Attend Guadalajara Book Fair each year. Surprisingly organized for Mexico with fast ticket entrance, security checks, and easy access to spaces with small food courts upstairs and on entrance level. Booths always well organized with enough space in pedestrian corridors to not feel crowded.

I love to visit the book fair. 700 000+ visitors per years says everything. The expo center is busy all year-but is in FIL when the magic happens. People from all around the world gather for the pleasure of reading. Just gorgeous!

Great big building and excellent organising. I visited the Expo due to the International Astronautical Congress 2016 and everything was nice. The restaurants proposed were great. Unfortunately I didnt try the catering.

This place is huge. The only event that uses the entire facility is FIL, every November. It has a few restaurants and has lots of hotels nearby. If you come to an event, you would be within walking distance to everything you need.

Boring expo's in a boring part of town - if you are looking for hotel in Guadalajara - unless you are visiting an expo - don't stay in this zone.

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.
