Sitges welcomes the 2nd most important Scrapbooking Fair in Europe
From March 17th to 19th, a new Scrap + Fair will be taking place, the number two fair in all of Europe dedicated to scrapbooking, second only to the one in Paris.
From March 17th to the 19th, Sitges will be holding the fifth Scrap+ Fair, considered to be the number two most important fair in Europe revolving around the world of scrapbooking, second only to the one in Paris, and that has managed to become the benchmark for scrapbooking professionals and fans. Over forty exhibitors including distributors, designers and manufacturers will be showing the latest trends in scrapbooking in the 1,100 m2 marquee located along the Passeig de la Ribera seafront promenade.
The councilwoman for Economic Promotion, Aurora Carbonell, pointed out that “it’s one of the most important events on the local calendar due to the economic impact it generates. During the three days the fair lasts, we are expecting to receive approximately 8,000 visitors”. The councilwoman also noted that “it’s a type of sustainable tourism which is one of our main commitments. In addition, it’s held during an off-peak tourist season, which helps us with seasonality in tourism”.
One of the new features the fair is presenting this year is the Make and Take area, a 45 minute course where a mini project will be conducted aimed at raising awareness of the new developments each exhibitor is presenting.
Simultaneously in the area for the presentation of products that you’ll find in the marquee, different activities have been scheduled for the visitor to enjoy these days of scrapbooking and learning. Fòrum + is a free area where innovative products from the scrapping world are presented and there will be live demonstrations of paper collections, stamps or operating new machines, among others.
During the event an APP will be launched with different frames designed by Marisa Bernal to be available to decorate the pictures you make during your stay at the Fair.
The Scrap+ Fair also houses Art+, an exhibit of scrapbooking pages (layouts) that can be visited at the Miramar Building inspired by a specific subject the organization proposes to participants and that are designed by creators from the world of scrapbooking.
The Scrap+ Fair provides a formative side and offers workshops at the Miramar Building where last year, over 400 people participated carrying out different scrapbooking projects.
The company in charge of organizing this initiative is Scrap+ in collaboration with the Sitges Town Council.
