Barcelona Building Construmat 2017, the great construction event

The real estate market has a very varied portfolio of assets and we are not just referring to the different types of properties. New property construction is one of the most important areas because it involves expanding the existing market with new builds. After a few years of uncertainty complicated by the impact of the economic crisis, the real estate sector has began experiencing very positive results. With a view to the future, the Barcelona Building Construmat 2017 will once again be the great Spanish fair in the field of construction.

The event, which will take place between 23rd and 26th of May at the Fira de Barcelona, will celebrate its 20th edition amid a climate of growing optimism. The figures that the 2016 financial year revealed in the construction sector confirm a clear recovery both in the number of construction permits and in the volume of business. Thus, investments in new construction rose by 3.6% in Spain, standing above the 880,000 million euros. All this, of course, has contributed to energising other economic sectors and creating many jobs.

The Barcelona Building Construmat 2017 will not only present this undeniable reality but will show everyone who comes to Gran Vía what the perspectives of the sector for the coming years will be. The event will be divided into four major blocks or thematic spaces. Industry Arena will focus on the dissemination of work and the projects of many construction companies. This will be the perfect opportunity to get a first-hand look at the great offers (and those that are to come).

However, it will be Future Arena that will attract the most attention if we take into account the slogans of the fair. The presentation of the advancements in the last few years and numerous projections of what the future could offer us in the field of construction will undoubtedly hit many headlines. Aspects such as the role of new technologies in the future of the sector will be duly discussed in this interactive fair.

The third premise is dedicated to Talks Arena, which as its name indicates aspires to generate a broad framework of debate between companies, investors and individuals. Some of the topics that will be interesting conversations will be Social Housing, the Circular Economy or the already discussed Innovation among other issues. Finally, the Meetings Arena will serve as a meeting point for all stakeholders who are interested in the construction world. This will be a very busy schedule that will come with many different surprises during the four days.
