Vilnius is a city best known for its historical charm, particularly its Unesco-listed Old Town. Yet there are few European capitals modernising quite so rapidly.
Why exhibit there?
Intensive industrialization during the Soviet regime resulted in companies specializing in electronics, chemicals, machine tools, food processing, metal processing, and construction materials. The fastest-growing segment in Lithuanian economy is currently services.
Once you land at Vilnius International Airport, there is a dedicated train "Vilnius-Airport" that runs regularly into town to Vilnius central railway station. The train shuttles 16 times a day and takes 7 minutes to go from the airport to the railway station.

- Cultural sensitivities:
- Lithuanians are very proud of themselves and their country, it is not acceptable to criticise them, their government or the economic situation, even as a joke.
