Leipzig has been noted for its trade fairs since the 1400s, and its new Exhibition Center (which opened in 1996) hosts nearly four dozen major events that attract more than a million visitors per year. The Leipzig Book Fair and the GC Games Convention rank high on the list of events; another with a catchy title is the DOG-Kongress (with DOG standing for "Deutsche Ophthalmologische Gesellschaft," not our canine friends).
