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.

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.
