On March 5th the Barcelona Expat Fair was held in the historical train station, Estación de Francia, conveniently located next to the Born and Barceloneta neighborhoods.
The expat fair focuses on selected service providers, including accounting and taxes, children and family services, employment and recruiting, health and medical, international education, and real estate. Relocation experts are also available as they add tremendous value to the expat experience.
Victor Horcasitas from The American Society of Barcelona says “This initiative responds to the continued growth of international talent driving the Catalan ecosystem of entrepreneurship and a leading technology hub of Europe. And Barcelona is investing time and attention to attracting talent to ensure it solidifies itself as the perfect place to live and work.”
Indeed, over 460,000 people from 170 countries currently reside in the city, accounting for roughly 28% of its population. Barcelona’s international reputation of a progressive city combining treasured traditions and wonderful weather is well established.
The Expat Fair is free to the public and it’s a great opportunity to meet with leading providers of critical services that expats need to become a Barcelonian.
