Across Europe, new exhibition center developments show remarkable differences in spatial locations. Whereas exhibition centers were traditionally sited at central sections within metropolitan regions, a large part of the new generation of venues is located outside of the continuous urban fabric in what can be called ‘suburban’ or ‘peripheral’ locations. This recent development is part of a broader discussion on the changing periphery in the 21st century metropolis. Rick Vermeulen examines and seeks to explain the drivers behind different investment decisions from the perspective of the exhibition center.
