Lingotto Fiere, the exhibition and congress center of Turin and Piedmont, is the only fully privately-owned expo hub in Italy, managed by GL events Italia, a subsidiary of the french GL event group. One of the leading player at global level in the exhibition industry, GL events provides integrated solutions and services for events, covering the three main segments of the market: conferences and conventions; cultural, sporting and social events; trade shows and exhibitions.
The market leadership of GL events is bolstered by its 300 proprietary trade fairs in the most disparate of sectors and by a network of more than 50 venues, encompassing conference centres, exhibition centres, concert halls and multi-function sites, located in the main cities in France and a large number of international destinations in Europe, Asia and South America.
In Italy since 2007, GL events is present in Turin thanks to the management of Lingotto Fiere . This hub born in 1992 was the result of the transformation of an iconic site that had been synonymous with Italy’s industrial history – the former FIAT plant, from which it takes its name.
