Companies that lead the way in quality, design and export potential in the bridal fashion sector loyally returned, once again, to an event which has achieved full occupation of its 30,000 m2, with a turnout of 13,000 professionals and purchasers at the show, 60% from abroad, and 10,900 people at the fashion shows of Pasarela Gaudí Novias.

The nineteenth edition of the BARCELONA BRIDAL WEEK which, between Tuesday 9 and Sunday 14, June, once again turned this Catalonian city into the world's bridal fashion capital, closed its doors with a balance that places it at the head of the events in its speciality once again. More than 13,000 professional visitors from buying centres, with a percentage of foreigners of close on 60%, consolidate the event's international dimension.

Most of the leading companies in the bridal sector have gone for the BARCELONA BRIDAL WEEK once again, the only event which for the last 19 years has brought together the quality and the creativity that make the Spanish bridal industry a world reference point, besides offering exhibiting companies and visitors the tools they need to progress together in the same direction.
