Casino de la exposición

Venue Overview

The Casino de la Exposición is one of the main cultural hubs in the city, it was originally built to host the Sevilla Pavilion for the Ibero-American Exposition in 1929.

It was designed by Valencian architect, Vicente Traver y Tomás in 1926, who replaced Aníbal González in this project. Traver y Tomás used Baroque-style elements both for ornamentation purposes and also throughout the building, including the Casino's main round hall and its columned arcade.

There is a painstakingly varied and comprehensive programme of art exhibitions and other cultural activities, such as book presentations or courses, being held in the Casino all year round.

Some noteworthy events which have been held at this location include the World Chess Championship, Seville European Film Festival and the Flamenco Biennial, among others. Since 2012, the Casino de la Exposición has been the permanent venue for the House of Poets and Literature.

This unique space is located in a strategic spot in Seville, as it is next to the María Luisa Park and the Plaza de España and very close to the major sights, making it the ideal venue for a wide range of events.

The Casino de la Exposición has a large open space under its dome, as well as several adjoining function rooms which make the building highly versatile to house all type of social and cultural events.

The maximum capacity of this venue is 1,100 people. It has private parking for coaches and several public car parks. Access to the premises is adapted for people with disabilities.

This space can be customized for various types of events such as product launches, cocktail receptions, meetings, congresses, conferences, private functions, award ceremonies and tributes, corporate annual general meetings and other gatherings.
