The Expo Zone is the largest usable area at the Palma Convention Centre, measuring 2,340m2 in full. Since its opening in 2017, it has been the chosen for fifty events, including exhibitions, fairs, major corporate events and large-scale banquets, which undoubtedly makes it the most flexible and multi-purpose space of the convention center, in addition to the only space of these characteristics on the island of Mallorca, perfectly complemented by the rest of the spaces to give full coverage to events of large volume and complexity.
Nearly 70,000 people have visited the Expo, which has held such outstanding events as the world presentation of Volkswagen's T-Roc, international conventions of large companies such as Panasonic or Revlon, gastronomic events such as the Mallorca Degusta Fair or one of the biggest New Year's Eve Gala in Palma, among others.
The Expo stands out for its large surface area, with two different heights and capacity for up to 2,200 people in three different spaces. Natural light enters through the huge windows that also provide views over the Palma seafront. An attractive space for people in the MICE industry set in a huge exhibition room with sea views in Palma de Mallorca, with large glass windows allowing abundant natural light to form ideal spaces for events in Palma Bay.
TaPalma is the tapas & cocktails route in Palma, and this year it will be held from November 25 to 29. In addition, on November 23, two days before the gastronomic route, TaPalma will celebrate the tapas contest at the Palau de Congressos de Palma, for the third year.
