This year will see the 20th edition of the Subcontratación, subcontracting trade show, closely working with small and medium enterprises to build an event aimed to do business. Its support for SMEs has remained strong over the past 40 years, and this year’s event will bring the sector back together over 26-28 October, as part of the +Industry platform.
Subcontratación has made a mark down through the years as Spain’s only trade show featuring manufacturing processes and equipment for SME outsourcers and as a benchmark event for advanced manufacturing. The various Chambers of Commerce and sectoral associations have come together to organise the event yet one more year.
This year’s edition will once again combine an exhibition space with large-scale B2B encounters at the 19th European Subcontracting Meeting, organised by the Barcelona Chamber of Commerce, the Bilbao Chamber of Commerce and Bilbao Exhibition Centre, working together with the Spanish Outsourcing Network. At the 2019 event, more than 1000 interviews were held, allowing subcontractors and buyers to forge links and strike deals.
The exhibition area at Subcontratación 2021 will feature companies from the field of manufacturing processes, including foundry, part machining, and moulds, to name a few, as well as specialists in surface treatments and coatings and prototypes. A wide range of companies will take part, showcasing essential processes, cutting-edge technologies and everything in between, including complete manufacturing processes.
The event offers the added attraction of being held as part of +Industry, one of the leading industrial platforms held at Bilbao Exhibition Centre. Along with Subcontratación, another six trade shows will run concurrently at BEC – Industry Tools by Ferroforma, Addit3D, Pumps&Valves, Fitmaq, Maintenance and BeDigital, making +Industry the country’s biggest Smart Manufacturing meeting point.
