The City of Lugano recognizes the importance of developing its fair and congress hub, which represents one of city’s growth and development models. Different projects are now being assessed so as to renew infrastructures, adapting them to the most vanguard requirements of both national and international exhibitors. As to the area of Campo Marzio Nord, where the pavilions are located at the moment, an international competition has already been launched for restructuring the area in order to extend the congress and fair offer. At present, the project is being updated. As to the new pavilions of the main fair, their insertion within the context of the New Cornaredo Neighbourhood is being assessed; in this case they would be located near the exit of the
Vedeggio-Cassarate tunnel, a town planning project that wants to requalify a large area North of the city.
