Koinè is the most prestigious trade fair event for the international supply line of the religious sector: a two-yearly event featuring a special synergy between exhibitors and the areas for reflection, conference, debate and professional training.
Koinè was founded in 1989 in Vicenza, at the wishes of Fiera di Vicenza, the Diocese and the Italian Episcopal Conference. In a region where the ecclesiastical community and the public have always worked together in synergy, contributing to the creation of an important cultural and artistic heritage for the church, since its first edition, the innovative concept of Koinè has translated into a unique trade fair event, which combines exhibition with moments of reflection, debate and an in-depth look at liturgy and the architecture of religious buildings.
The event consists of two areas:
Church & Liturgy: A section dedicated to products and services for religious communities, alongside the most innovative solutions for design, restoration, and maintenance (products for liturgy, religious buildings, services and funerary art);
Faith & Worship: An section which presents the most complete offer and the news of the international production of articles and devotional objects addressed to specialized distributors, sanctuaries, and other sector operators (devotional articles, spiritual tourism).
