Fun Trade Fairs in Rome

Trade Fairs in Rome

Motorbikes, boats, horses, designer furniture, fashion, jewellery and weddings are just a few of the sectors that are exhibited to the public at fairs in Rome. Check out the events calendar below for a fun day at the fair.

Fiera di Roma / Rome Exhibition Centre

Located on the motorway between the city ring road and Fumicino Airport, the Fiera di Roma is a world class facility. Opened in 2005 Fiera di Roma has build an impressive calendar of events that allow Rome to compete with Milan, Rimini and Bologna as a first choice Italian trade fair destination. The design of the infrastructure allows Fiera di Roma to host several medium-sized events at the same time across its 400,000 meter square expanse. A quarter of this space is external and the ultra modern air-conditioned internal space is divided into 14 pavilions. The easiest way to reach the Rome Exhibition Centre is by train as the facility has its own station with a regular service running from Termini Train Station.

Palazzo dei congressi

Located in the 1930s EUR district, the historic Palazzo dei Congressi is a fine example of rationalist architecture. The building makes heavy use of marble in large open spaces to combine modern and classical styles. Decorating the interior is the Fuksas cloud. This massive piece of award winning modern art was designed by the architect who oversaw recent renovation of the venue. Smaller trade fairs, congresses, conferences and exhibitions are very much at home in this swish environment. EUR Congressi Roma is connected with metro B to the centre of the city. A taxi ride is about 15 Euro.
