A large-scale event that brings Thessaloniki at the epicenter of the national and international interest for a week.

The International Fair of Thessaloniki is the biggest commercial fair in Greece and one of the most significant in the south-east European region. It dates since 1926 and is an integral part of the city's history during the years. Its operation was temporarily suspended during the war and there were some ups and downs at the level of success during the years but in the last decades, it can show a permanent growth.

The fair is taking place very close to the city center of Thessaloniki next to the university campus of the city. The so-called TIF-HELEXPO Exhibition Center that hosts the fair covers a total area of 180.000 square meters. This complex of facilities includes 17 large pavilions which correspond to 62.000 square meters of indoor exhibition areas, while parallel to that there are numerous conference centers, parking areas, agency offices, sport, and recreational facilities, museums, banks, and many others.

Apart from the thousands of visitors who travel to Thessaloniki during the period of the International Fair due to business and job reasons, the event attracts many politicians but also a great number of recreational guests. More specifically, the Thessaloniki Fair is related to the official announcements of the Greek prime minister for the budget and the strategy of the upcoming season. While the numerous concerts and happenings transform the city to a worth-visiting big party place.
