The Exhibition Centre is located in the area of Campo Marzio, in the Cassarate district of Lugano. Campo Marzio has inherited the city's centuries-old tradition as seat of fairs and exhibitions. Since 1933 the area has hosted the agricultural-industrial fair (later called the Swiss Fair of Lugano), an annual exhibition of economic and cultural promotion of national importance. The promoters' desire for a stable location led to the construction in 1948 of the Conza Pavilion (MAC 6) and later the other 6 pavilions. Today the Exhibition Centre is located a short distance from the University of Lugano (USI), the Palazzo dei Congressi and the Foce cultural centre.
