Fira Barcelona

Barcelona Fairs holds a main place in the world for the number of business meetings taking place every day inside the fairgrounds: 365,000 sqm including the modern  facilities of the Gran Via exhibition centre and the historical Montjuic venue.

The position occupied by Barcelona, among the first five cities of the future in the ranking published by the New York Times, is due to the strategic role of Barcelona Fairs in the Catalan economy and at national level. With its rich calendar of 80 trade exhibitions it gathers 40,000 companies and 3.5 million visitors.

There has been always a very strong Italian presence in Barcelona trade fairs with a gradual increase in the number of exhibiting companies that has registered an acceleration in recent years.

Catalonia is one of Spain’s big industrial engines and Barcelona can be considered the entrance to the Spanish market not only for big companies but also for small and medium enterprises who want to approach this country by searching for agents and distributors in the areas of major strategic interest. Barcelona offers Italian entrepreneurs who participate in trade exhibitions a recreational, cultural and social dimension which perfectly represents the concept of “business and leisure” and so is of interest for all professionals. The capital of Catalonia is easily accessible from all Italian regions.

The most interesting businesses for Italian companies are the industrial sectors such as construction materials, ceramic products and bath equipment, packaging and also consumer goods sectors such as cosmetics, fashion, tourism and the marine sector..
