The Institución Ferial Alicantina (IFA) is a trade fair organiser that holds around 20 fairs a year in the automotive, footwear, retail, beauty and comic sectors. These events attract a total of more than 300,000 visitors a year.
Inside the venue is the IFA Arena, a multifunctional pavilion with a capacity of more than 15,000 spectators, making it the largest pavilion in the whole of Valencia.
The Alicante Trade Fair Institution offers all its visitors a 90,000 square metre space with more than 3,000 parking spaces. Thus, users who want to attend by car will have a space where to park it.
If the entry and exit time is less than 15 minutes, the parking will be free of charge. On the other hand, parking all day in the IFA Arena car park costs €3.
Another option to park your vehicle is to park outside the IFA Arena. Just a 5 minute drive from the venue is Torrellano, a small village in the municipality of Elche.
You can park your car in the streets of Torrellano for free and take the bus line 90 Crevillente - Alicante, which stops at the IFA.
In the opposite direction is Alicante Airport, which serves as an alternative to leave your car parked. It is only 7 minutes away from the IFA Arena.
