20th edition of the Barcelona Commerce Prize

Barcelona City Council has been holding the "Barcelona Commerce Prize” every year for two decades, with the aim of helping to stimulate and promote commercial business activity and better world recognition of our city’s world of commerce.

The Councillor’s Office for Commerce and Markets awards the Commerce Prize to the commercial establishments whose work and involvement have made the most notable contribution towards Barcelona's position as a reference point for commerce.

The prize is intended to lend recognition to the companies that have managed to develop their customer offers, manage the continuity of their business models and make ongoing contributions towards dynamising Barcelona and its commercial benchmark.
