The Italia Invita is basically a huge trade show in Parma, Italy. It was originally a specialized conference on embroidery and lace. It now has expanded to include patchwork, quilting, felting, knitting and crochet, weaving, straw work and other techniques. Thus there are a large number of exhibitors and many courses, workshops and ateliers. The only lace-related ones I could find are the ateliers:
