The yearly International Autumn Fair is Zagreb's most important fair. Held in the Zagreb Fair Grounds, this event takes place in mid-September and draws over a million visitors and exhibitors each year. In fact the fair is a conglomeration of a number of specialized exhibitions spanning industry, science, tourism and agriculture. In addition, it's a venue for businesspeople to network and explore opportunities with a regular schedule of conferences, seminars and forums.
The main "mini fairs" within the Autumn Fair are:
Transport and Logistics involving the movement of goods and services
Eco-Ethno showcasing rural products with tastings and demonstrations
Energetics involving metalworking and mechanical engineering
Fashion Days which is self-explanatory
Arca showcasing new products and inventions
Accommodation is at a premium during this fair. It's vital to reserve in advance. The most convenient would be hotels near the fair grounds and Zagreb airport but there are cheaper budget hotels in Zagreb. Be aware that accommodation prices often double during this period.
