The Uzexpocenter is an Open Joint-Stock Society National Exhibition Company, which is part of the Republic of Uzbekistan’s Ministry of Foreign Economic Relations, Investments and Trade and has become an awards winning venue in recent years. Located in Tashkent, the Uzexpocenter was built following a need for a high quality exhibition centre in the country and construction of the complex began following an order by the Cabinet of Ministers in Uzbekistan.

The centre was originally called the Uzexpocentre Republican Trade Exhibition Centre, however the name and the structure of the complex was changed in the year 2005. It is now known as the Uzexpocentre Open Joint-Stock Society National Exhibition Company.
