PRESENTATION

The Tenerife International Centre for Trade Fairs and Congresses, located in the expansion area of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, has become the new image of the capital鈥檚 southern entrance. Its strategic position combines ease of access and fast motorway communication with Tenerife鈥檚 two airports, the port and any point on the island.

This enormous enclosure鈥攄esigned by architect and engineer Santiago Calatrava and commissioned by the Cabildo Insular de Tenerife (Tenerife Island Council)鈥攊ts modern infrastructure and equipment, as well as a wide range of services, make this multi-purpose arena the perfect place for business, cultural, sports and leisure activities.

The Trade Fair Centre, which presides over the Avenida de la Constituci贸n, opposite the leisure complex of Parque Mar铆timo C茅sar Manrique, completes the economic and social proposal of an area that also houses the Law Courts, Palmetum (Palm Tree Gardens) and the new Auditorium.

1.- GRAN NAVE

The enclosure鈥檚 main building houses the Gran Nave and the foyers. Located on the top floor, the harmonious design of the Gran Nave in glass, iron and concrete provides the perfect venue for commercial fairs, and great sporting and musical events. This covered area, the largest in the Canary Islands, is spread over 12,000 spacious square metres (no columns, partitions or walls) and is also one of the largest halls of these characteristics in Europe. With a total length of 190 metres, it is 70 metres wide and around 20 metres high and can hold up to 15,000 people.

2.- EDIFICIO Z脫CALO

Edificio Z贸calo is at ground level and houses the 3,800 metre sloping multi-purpose hall. It can be used for many activities, including fairs, shows, music events, exhibitions, congresses, conventions and cocktails.

Edificio Z贸calo also incorporates an area adapted for congresses, which encompasses a main hall, with a capacity for 334 people, and several adjoining halls with dividing screens, making this a highly versatile area.

3.- EDIFICIO ANEXO

Edificio Anexo is located on the north side of the Gran Nave and is connected by an enormous inside arch, measuring 50 metres in length. The natural stone front is triangular. This section houses the offices of Tenerife Tourism Corporation (SPET).
