The Exportdrvo building is being refurbished by the Rijeka Port Authority, which owns the hall and is a partner of the European Capital of Culture project.

The Exportdrvo hall has an area of 5,400 m2. Following the refurbishment, it will become a new old location where the residence of Rijeka, numerous visitors and passers-by will be able to enjoy exhibitions, concerts and festivals at the hall, while in the following year, the adjacent Grobnik riva will be transformed from a parking space into a public zone where the people of Rijeka and the many visitors can socialise.
