Notes:
- Some of these activities were performed virtually or in hybrid form, i.e. in a small-scale face-to-face format with a virtual part, due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
- The new county of El Moianès was created on 1 May 2015 (Law 4/2015, of 23 April, on the creation of the county of El Moianès) from the aggregation of five municipalities of the county of El Bages, one from the county of Osona and four from the county of El Vallès Oriental.
- From March 2014 onwards, eight municipalities in L'Anoia will change designation and will belong to El Penedès region of the Central Counties. For comparability of results, the series have been revised from 2009 onwards.

Methodological note

Definition of concepts

Trade fair
Periodical activity mainly addressed at a professional audience. Orders and sales and purchase contracts can be made, but not direct sales involving withdrawal of merchandise during the period of the fair. If the periodical activity is addressed at the general public and occasionally allows direct sales involving the withdrawal of merchandise, it is called a market (or consumer) fair. If the exhibited offer represents different sectors it is called a multi-sector fair. If the exhibited offer represents a single sector it is called a monographic fair or showroom. If the fair does not take place on a regular basis, it is called an exhibition or display.

Methodological aspects

Also included is data on county fairs and fairs and trade shows on a state or international level. The geographical classification is established depending on whether the origin of the exhibitors represents more than 20% of the total.

Current Territorial Distribution

At present, Catalonia is divided into 41 counties, 1 singular territorial entity (Aran) and 8 areas of the Territorial Plan, according to the latest territorial changes, which affect the areas of El Penedès and the Central Counties, Aran and El Moianès.
