MÉRIDA, Yucatán, (December 11, 2021).- Work for people with disabilities is often scarce in Yucatán and because of this the Inclusive Entrepreneurship Fair for People with Disabilities will be held, seeking to support this sector of society.

The director of the Institute for the Inclusion of People with Disabilities in Yucatán (Iipedey), María Teresa Vázquez Baqueiro, explained that the event seeks to create alliances between society, government and private initiative for the benefit of the sector.

When Will The Inclusive Entrepreneurship Fair Take Place? 

The event will take place from December 13 to 22 and in coordination with the Yucatecan Institute of Entrepreneurs (IYEM) and the ADO Foundation, which will provide the space of the Centro Histórico station, formerly CAME, for exhibitors.

It is expected that throughout the 10 days that the event will last, around 30 exhibitors from various municipalities such as Mérida, Motul, Ticul, Muna, Umán and Progreso will participate with items such as syrups, hammocks, tablets and chocolate sweets, textiles, mud, among others.

“These are dates of high mobility and visits, and people with disabilities or organizations of people with disabilities can present the products they make as a way to promote entrepreneurship and business opportunities for people with disabilities,” she explained.

In Yucatán, she explained, that the Iipedey has a registry of 10 institutions that work with people with disabilities that are dedicated to the development of various products to market. 

The activity will be open to the general public, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., in the aforementioned venue, located on Calle 69 between 68 and 70. For more information, the Iipedey phone number is available, (999) 930 33 40, extension 23052, and the cell phone (999) 635 83 71, from Monday to Friday, between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.
