It’s an exciting time for Contemporary Event Structures!
The business is expanding into the warmer climes of the Spanish events market and opening an office in the cosmopolitan city of Barcelona.
The move builds on the team’s existing relationship with prominent European trade fair institution Fira Barcelona, and in particular with the organisation’s expansive and modern events venue in the city, Gran Via, .
CES’s Spanish brand, Carpas Hinchables – literally ‘inflatable tents’ in Spanish – is already up and running.
Spain’s event sector is thriving and not just in Barcelona; more than 50 of its cities are considered specialists in conferences and exhibitions! They boast well equipped venues sporting all mod cons; advanced infrastructure with new terminals in international airports and the biggest high-speed rail network in Europe; and a good range of quality accommodation options.
Throw in a year-round attractive climate, beautiful natural scenery, fascinating culture and amazing food, and it’s no surprise that event organisers and their delegates are flocking to Spain – or that CES wants a taste of the tapas!
Gavin Miller, CES director, commented: ““There’s a real buzz around the event industry in Spain and the sector is expanding, so it’s an ideal platform for us to fully launch our services on the continent and grow our business. With our strong existing links in Barcelona, it makes perfect sense to take that a step further and make the city our European base.
“This is ultimately our first move towards developing our global reach, as we have plans to open more international offices later this year.”
