The GEM Fair

The 2018 GEM Fair, presented by Union Bank & Trust, is now history. Held each year at James Madison University, the Global Entrepreneurship Marketplace Fair brings together Mini-Economies from throughout the area for a simulated international marketplace.

Here’s TV3’s coverage of the event, and here’s the Daily News-Record’s story (with photos).

The venue is JMU’s Festival Conference Center. Each year’s planned events include a Roll Call of the Mini-Economy nations, market session, and awards ceremony. The date for next year’s GEM Fair has already been set: March 6, 2019.
