The history of trade fairs in Bologna, or rather, of the “Fiera”, begins in 1888 when the city hosted the Esposizione Emiliana (The Emilia Exhibition), the first ever trade fair for the Emilia region, at the Giardini Margherita (The Margherita Gardens). After this came the 1901 Trade Fair, and later the trade exhibitions at the new Littoriale stadium in the Twenties, and so forth.

Summing up, the history of the  Bologna Trade Fair Exhibition Centre goes hand in hand with the recent history of the city itself, which proves how strong and vibrant their connection has always been.

Today, the  Bologna Trade Fair Exhibition Centre is one of the most cutting-edge trade fair centres in Europe, considering that it rises over a total area of about 375,000 square metres, hosting an average of almost 30 shows each year for a total visitor market of about 1.700,000 attendants.

Furthermore, this is the first Trade Fair Centre to have its own priority motorway exit, making it even easier and faster to reach from Hotel Caselle, an affordable hotel for the Bologna Trade Fair Exhibition Centre which, as we’ve already mentioned several times, is just outside the San Lazzaro di Savena motorway entry.

Stay at our hotel and make the most of the large parking area included in the price - ideal for exhibitors travelling with vans or buses - and of the free Wi-Fi Internet connection: this is where you can discover that being affordable doesn’t mean being uncomfortable.
