October 9th & 10th saw the 1st Guiri Business Jobs Con & Expo at the Valkiria Hub Space in Barcelona. Overall, we felt that it was a very valuable experience for our community and helped us build bridges with many of our members, recruiters, business associations, business suppliers and local city officials, that want to further progress local international business in Barcelona and beyond.  We like to thank all of Guiri Business LinkedIn Group members that attended the event.

Hi all,

Unfortunately, I only knew too late about this event, so I could not attend.

Do you already have a date for a similar forthcoming event in Barcelona?

Thanks a lot
