Each year it organises and attracts events that are international leaders in their specialities (food, technology, health, fashion, the car industry, industrial production, etc.). It also innovates in order to expand its fairs and create events to meet the new social and business demands and it helps companies to enter new markets by co-organising fairs in different countries.
It hosts over 150 trade shows, congresses and corporate events per year with 30,000 exhibitors, both direct and represented, and receives 2.5 million visitors from over 200 countries.
Barcelona’s trade fair tradition dates back to the Exposición Universal of 1888 and the Exposición Internacional of 1929.
Fira de Barcelona has over 500,000 m2 of exhibition floor space and is one of the largest in Europe, divided into two large venues: the emblematic Montjuïc and the modern Gran Via, designed by the Japanese architect Toyo Ito.
In November 2021, Fira de Barcelona took over the management of the CCIB (Barcelona International Convention Centre) becoming the leading operator in Barcelona.
