Prague Trade Fairs in 2018 (Part 2)

Jaké veletrhy nabízí Výstaviště Holešovice v roce 2018 na podzim a v zimě?

Each large city hosts a number of trade fairs. Prague is no exception in this regard, offering a variety of these busy social events taking place in a number of fairgrounds including Výstaviště Praha (Prague Exhibition Grounds) in Holešovice and PVA EXPO in Letňany. While the first volume of this miniseries focused on trade fairs taking place in early 2018, this article takes a peek at programs of those Prague trade fairs that happen in the autumn and winter months.

Easy to reach by public transport

More information about PVA EXPO including how to go there is available in our earlier article about spring fairs and exhibitions in Prague.

Getting to Holešovice from Břetislavka by public transport is very easy. The journey, which goes via Nádraží Podbaba (Podbaba Station), only takes about 30 minutes (bus lines 116 and 355). Get off at Nádraží Podbaba and take the train to Praha-Holešovice. You can either walk the remaining few hundred metres or take the tram (line 6). Just the tram will also get you from Nádraží Podbaba to the exhibition grounds (Výstaviště Holešovice stop) but you’ll need to change at Strossmayerovo náměstí (Strossmayer Square).

Autumn and winter fairs at Holešovice Exhibition Grounds

The nearest fair (October 11-13) to take place in Holešovice is PRAGOLIGNA. This is an exhibition of machinery, tools, equipment and materials for the wood-processing, iron and steel industry.

Cosmetics and beauty products

INTERBEAUTY is an international cosmetics and beauty products fair taking place between November 9 and 10. If cosmetics, wellness, and healthy lifestyle interest you, mark the event in your calendar so you won’t miss the latest trends. What is more, this is the only fair in Europe where you can have your birthmarks checked by a dermatoscope for free as part of a melanoma prevention campaign (free medical consultation services will also be available).

Organic food fair

At exactly the same time (Nov 9-11), the exhibition grounds are also to host BIOSTYL. This is an international fair for healthy food, healthy lifestyle, and ecological products and services.

Children’s fair

Getting Christmas gifts for children can be so difficult. If you’re also pondering over what to purchase for your little ones, late November and early December is the time for you to head for Holešovice. The reason is a fair called DĚTSKÁ PLANETA (CHILDREN’S PLANET) is taking place there. On show will be a stunningly wide variety of toys and games for children which you can buy right on the spot. Come over and be inspired. It’s worth it!

The most popular fairs hosted by PVA EXPO

PVA Expo in Letňany hosts a number of exhibitions and fairs every week. Below are those tips we believe you may find the most attractive.

Future Forces Forum

If you’re interested in the world of armed and security forces, we recommend Future Forces Forum 2018, an exciting exhibition taking place between October 17 and 19, 2018.

The world of toys, games and amusement

Letňany dedicates the last weekend in October (25. – 28. 10. 2018) to the world of amusement. FOR GAMES, FOR BABIES, FOR TOYS, MODEL HOBBY and TVOŘIVÝ SVĚT (CREATIVE WORLD) are fairs that have built a solid reputation presenting the most exciting new arrivals to amuse young and old alike.

The world of hemp/cannabis

CANNAFEST PRAGUE 2018, which takes place between November 2 and 4, is the largest fair of its kind in the world. Over 280 exhibitors are to present their hemp and herbs, cultivation methods, fertilizers, and accessories for smokers.

A festival of audiovisual experiences

IMAGINATION FESTIVAL, which takes place between November 24 and 25, 2018, is the largest indoor festival focusing on drum & bass and harder styles. The festival seeks to connect modern electronic genres of music and unique audiovisual experiences.

The world of dog pets

The most adorable “man’s best friends” are heading for PVA EXPO on December 2, 2018. The exhibition will be a great chance to purchase a variety of products for dog owners including dog food and treats.

A men’s exhibition and fair

EROTICKÝ VELETRH (yes, you guess it, EROTIC FAIR) takes place between December 7 and 9 together with MEN EXPO 2018. In addition to all things erotic visitors have a chance to embark on an inspiring journey into the world of men’s needs and wishes. This is the very first and uncompromisingly unique festival that is sure to make men have an unforgettable time.

Christmas fairs

Christmas gifts and decorations is what December 13-16 is to be all about. There’s a rich program prepared for you so make sure you turn up. Alone, as a couple, or with a whole family. If you fall in love with an exhibit, you can support it by voting for it – and perhaps help it to become the star of the fair (the results are to be announced at the very end of the event).

Also, this is the first year you can purchase attractive cut-price cycling gifts. On Friday, the hall is to turn into MAGNETIC FESTIVAL, a gigantic dance club with the best contemporary star DJs. In contrast, Saturday will also be dedicated to gluten-free products which you can taste as well as buy directly from the exhibitors.

The Břetislavka Residence team wish you warming and soothing, if a little cold, autumn days in Prague.

Below is a short list of some of them.

    Strategic location

    The exhibitions grounds have been built in a strategic place. They are easily accesible both by car and public transport. The nearest metro station is the line C terminus Letňany. It takes under 10 minutes to get to the grounds from the station on foot. When travelling by car, all you need to do is follow the sings as you approach Prague on the near D8 motorway from Teplice, Dresden a Berlin. Finally, PVA EXPO is about 20 minutes away from the Prague International Airport.
