Upgraded and expanded logistics
The largest exhibition center in the country, Romexpo, went through a modernization process in 2017, by making available two new pavilions and one multifunctional pavilion dedicated to related services, the value of the investment reaching more than RON 127 million.
Thus, the exhibition area was expanded, with over 30,000 square meters and is complemented by a multifunctional space which has conference rooms, a coffee shop and a welcoming and information area for the participants at the events.
“In its 50 years of existence, the Romexpo Exhibition Center has undergone various stages of arranging and modernization.
In 2016, an ambitious development and modernization program was launched. We started by opening the gates for Bucharest, planning to make Romexpo the center of the great urban recreation. The need to develop these premises has naturally came, as a result of the increasing number of domestic and international requests, since more and more companies wished to present their products and services at the most important fairs and exhibitions organized both by Romexpo, such as Indagra, BIFE-SIM, the Romanian Tourism Fair, Construct Expo, Ambient Expo and Cosmetics Beauty Hair, and by third party companies who organize events” stated the Romexpo General Manager, Mihai Costris.
CITY HUB and new elements of modernity inside Romexpo
Modernizing the Romexpo Exhibition Center doesn’t mean only new pavilions, but also a coworking space dedicated to the start-up businesses, namely to the young entrepreneurs, especially those operating in the field of the creative industries.

Within the Romexpo Exhibition Center, the B entry (Expozitiei Boulevard) has been also modernized by expanding the pedestrian access and by reorganizing the car access. The adjacent green areas has been also revitalized.
The modernization plan of the “Romexpo city” also included the exhibition pavilions H1, H2 and H3, dedicated to activities that are complementary to the exhibition activities. Pavilion P was transformed, through an investment of RON 4.5 million, in a space dedicated to the activities that are specific to a car and car after-sales maintenance showroom.
