On its 12th edition, the Fair changes the habits of the small city of 25 thousand inhabitants, doubling the number of people and allotting 90% of the hotels' capacity, assuring the income or restaurants, tourism and local commerce.

For some editions, ABIT has been supporting FENIN bringing international journalists and buyers through Texbrasil, a program developed together with Apex-Brazil.

In 2004, for example, the Fair gathered 398 exhibitors and 22 thousand buyers. On the following year, 2005, it went to 480 exhibitors and 31 thousand national and international buyers.

In 2006, the growth of 13% visitors - 35 thousand - pointed out FENIN as being the biggest confection fair of the country.
