Our Story

The fair tradition of Tricity dates back to 1947. Then, the Gdańsk International Fair organized a trade fair event in August presenting Poland’s export opportunities. The exhibition included, among others: food industry, sailing, folk art and crafts.

More than 40 years after this event, efforts were made to create a significant trade fair center in Gdańsk. The result came on February 16, 1989 in the form of the Międzynarodowe Targi Gdańskie (Gdańsk International Fair).

Initially, the company did not have its own exhibition facilities. In the years 1990-1993, the fair was organized in rented sports facilities: Hala Olivia, Hala AWF and GKS Wybrzeże. Since 1994, fairs and events have been organized at the Trade Fair Center at ul. Beniowski in Oliwa.

Since 2012, the headquarters of the Gdańsk International Fair has been the AMBEREXPO Exhibition and Congress Center. Modern infrastructure of the facility located at ul. Żaglowa in Letnica enables the implementation of various economic, social and cultural events. We specialize in organizing local, national and international events: fairs, exhibitions, congresses, conferences, events, concerts, as well as fairs and outdoor events.

The calendar of events organized by the Gdańsk International Fair includes highly valued events such as:
AMBERIF International Amber and Jewelry Fair, TRAKO International Railway Fair, BALTEXPO International Maritime Fair and Conferences, POLFISH International Fish and Food Fair, URODA Fair and Festival.

In 2023, AMBEREXPO hosted, among others: EuroSkills 2023 – the eighth edition of the European Championships in professional skills for 600 competitors from 32 countries, competing in 43 disciplines, and the first edition of the Inside Seaside music festival, attended by over 12,000 people.

Since 1996, the Gdańsk International Fair has also been organizing the Christmas Fair in Gdańsk, famous in Poland and abroad, which took the honorable 2nd place in the Best Christmas Markets in Europe 2023 plebiscite, and the St. Dominic’s Fair, the 763rd edition of which takes place in 2023, gathered 760 exhibitors and 1.2 million visitors.
