Went here for an automotive parts show. Place is very small but easy to get to. Needs better food selection and training of staff. I think one guy was trying to get some money out of me for information on getting into the show. My entrance was free!

I sort of felt like "nothing to see here". Go here only if there is something at the venue that you are in fact interested in seeing.

Excellent modern facility that competes well with any convention center in the world. Good hotels right across the road (Westin and Hilton) are super convenient

I visit there with my friends after a long tiring week. Its a good place if you are looking for traditional handicrafts and local cuisines. There are good options for food and shopping. We reached there around 12 PM and spent 3-4 hrs. This is good place for various fun activities and even most of time they plan stage shows... More

The expo runs on weekends and features native people selling transitional handicrafts. A bit of haggling is required, but you need to know Spanish to be able to do that. Else just relish the street market experience and pick up a good souvenir

I visited the Expo Ferretera. We attended the first day and arrived at the start. They were not quite ready for the 10:00 start, which is annoying, but probable somewhat common. The various rooms were well laid out and organized. Some empty booths. Food was available in the upstairs pavilion which I had not seen before. Food vendors were limited,... More

I visited last year the International Book Fair (Feria International del Libro) hosted by Expo Guadalajara and from my point of view is the second best in the world (after Frankfurt). I found many editors and books from other countries that would be very difficult to find in Mexico, and the Cultural activities where beyond my expectations.
