How to participate?

Exhibiting at the BBF Pro 2020

BBF Pro Expo is an exhibition fair that takes place on the same site as the festival, and is attended by more than 1500 professionals from across the sector. It is designed for all companies that offer a product or service that is necessary for the preparation or distribution of craft beer. It focuses on providing an opportunity to present or position your company in a growing market. The metrics can be read at  “The state of craft beer in Catalonia” study (jointly developed by Beer Events and GECAN)  and includes data from 93% of the 109 factories that are based in Catalonia. The report, among other indicators, determines that the consumption of craft beer has already reached 1,8% of overall beer consumption, and that there is an increase of 20% per year in production. In the last four years, the production has quadrupled, and production factories have increased from 39 in 2012, to 109 in 2018.

We’re currently working to be able to host the 9th edition of the Barcelona Beer Festival and the 6th edition of the BBF Pro, circumstances permitting. If you need any information, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
