The construction of the Hall Zero pavilion at Fira de Barcelona's Gran Vía venue in the municipality of Hospitalet de Llobregat, which will increase its exhibition area by 25%, will involve an investment of 323 million euros.
The new space, located where the Porcelanosa building used to be, will add 60,000 square metres of floor space, increasing from the current 240,000 sqm to 300,000 sqm.
Once the pavilion is ready in the third quarter of 2026, the Mobile World Congress mobile technology congress could have this space from the 2027 edition.
With this expansion, Fira de Barcelona strengthens its position among the world's elite in the sector and achieves the necessary size to compete with Europe's leading trade fair venues.
The future pavilion, which will have two floors on which the exhibition area will be distributed, will also have an adjoining tower of 24,000 square metres for offices and services, which will be mainly owned by the Generalitat de Catalunya, although there will also be spaces to support the economic activities derived from the trade fair activity.
