Mostra PRO Catalan Arts

Once again, La Llotja –located on the first floor of the Leather Museum– will be the relational space of the Mostra Igualada, hosting all accredited professionals and a series of activities of interest to the sector.

This year, to further enhance attendance, professional networking, and participation in La Llotja's activities, on Thursday, March 10, and Friday, March 12, the show programming will pause from 11:30 am until noon. On Saturday, April 13, the morning stage agenda will remain active, but activity in La Llotja will be strengthened with a new set of significant events. (See below for the program)

In parallel with the organization of activities for professionals, La Llotja will be the welcome point where accreditations will be collected and where the necessary space will be available to carry out everything required for a fair: meetings, informal conversations, exchange of opinions, debate, working with computers, and also an area to rest or the possibility of enjoying a relaxed atmosphere while having a drink with professional colleagues.
