It is composed of two distinct venues: Fira Gran Via and Fira Montjuic, the latter being strategically located next to Plaça de Espanya and Arenas de Barcelona shopping mall, within walking distance to bus stops and metro stations connecting the area to the most iconic spots in the city, as well as only 5 minutes away from the train station housing the high-speed AVE railway service.
