Barcelona’s annual get-together of internationals is taking place on October 22 in the city’s Maritime Museum and registration for the free event is now open.
The International Community Day aims to bring people from all over the world together to offer them networking opportunities or helpful guidance if they’re new to the city. The day will feature around 50 activities and 80 exhibiting companies and entities offering services to help internationals navigate life in the city better, including Catalan News.
The day will feature a reception, meeting and networking spaces, and an exhibition hall. Among the activities scheduled are workshops, conferences, and even a quiz organized by Catalan News.
The event is completely free, but anybody attending must register here in advance. It’s expected that around 4,000 attendees will come to the event.
Most of the activities organized are in English and touch on various topics of interest such as finding one’s feet upon arrival, working and doing business, networking, and enjoying Barcelona.
Six people based in Barcelona will share their experiences of moving to the city and setting up new lives in Catalonia. There will also be entertainment, live music and children’s activities, plus a big closing party – a new feature for this year’s edition.
The Barcelona International Community Day is a public-private initiative promoted by the city council, with input from Banco Sabadell, Eres Relocation Services, MAPFRE, and Page Personnel.
The event, completely free of charge, starts at 10am on Saturday, October 22, in the Maritime Museum (Museu Marítim) of Barcelona. Register here to attend.
