma.
