Barcelona Specs is an independent eyewear show with the ambition of creating an environment and a place where opticians go to be inspired and updated on the international eyewear industry.
The ambition of Barcelona Specs is to deliver a vibrant eyewear show giving the international optical business an opportunity to meet trendsetting eyewear manufacturers that have a visionary and artistic approach to eyewear design. By meeting the eyewear designers in person, opticians have a unique opportunity to learn the story behind every brand and get an insight into the visionary and artistic approach to eyewear design.
We have found a great venue in the city center of Barcelona, which just fits the concept perfectly.
The show takes place at the Italian Pavilion, at Plaça d’Espanya in the center of vibrant Barcelona. This gives the visitors a unique possibility to combine a visit to the eyewear show with doing some sightseeing. The city is full of beautiful architecture, historical buildings, plenty of cafés, restaurants, cultural events and pulsating nightlife.
Fira Barcelona, Montjuïc
Regarded as one of the most emblematic urban fairgrounds in the world, it was built in 1929 on the occasion of the International Exhibition. Its seven halls combine the continuance of the trade fair tradition and an infrastructure suited to all kinds of events.
It stands in a superb location in the city centre, easily accessible from the airport and well-connected to the public transport network. It is situated in Montjuïc Park, an area of cultural and historical interest thanks to its museums and theatres and it also features some of the main tourist attractions in Barcelona.
