A major trade fair organisation
Fira de Barcelona's activity, venues, experience and leadership make it one of the most important trade fair institutions in Europe.
Constituted in 1932, every year it organises and hosts shows and congresses that cover the economy's main sectors, as well as numerous corporate, social and cultural events. It has two large venues and offers exhibitors, organisers and visitors all the resources of a modern and efficient institution.
Fira is one of the most important European trade fair organisations and its international prestige is closely linked to the Barcelona brand, a city with over a century of trade fair tradition. Its annual economic contribution to the city of Barcelona and its surroundings is estimated at over 2,600 million Euros and also brings added social and public value.
As an economic driver, it is one of the best platforms for business, international exposure of companies, product marketing, networking and knowledge exchange.
One of its main features is its support of productive sectors, professionals and entrepreneurs. In order to face the challenges of globalisation and anticipate market demands, it combines organisational experience, innovation, technological development and competitiveness.
Together with the foreign promotion of its companies, Fira works to attract large international events, promote the growth of its shows, create new events related to emerging sectors, ensure excellent service and organise value added activities.
Committed to corporate responsibility, its activity is based on sustainability, respect for the environment and support of various charity initiatives.
Fira is a consortium comprised by the Barcelona City Council, the Catalan Generalitat and the Barcelona Chamber of Commerce, which combines public ownership with autonomous company management.
