Barcelona Expat Fair announces it will hold an event to connect the international community of Barcelona with service providers who are experts and focused on serving the needs of foreign nationals who have chosen to move to and live in the Barcelona metropolitan area.
Mirjam Maarleveld from Barcelona Expat Life explains that “Relocating to a new city and country can be as exciting as it is daunting. Barcelona Expat Fair is committed to helping people from other cultures and countries to adapt to their new life here as smoothly and efficiently as possible. Access to world class services demanded by a fast growing pool of international people is available, but finding those services can be a frustrating challenge.”
The expat fair in March will focus 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 will also be 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 will be free to the public and they will be able to meet with leading providers of critical services that expats need to become a Barcelonian. It will be held in the train station Estacion de Francia, conveniently located next to the Born and Barceloneta neighborhoods, on 5 March from 9:00 – 15:00.
