The institution

Fira around the world

Fira de Barcelona promotes international trade fair business in order to contribute to the internationalization of companies and to export its organizational experience around the world.

In addition to the events held at its Gran Via and Montjuïc venues, Fira de Barcelona operates in several countries in Europe, Latin America, Africa and Asia, where it organises events in partnership with local operators, through strategic agreements and subsidiary companies.

With its presence in international markets, it helps to support companies in their expansion abroad and capitalises on its experience in organising fairs in different industrial and technological sectors. In this regard, it also provides consultancy services to other organisations and fair venues.

Fira’s international projection reinforces its positioning as one of the best trade fair platforms in Europe and it also contributes to the promotion of the city of Barcelona.

Fira co-organises successful trade shows and events at foreign venues, suited to the needs of each country, and also promotes the participation of exhibitors. Among these feature those held in Guadalajara and Puebla (Mexico), Lisbon (Portugal), Havana (Cuba), Buenos Aires (Argentina), Kyoto (Japan), Doha (Qatar), Istanbul (Turkey), Casablanca (Morocco), Curitiba (Brazil), Jaipur (India) and Atlanta (EUA)

As a result of its long-standing experience in the design of strategies to optimise business, it participates in the management of venues in other countries, such as the Doha Exhibition and Convention Centre (through the VPM joint venture with the Elan company), among others.

Fira de Barcelona, with broad experience in the trade fair sector, offers strategic consultancy services to other venues and operators in different countries to optimise their business models, premises and trade fair projects.
