Last week, the IAAPA * Expo Europe 2021 kicked off in Barcelona. It was the first time since 2019 (Paris) that the fair could be held as the intended fair in London 2020 could not be held due to the pandemic. At the fair, representatives from various companies in the industry met and exchanged knowledge, experiences and networks with each other. The fair was also a good way for trend research and for making new, valuable contacts.

Just like in 2019 in Paris, Funbutler was also present in Barcelona. The goal of our participation was to see new technology and innovations in the industry, as well as to make new contacts with other participants and exhibitors who were there. We also took the opportunity to meet some existing customers and partners who were also present.

An overall impression of our stay was that it really feels like the industry is moving forward even though we are still in a pandemic. It is full of new innovations and new technical solutions in our industry, which makes us happy.

That people have become more digital than ever is probably not something that anyone is surprised by and it is a development we follow closely. We at Funbutler also realize that the importance of a functioning business system is more important than ever to have a profitable and scalable business and at the same time avoid administrative problems that often come in connection with one’s business growing bigger and bigger.

We thank the organizers, participants and exhibitors of IAAPA Expo Europe 2021 for a well-conducted and successful event and hope to see you again next time.
