The article presents a comparative study of the transformation on-going in the Milan fair system and of the proposals for the transformation of the Manhattan fair-convention center. The comparison will be useful both for the definition of the New York strategy (Javits Center expansion or relocation) and for the issues still open in Milan for the local development around its new peripheral site and for the implementation of the winning proposal in the design competition for redevelopment of the downtown former Fiera area.
