Trade fairs


Construmat 2017

Barcelona Building Construmat, the International Construction Trade Fair of Fira de Barcelona, returned to growth when it increased its display space by 25% and the number of direct exhibitors by 27% over the previous staging of 2015. With nearly 800 brands participating, the most emblematic event in the industry evinced the improvement being experienced by Spanish construction. This year, digitisation and innovation acquired a special starring role as the shift levers required by the industry for dealing with the new times.

As well as the large display surface of 13,800 square metres, the 20th staging presented a broad programme of activities: forums and talks, presence of virtual reality, drones, 3D printing, internet of things, BIM or prototypes of sustainable homes as well as a B2B meeting area, among others.

The retrospective exhibition with the posters of the event’s 20 editions—the first one of which took place in 1979—, the exhibition of the 13th Spanish Architecture and Urbanism Biennial and the 17th edition of the BBConstrumat Awards completed the trade fair’s offering.
