This is an impressive place, several events were happening at once. Despite severe heat outside, the building stayed cool. The facilities were modern and clean. It was our first time at an event here and we were very impressed.

This is a very large area with more than one arena for major events. I try to be here in October for the Expo Ganadero - Like a big County Fair with 4H club. Lots of livestock to see and events including judging the livestock and Horse Dancing at least once during the three to four week event.

I was part of the Tianguis Turistico 2016 that just happened at the expo and it was amazing. Space is great and location is amazing in Guadalajara, so close to everything. This even happens once a year and this was its first time in Guadalajara and hope it happens here again, it was really amazing!

Lots of Hotels nearby to stay at, really good for any kind of convention. Very big place ! Easy to access by main road. Only down side is the fact that their is not a lot of restaurant from a walking distance.

Over the years I have been to Exposition Centers throughout the US, the UK, several in France and even in the Middle East, the Guadalajara EXPO is well laid out and easily divides into usable sections. In fact I have been to simultaneous expositions here, a gift show and bridal show at the same time. The anual FIL, the second... More

The convention center is as good as any and hosts, among other events, the annual book fair (FIL). Nearby hotels and Uber or taxi access link the airport and nearby hotels. All's fine but the main intersection is chaotic and dangerous. Police try to take control with limited success.

Great space and plenty of entry points. Could have more bathrooms and bigger ones as well. No food service will need to go outside. Parking is limited.
