The Exhibition Building, completed in 1971, has been renovated and extended on various occasions. Its initial 4,500 m2, from inception up to the present day, have grown three-fold, reaching the current 14,500 m2. In 2003, the last of the six pavilions forming the exhibition centre was completed. An enlargement that went hand in hand with the Fair’s economic growth, and the resulting search for new spaces to use or adapt to the evolving exhibition requirements. All the complex’s pavilions interconnect and can be used either separately or as a single space. Thanks to the flexibility and quality of its services, the Fair is ready to welcome different kindsof events: business meetings, seminars, sports matches, art exhibitions and specialized fairs. The complex also hosts an equipped congress
hall able to seat up to 200 people, and two other small rooms for up to 50 seats. A building close by hosts the offices and self service restaurant. Inside the grounds, the Fair has parking facilities that can accommodate 450 carsnfor exhibitors only, plus unroofed parking spaces able to host 2,000 cars.
