Expo Tel Aviv (formerly the Israel Trade Fairs and Convention Center (Hebrew: מרכז הירידים והקונגרסים בישראל‎) and later the Tel Aviv Convention Center (Hebrew: מרכז הירידים - תל אביב‎), although commonly referred to locally as Ganei HaTaarucha (Exhibition Gardens, Hebrew: גני התערוכה‎) and also as the Tel Aviv Fairgrounds) is a fairground and convention center in north Tel Aviv. It was first opened in 1932 as "Yarid HaMizrach" located at the site of the Levant Fair at Tel Aviv Port. The fairgrounds were moved to their present location at 101 Rokach Boulevard (near the Yarkon Park and Tel Aviv University) in 1959.

It is also called Ganei HaTa'arukha, meaning: The Fair Gardens. In September 2018, it was rebranded as "EXPO Tel Aviv".[5]

The location hosts up to 2.5 million visitors and has between 45 and 60 major events annually. The fairground has ten halls and pavilions and a large outdoor space including an amusement park.
