The plot that would host the Expo in a strict sense has a surface area of 250,000 m2 and is located in the Buenavista neighbourhood in the Campanillas district in the west of the city. However, the total area to be used for the Expo is 800,000 m2 and it includes the land west and east of the main plot to be allocated respectively for logistics and residents for the Expo.
The Expo would be located, therefore, on a plot in the city's productive triangle next to the University of Malaga, the Andalusian Technological Park, the main business parks, the Malaga international airport and the Malaga Trade Fair and Congress Centre.
This location has advantages as it will maximize benefits after the Expo and today it already has the majority of the necessary communications infrastructure: airport, railway lines and the main highway intersection for the metropolitan area. The latter is especially important since this location reinforces the metropolitan nature of the Expo 2027 Malaga, being close to other municipalities such as Alhaurin de la Torre, Torremolinos and Cartama.
