Expohogar Autumn’s move from its former venue to the new Montjuic Exhibition Centre is expected to please both exhibitors and visitors to this popular event, according to Fira de Barcelona, the exhibition’s organisers, who note the first class facilities and better transport links to the city centre.
The show is open only to trade, and will feature exhibitors showcasing the latest designer trends in jewellery, gifts, accessories and homeware. The homeware section includes home textiles, terrace and gardenware, interior decoration and lighting, all with a focus on modern design and practicality.
Montjuic Exhibition Centre’s extensive catchment area will bring in local trade visitors and the international flavour of the exhibits will attract buyers from across Europe, giving unique business opportunities for networking and sales. More than 8,000 attended the show in 2008, with an increase expected this year and the new venue an added draw.
The city is a year round business and tourism destination, with Barcelona Hotels in high demand especially in summer. Booking accommodation in the city centre well in advance is advised by DirectRooms.com, as both exhibitors and trade visitors to Expohogar Autumn 2010 will be keen to book rooms close to the venue to avoid unnecessary travelling.
