May 14th, official opening ceremony of International Exhibition and Convention Centre EXPO Krakow

Targi w Krakowie have just moved to a brand new venue International Exhibition and Convention Centre EXPO Krakow. The official opening ceremony took place on Thursday, May 14th. EXPO-Kraków has been created for organizers of exhibitions, congresses, conferences and all kinds of events. The modern and multifunction EXPO-Kraków will hold both events from the Exhibition Calendar but also those proposed by external entities. – The Book Fair, which is the largest event of this type in Poland, was visited by 40 thousand people last year. Our trade exhibitions, like KRAKDENT® Dentistry Fair, enjoy such popularity that we are not able to accommodate everyone. We are planning many different exhibitions and theme events which will meet the expectations of inhabitants of Kraków, Małopolska, the whole country and international exhibitors and visitors. The interest in our venue exceeded our wildest expectations – said Grażyna Grabowska, CEO of Targi w Krakowie, last year. The preparation of documentation necessary to launch the construction process took almost four years. But the largest venue of this kind in the Southern Poland was constructed at an express speed – the construction itself… only nine months! The value of the investment is estimated at PLN 70 million.
The most important advantage of the venue will be its multifunctionality. A large (13 thousand m2) and unlimited space (two pavilions– 4 and 5 thousand m2) will be ideal as an exhibition venue and a conference center. The exhibition pavilion, transformed into an auditorium, will allow for the organization of congresses even for 5 thousand participants. EXPO Kraków all offers a set of air-conditioned, modular conference rooms, a spacious lobby and a restaurant. The private enterprise i.e. Targi w Krakowie, the owner and operator of the new venu, financed 100% of the construction of the access road to the city center. Galicyjska Street, right off Centralna, will allow for convenient access to the centre of town. It is named after the historic name of the region in which Kraków is located and corresponds to the names of various rooms and facilities inside the International Exhibition and Convention Centre EXPO Kraków, i.e. the Galicia Restaurant; the Bratislava, Vienna, Budapest, Prague and Lviv conference rooms and the Vistula and Danube exhibition halls. It is worth mentioning that the investment was completed by the company from Kraków Re-Bau. EXPO will definitely develop the exhibition and congress industry, which may bring new workplaces to the region Source: Targi w Krakowie
