International Business

Fira de Barcelona develops initiatives to promote the international exhibition business, anticipating the challenges of the market and globalisation in a highly competitive environment. 

It also contributes to promoting the presence of Catalan and Spanish companies abroad and strengthening the experience of the institution.

The institution jointly organises trade shows in various different countries as well as being involved in the management of exhibition and convention centres and providing consultancy services for facilities and events.

These actions are inseparable from Fira's ongoing commitment to internationalisation and its consolidation as one of the most outstanding platforms in Europe for major sector events, further underscored by the value of the Barcelona brand and the synergies between the city and its institution.
