Barcelona is a hub of tourist activity the whole year round. This traffic does not only consist of tourists visiting for recreational reasons, there are also a large number of business visitors who arrive in the city on a regular basis. This regular flow of business people, the established infrastructure in the city and the glorious setting make Barcelona an ideal destination to host Exhibitions. Throughout the year, there are a range of exhibitions held in Barcelona covering a variety of fields of interest. Below is a brief guide to some of these exhibitions:

This annual event brings together all of the main players in the tourism industry form Spain and around the world. It is a largely consumer orientated affair so is a good place to go to investigate what the world of tourism has to offer and plan you next trip.
