Early in January we opened a third venue in Sweden, Åbymässan.
Serving the economically dynamic Gothenburg metropolitan area and perfectly located just a few minutes from the city centre, Åbymässan is Sweden’s latest and most innovative facility for exhibitions, trade fairs, congresses and conferences. It offers 10 500m2 of highly customisable floor space and technical support for event organisers, simple logistics for exhibitors, and convenience for all visitors.
We now have venues (owned or under Easyfairs management) in Sweden’s three principal cities of Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmö. In Belgium we have a network of four venues – Flanders Expo, Antwerp Expo, Namur Expo and Nekkerhal Brussels North. And in the Netherlands, we have three venues: Hardenberg in the north, Venray to the east and Gorinchem to the west.
The principal objective of our venues is to serve as a flexible and low-risk platform for launching and hosting our own events. Easyfairs is, first and foremost, an events business. When we refurbish and extend the capacity of our existing venues, as we have done recently in Gorinchem and Antwerp Expo, or open further venues, as with Åbymässan, it is primarily with the intention of better serving communities with our own events. This may also involve developments that enable us to host new event formats.
Antwerp Expo reopened early in 2019 with a new look, an exciting new infrastructure and a refreshed website, completely in line with our company slogan. Truly ready to visit the future!
Of course, we welcome other organisers who host separate “guest” events. These include traditional trade shows, festivals, concerts and sporting fixtures.
