A wonderful 5th edition of ARCHITECT@WORK Barcelona

28 March 2023

For the 5th time Barcelona hosted the professional event ARCHITECT@WORK. On Wednesday 15 and Thursday 16 of March, CCIB opened its doors to a selected audience of architects, interior designers, planners and other specifiers for two intense days of networking.

As many as 3.333 specifiers were able to discover the innovations presented by 142 manufacturers of the construction sector.


Delighted visitors and exhibitors

One thing is sure, the event was once again a great success. Unquestionably, both exhibitors and visitors were more than happy to attend, the atmosphere in the aisles of the show was great.

According to the first feedback, the exhibitors are extremely satisfied with the contacts they made, and the visitors highly appreciated the diversity of the products presented - all selected by a technical committee. Combine this with captivating talks, an exciting materials exhibit curated by MaterialDriven, the temporary bookstore and the opportunities for a break offered by the lounge areas and you get a result that specifiers cannot resist! Opportunities were grasped to broaden horizons, to connect and to meet with new products, really touch them and seize the unique moment for in depth conversations.
