The most important fairs and events held in Barcelona

24 February, 2021

It is said that the beauty of Barcelona is only matched by the hustle and bustle of its financial centre. This economic hub is, without a doubt, one of the centres where “the action” moves on the peninsula. But that is not all. Its influence on a European level is growing, and proof of this are the increasingly important trade fairs and events that take place in Barcelona. We take a look at the most important ones and give you reasons to visit them.


Barcelona as an international hub for trade fairs and events in Europe


Since it hosted the Olympic Games in 1992, Barcelona has become a centre for networking, trade fairs and events. It is famous for its sectoral trade fairs, which run from March to November. Events such as the now classic Salón del Manga also make this a unique destination. If we add to this the fact that the city of Barcelona is much more, full of places to see, technology and culture, it is impossible that it has not become an economic hub.


The possibilities multiply if, in addition to visiting trade fairs and events, we want to network and make contact with market leaders in our sector. Fairs in the technological field stand out, but they are by far not the only ones.
