From May 23rd to 26th, the Barcelona Building Construmat will be held in the city of Barcelona. This will be another year of innovation and change in the construction sector. The chosen venue for this fair will be at the Gran Via Recinto de Fira de Barcelona (Fira de Barcelona).
Based on the figures that are being assessed, the outlook for 2017 and 2018 are certainly encouraging. The construction of new properties is slowly regaining strength and the property sector's health is getting stronger. Moreover, the digitisation and implementation of new technologies are playing an important role.
Everything seems to indicate that production will grow in the coming years, even above the economy's average.
The event, data
The Barcelona Building Construmat's exhibition area will be as large as 13,000 sqm. A large turnout by leading companies in everything around the construction sector is expected, with a growth of 20% by exhibitors, which can be understood as a clear sign of the sector's recovery.
The exhibition hall will be divided into four "arenas" and themed areas. A large space is dedicated to the sector, (Industry Arena), the innovations space (Future Arena), the area for conferences and talks ("Talks Arena") and an important area for making contacts with professionals in the sector and the opportunity to start a new business in the "Meetings Arena".
Aside from the exhibition, a series of activities will also take place. The highlight of this year's edition will be the BBCOnstrumat Awards presentation.
New-build properties for sale in Barcelona
Based on the current market situation, the best investments are buying and selling residential properties and short-term rentals. Engel & Völkers offers a comprehensive sale and rental service so that the investments made can generate profits from the moment they start.
Which factors are the most important in terms of investment?
• Buying a property must be done in a market that's in an upward trend.
• Viewing and valuing the property. At Engel & Völkers, we are responsible for carrying out the necessary checks on every property. Our professionals are qualified and have extensive experience.
• The possibilities of obtaining high profitability through property rentals. Although the economic crisis seems to have passed or is about to go, purchasing a property is not always possible so renting still remains an ideal option.
