Subcontratación, the biennial subcontracting trade show that is held in Bilbao, will return on 26 to 28 October for its 20th event.

Running as part of the Industry+ group of events, Subcontratación is Spain's only trade show featuring manufacturing processes and equipment for SME outsourcers and as a benchmark event for advanced manufacturing.

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 a broad spectrum of manufacturing processes, including foundry, part machining, and moulds, 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.
