Bulgaria Honored Country

The 87th Thessaloniki International Fair occurs from Saturday, September 9, to Sunday, September 17, 2023.
The venue is in the city center with three different entrances: One from the south at Stratou Avenue and two from the north at Egnatia Avenue. This year, Bulgaria is the honored country. As you enter from the southern fair entrance, you just have to walk up and to the left to pavilion 13. Bulgarian businesses showed significant enthusiasm for participating in the Thessaloniki International Fair right from the outset. In this regard, they are set to engage in numerous B2B meetings with Greek companies, and the total count of these meetings is expected to surpass 1,000. Check the description tab for a link to a map of the floor plan of all pavilions.

Zero Emission

Achieving zero emissions is a crucial goal for combating climate change and preserving the environment. Inside the fair, you can get a glimpse of the new electric public buses that will operate in Thessaloniki. However, if you take a closer look, as we did, you'll notice that this particular featured bus is equipped with the ACTV Venice ticket machine! Naturally, there are also many electric cars on display.

International Exhibitors

This year's event boasts 18 international participants, including the Honoured Country, Bulgaria. Notably, South Korea, Moldova, and Thailand are making their inaugural appearances, while the roster also includes Cyprus, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Vietnam, Uruguay, Ukraine, Armenia, Iran, Italy, Poland, France, Serbia, India, and Nepal.

South Korea World Expo 2030

As we mentioned, South Korea is participating for the first time. Since Busan is a candidate city for the 2030 World Expo, it’s only natural that the pavilion dedicates a prominent space for this reason.

Hellenic Government Pavillions

In general, there are approximately 1,500 exhibitors from both Greece and abroad. The fair aims to showcase an extensive range of both traditional and modern products and services, serving as a platform for some of the most captivating markets in the global economy. The roots of the international fair date back almost 100 years, to the October of 1926, when it welcomed 100,000 visitors. As HELEXPO states, "It reflects the rhythm and atmosphere of domestic and international entrepreneurship while also contributing to the cultural development of Greece by organizing artistic and sports events. Besides that, TIF is the annual 'appointment' between the political leadership and the Greek people, concerning the economy and the political agenda for the year to follow."
Live Music Events

Typically, the ticket entitles you to free entrance to Live Music Events. This year, due to the tragic events following the floods in Central Greece, it wasn't clear if these events would take place. The designated area, as you can see, is just below the large arch at the south entrance, where a stage is set up. Just a bit above that area, you can also visit the MOMus museum.


MOMus stands for The Metropolitan Organization of Museums of Visual Arts of Thessaloniki. It was born from the merger of four Thessaloniki-based museums and art venues, which is why it covers areas ranging from Photography to Modern Art. The HELEXPO premises house the Contemporary Museum, while the others are located in the city's port area and to the west at the former site of the Lazaristes Monastery.

Thessaloniki in the collections

The 2nd Collectibles' EXPO is a fair dedicated to coins, banknotes, stamps, medals, decorations, phone cards, maps, books, journals, toys, discs, watches, postcards, photographs, philatelic history, and other collectibles. You can find it in Pavilion 6 of the Nations. We particularly appreciate the featured exhibition 'Thessaloniki in the Collections,' which showcases the city's history and civilization through collectibles such as stamps, coins, banknotes, medals, paintings, engravings, folk art, and more.
