Genoa’s exhibition center, located in the heart of the city and overlooking the sea was built in the early 1960s thanks to a complex filling operation. The overall project was developed by the urban project engineer Luigi Carlo Daneri. The current exhibition area includes the Blue Pavilion designed by Atelier Jean Nouvel and large open spaces, a tensile structure on the sea and two large marinas able to accommodate boats measuring up to 80 meters.
The Blue Pavilion, opened in 2009, is a multistory structure with two floors of exhibition space and an intermediate floor with conference rooms, service areas and offices. The total exhibition space available corresponds to 20,000 square meters. The extensive use of glass surfaces and mirror-like ceilings perfectly integrates the building with the sea water surrounding it.
The marina in front of the Blue Pavillion measuring in total nearly 40,000 square meters offers 200 berths lined up on two docks one of which presents an elevated panoramic walkway. A modern tensile structure measuring 9,000 square meters completes the area together with a service building hosting nautical activities, self-service bar and panoramic restaurant.
The second marina used for the International Boat Shows extends over 60,000 square meters of water surface and includes an adjacent square measuring 12,500 square meters.
