Barcelona’s trade fair tradition goes as far back as the Universal Exhibition of 1888. In 1920, the first trade fair was held and the present trade fair grounds in Montjuic were established in 1929.
The Fira de Barcelona is the city’s trade fair institution and one of the largest in Europe. Each year numerous exhibitions and conferences are held here, bringing together leading companies from different economic sectors to showcase their innovations, share their knowledge and experience and promote their businesses.
The Fira has a portfolio of 80 annual, biannual, biennial, triennial, and quadrennial trade shows which attract some 40,000 companies and 3.5 million visitors. It is the leader in industrial trade fairs in Spain, and 15 of its trade fairs are considered benchmarks in Europe.
The Fira is divided into two venues - the Montjuic location is 165,000 square metres and the Gran Via venue, which opened in 2007, covers 200,000 square metres and is extendable to 405,000 square meters.
