    it will be the 25th exhibition/this will be the 25th time exhibition has taken place

    Hello everybody!

    The Norway's largest fair is soon going to take place for the 25th time. The fair has not been held yet. It is the near future.

    I would like to express this idea by saying that "It will be the 25th exhibition" or "This/that will be the 25th time (that) the exhibition has taken place.

    Do you agree with my opinion?

    Although the exhibition is scheduled to take place in the near future, the Present Perfect Tense is used.

    Thank you.

    Both are ok, but I'd suggest a 3rd, slightly more natural combination of the two such as "This will be the 25th exhibition."

    If the exhibitions are only held once a year, and have been held for consecutive years, you could also say "This will be the 25th annual exhibition.'

    Are you talking about the country "Norway"?

    Then don't use the definite article before the name.
