Fiera Bergamo is a large center with driving force and flexibility, able to host events of different nature; cultural, artistic and sporting events, able to evolve, expand and transform in order to be competitive with the main provincial and regional fairgrounds.
The structure is inspired by the great European fair examples – multipurpose exhibiting spaces to be used throughout the year with a ground floor structure, equipped with medium size pavilions, conference rooms and spaces for catering – thus reinforcing the dialogue with Europe, the largest user of products from Bergamo and, at the same time, the one with the old “stone fair”, in its dimension of space as territorial and European interchange.
