The International Technical Fair in Plovdiv (International Technical Fair ITF) is one of the largest exhibition events in Southeast Europe. Every year more than two thousand Bulgarian and foreign participants from almost 60 countries present here a wide range of new technological achievements, inventions and innovative projects.
The first industrial and agricultural fair in Bulgaria took place back in 1892 in Plovdiv. Since then, the city of Plovdiv has been associated, first of all, with this fair, which over time has turned into an international one.
For some time now, it has been held in Plovdiv twice a year - at the beginning of May and at the end of September. In May, there is a consumer goods and technology fair (the latest news in the light and food industry), and in September, a technical fair for industrial technologies and machines.
