The Levant Fair was an international trade fair held in Tel Aviv in the 1930s. The fair was preceded by an assortment of exhibitions and fairs in Tel Aviv between 1924-1929, most of which were arranged by the "Business and Manufacturing Society" that was established by Tel Aviv entrepreneurs. The 1932 fair was the first to be officially called the "Levant Fair."
