Nos vemos en Barcelona!      Let's Meet in Barcelona!     ¡Ens trobem a Barcelona!

Project for Public Spaces (PPS), the Institut Municipal de Mercats de Barcelona (IMMB) and UN-Habitat are proud to host the 9th International Public Markets Conference in one of world’s greatest Market Cities – Barcelona. Arguably the international model for a Market City, Barcelona boasts 43 food and non-food public markets, many of which have recently undergone major renovation.

The conference will focus on new trends and innovations for the preservation and revitalization of public markets internationally – from temporary open air markets to permanent market halls to 24/7 bustling market districts.

Over three days the world’s leading public market operators, developers and thought-leaders will experience how Barcelona succeeds as a Market City. Together, we will articulate a new global vision for public markets as authentic places that are increasingly recognized for their contributions to sustainable food systems, local economic development and rural-urban linkages.

Conference participants will spend an entire day visiting and learning about the inner workings of Barcelona’s extraordinary markets, led by experts  from IMMB.
