The Barcelona International Community Day hosted by Ajuntament de Barcelona celebrated its 6th edition on October 26th.
An annual event gathered expat community in a welcoming environment at the Museu Maritim de Barcelona with the aim to provide vital information about landing services, settling down, establishing personal or business relationships and, of course, enjoy the beautiful city of Barcelona.
Visitors had a chance to participate in the workshops, conferences, panel discussions, networking sessions and all kind of leisure activities in a friendly atmosphere. Various companies shared their expertise in different categories, such as Personal landing, Work and doing business, Cultural integration, Children and Entertainment activities, and more.
The exhibition area was open the whole day for everyone, companies and the municipal administration showcased their many services and products. People exchanged contacts, made connections and received relevant information about Barcelona’s International Community.
This year the Studentfy team joined the occasion and participated both with a stand, as well as a media partner. It was a great experience and allowed us to meet face to face with hundreds of incoming students, connect with other businesses and start new partnerships. We were able to see first-hand the impact that these networking events can have on recently-arrived students and young professionals, which reminded us of the importance of our mission: to find ways to positively impact student life in the city.
