BARCELONA OBERTA CONDEMNES THE INCIDENTS OF HELPING TO THE CENTER I REQUESTS DIALOGUE AND ENTITY GOVERNMENTS AND INSTITUTIONS

sevenapp | 16 October 2019

The Union of Trade and Tourism Axis of Barcelona, ​​Barcelona Oberta, regrets and condemns the very serious incidents that took place yesterday evening in downtown.

Barcelona, ​​October 16, 2019.- The tourist and commercial sector of Barcelona has again suffered the consequences of the demonstrations, traffic stoppages and vandalism that took place yesterday in the center of Barcelona, commercial and tourist activity.

The organization demonstrates that the dissemination of revolt, burning containers and objects of urban furniture, deeply damages the image we project from the city to the world. The actions of these days at the airport and the city center have a direct impact on tourism and trade, sectors that will be affected in the last quarter of the year, as happened two years ago.

For this reason, Barcelona Oberta, which defends the right to express itself from respect and coexistence, calls on the convocating organizations to promote peaceful acts and relocate the mobilizations of the center, and in particular, the demonstration convened this Friday at the late “Barcelona is from all of Barcelona.”

Likewise, the entity asks Governments and institutions for dialogue and understanding to prevent the occurrence of incidents such as those we are living these days.

Ada Colau at the Esmorzars amb el Comerç

sevenapp | 27 March 2019

Colau will launch the program “dynamic neighborhoods” to bring life to the empty commercial premises of the city

The Mayor amounts to € 30M in the amount necessary to buy and rehabilitate 150 empty commercial premises and create a stock exchange of available spaces, from which private premises may be disused.

As for the city’s tourism promotion, Colau has declined to use headlines on the celebration of major events and has argued that Barcelona has a model and project: to be an innovative, sustainable city and the best place to live and work.
Barcelona, ​​on March 25, 2019. – Ada Colau said this morning at the fifth Breakfast with the trade of Barcelona, ​​organized by Barcelona Comerç and Barcelona Oberta with the collaboration of La Vanguardia, that trade has a major economic role in The city, in addition, fulfills a clear function of social cohesion. In this sense, it has announced the program “dynamic neighborhoods”, a proposal to boost the vacancies in Barcelona. This new plan provides for the purchase and rehabilitation of up to 150 premises in different parts of the city, to be used for commercial activity under the official rental protection regime. His will is to create a stock exchange of available premises, especially in the neighborhoods where the presence of commerce is smaller.

In relation to the opening of new businesses, the mayor of Barcelona in common has recognized “too slow of the Administration in the procedures of licenses of activities and has announced reinforcements in this field and simplification of procedures. Colau, has also been shown to be in favor of the introduction of the IDBs, which he understands as “a tool to enhance and improve the services offered by the commercial axes.” Colau has rejected, however, that IDBs focus on areas such as cleaning or Security, tasks that directly compete with the Administration and which would involve parallel management. “All commercial axes must enjoy basic cleaning and security services, regardless of economic capacity.”

In relation to mobility, Ada Colau assured that in Barcelona, ​​like other cities, “we are faced with a paradigm shift and this causes debates, neglects and controversies. The big bottom line in our case is that there are more than 100,000 vehicles in Barcelona. It is a question of health and mobility. ” Colau would not rule out an entry toll in the city, a measure, he said, that they are already studying. On the contrary, he said, “a tribute that burdens the home delivery derived from e-commerce is not a solution. This type of distribution is a matter of pollution and also of occupation of public thoroughfare. It is necessary to enhance collection points and agree synergies between e-commerce operators and the city’s trade “. The Mayor has invited merchants and representatives of the commercial axes to a meeting with Amazon to find ways of collaboration. Regarding the supercases, the mayor has defined them as “a great success” and said they will continue to implement new ones. In the same way, Colau is committed to continuing to increase kilometers of bike lanes in the city, while reaffirming the feasibility of connecting the tram to the Diagonal. “The first section would go from Glòries to Verdaguer and would also lead to a redevelopment of the whole area.” Also, in matters of mobility, the Mayor has demanded the urgent fulfillment of the commitments related to investments in suburban infrastructures: “the City Council of Barcelona, ​​as well as others, for many years we are alone in structural matters and this we all pay “.

Related to the city’s tourism promotion, Colau defended a Barcelona as “an open city that loves to be visited and where tourists are welcome. However, tourism must be integrated into the city and can not be imposed on other activities. ” Likewise, he has shown himself in favor of an important transformation of “Turisme de Barcelona”, to face the new challenges that the city has today, “we need to reform the statutes, integrate more actors and create new strategies that promote sustainable tourism to contribute to the prestige of the city. ” In this context, Colau rejects any propaganda announcement of a great event for Barcelona, ​​as he said, “the city already has its own project and it is not necessary to resort to past formulas. I do not rule out that in the future Barcelona will be able to repeat some Olympic Games, we already have the infrastructures, but we do not have to force any project. ” Barcelona has insisted, “it is a pleasant city to live and this is its great strength to attract investment, tourism, talent. Barcelona wants to be a sustainable, friendly, livable and competitive city and that is why we need social cohesion to face all of the challenges ahead. ”

  • PARTICIPATING PROCESS “VIA LAIETANA A STREET FOR THE NEIGHBORHOOD” | Barcelona Oberta

PARTICIPATING PROCESS “VIA LAIETANA A STREET FOR THE NEIGHBORHOOD”

sevenapp | 19 March 2019

THE PROPOSAL OF THE TOWN HALL AND THE COMMUNICATED CONSULTANT, HAVE BEEN SATISFIED WITHOUT A POLITICAL OR VEINAL PREVIOUS CONSENT.

In response to the return session that took place yesterday on the participatory process “Via Laietana, a street for the neighborhood”, the president of the Neighborhood and Traders Association of Via Laietana, Mr. David González Deltell wants to communicate that he has Noting that the City Council has not responded to the proposals that have been raised from the Association with the support of the UPC.

The proposals of the City Council are totally skewed with great ideological nature, imposing the bicycle above pedestrian space, and they have not heard nor reached any consensus.

The City Council’s proposal aims to impose a segregated bike lane in the Via that limits the sidewalk space and jeopardizes pedestrians, since the bike lanes are located at the foot of the sidewalk. Therefore, the taxi and bus stops involve that the passengers have to raffle the bikes when going up and down the vehicles.

Our proposal, based on mobility studies and already implemented in other European cities, is a bicycle lane of climbing and descent shared with a private car with a limitation of 30km / h. And give priority to the width of the sidewalks of 4’25m, and to the public transport and taxi with its own lane on the sidewalk (with two ascent and two downhill). This proposal, gathered in the technical report carried out jointly with the UPC’s ETSAB, was not included even in the participatory process and therefore the real neighborhood support could not be measured.

The proposed 3.7m pavement council is ridiculous and is imposed by a segregated bike lane that leaves in second place mobility studies, other possible itineraries and options like the one we propose, of a 30km / h shared lane with private vehicle.

In addition, the City Council proposes to eliminate the turn to Antoni Maura, an aspect that we find indispensable for visitors and for the trade of Via Laietana and its surroundings. Private vehicle isolation will affect the center’s trade that will be affected.

That is why we want to express our total disagreement with these proposals that initially throughout the process have imposed the bicycle, have neglected other alternatives and have not allowed other proposals such as ours to be valued or studied by the rest of Participating neighbors and merchants.

José Bou in the Breakfasts with the Commerce of Barcelona

sevenapp | 5 February 2019

Bou has shown himself in favor of applying a fee to record and regulate the logistics generated by online commerce in the city.

The candidate announced that he would withdraw the bike lanes in Barcelona and give priority to the private vehicle.

According to the candidate of the PP in the mayor, Josep Bou i Vila, “Barcelona has an anarchist image and must be a great showcase of business and commercial”. The mayor has argued that in the event that he won the elections, he would bet on those decisions that were in the line of promoting the city and growing the economy of Barcelona, ​​to generate jobs. In this regard, he has supported the trade sector in “the introduction of IDBs in those commercial areas where necessary, however, I do not agree in their financing with taxes, there is a need for private investment.”

In matters of security and illegal trade, the proposal for a solution by Josep Bou has been very clear: “there is a political will on the part of the Consistory; He would mount an extra unit of the well-prepared urban guard, with the ability to act and evacuate the mantos. “According to Bou, if we project a serious city image, it would end up with the call’s effect and the problem would be erradicated.

Regarding mobility, the candidate of the PP, like Manel Valls, made it clear that the tramway on Diagonal is not a priority, although it does consider it necessary to speed up mobility. The proposed solution is a highly articulated vehicle: “The connection must be 10”. Bou has emphasized that in the past, the trams had caused many accidents in Barcelona, ​​that there is an excess of cycle lanes that do not make sense and that it should be removed, to give priority to the private vehicle. Bou has been forceful in the need to apply a fee as an instrument to regulate the increase in city journeys derived from the rise of online commerce.

Finally, regarding the problem of taxi drivers, Josep Bou has argued that “the future must be open to new technologies, it can not be that the MWC arrives and that we do not have Uber and Cabify in Barcelona: they must be able to coexist all the transport systems. “Likewise, despite defending the right to express itself, it considers that taxi drivers can not collapse the city, the public road is of everyone and must be respected.

Maragall turned out to be lazy, and expressed the will to analyze well
the efficiency, the real need, the functionality, the investment, … and it has not rated it as a

oligopoly, which has generated unfavorable working conditions and a second market for
resale of licenses. “The management or inaction of this public service is over

of this tax and a new distribution that solves this situation.
With respect to security and illegal trade, Ernest Maragall has been forceful in the

Seven categories will be awarded: 2D and 3D Design, Healthy Food, Commerce, Environment, Mobility and Tourism.
It will also be recognized with Prizes of Honor for the best patron and for the best solidarity project.
The presentation of the Talent Awards convened by the Welcome Talent Society will be this Wednesday, July 4, at eight in the evening, during a gala dinner supporter sponsored by Grupo Ametller Origen in the gardens of Sant Pau Modernist enclosure (Carrer Sant Antoni Maria Claret, 167. Barcelona).

The purpose of this Talent Night, presented by Icelandic singer Halldór Mar Katalonski and journalist and writer Albert Torras, and which is full of surprises, is to become a meeting and networking space for creators, sponsors, patrons , academic world, authorities and professionals that stimulate creative ideas and enhance the capacity for initiative and entrepreneurship of Catalans.

In this fourth edition awards are awarded for seven categories, with an economic grant of 2,000 euros. Those of Industrial Design 3D-object singular, Graphic Design 2D-souvenir and Innovation of Healthy Food-Origin were open to the free concurrence of people over 18 years. In the case of the two design awards, the works presented had to be inspired by the work of Lluís Domènech i Montaner, the author of the modernist Sant Pau Hospital.
On the other hand, the other four prizes -Committee, Environment, Mobility and Tourism-have been awarded by the respective juries among a list of candidates proposed by experts from each of the sectors.
Other personalities will also receive prizes in recognition of their professional career in each of these seven categories.
In addition, two prizes of honor will be awarded to honor the best patron and the best solidarity project.
All the winners will also receive a sculpture designed by the artist Helena Agustí Maragall that evokes the modernist imprint of Barcelona.

  • Reform Presentation Via Laietana | Barcelona Oberta

Reform Presentation Via Laietana

sevenapp | 25 June 2018

It has been initiated by the City Council, the participatory process that will lead to the definition of the comprehensive reform of the Via Laietana project.
This project must be defined and budgeted before the end of the current political mandate to be executed in the following.
The City Council has presented a maintenance reform project, which will have a direct impact on the drawing of the future Via Laietana, especially with regard to mobility.
This investment planned for “maintenance” of the Via Laietana is € 2,000,000 and will mainly affect the pavements and Plaça d’Antoni Maura.
From the Association of Neighbors and Traders of the Via Laietana it is requested and demands the maximum consensus with neighbors, merchants as well as political groups in order to get once and for all the comprehensive reform, but to be done well
There is no consensus of any kind in the reform that the City Council wants to start this summer. All the political groups with which we have spoken speak to us to be against acting in the Way that affects how the future project should be and that, in addition, an investment in the reform of sidewalks will be made when they will have to go back to the reform again.
The impact on mobility has not been studied well and the future Via Laietana is being mortgaged with a project unilaterally predefined by the current council, without any previous study, without local or commercial consensus, and without political consensus.
This is not the path of a net participatory process nor is the maximum consensus that has always been demanded from the Association of Neighbors and Traders of Via Laietana.
That is why we want to present the project that we have carried out jointly with the UPC (ETSAB Department of Urban Planning and Territorial Planning of the School of Architecture of Barcelona), where the problems of the Via is analyzed, we propose possible solutions and warn us of the challenges of the pacification of the Way that confronts directly with the action that the City Council wants to do without any type of consensus and greatly limiting the options and definition of the future Via Laietana.
Therefore, next Thursday, July 12, 2018 at 9:45 p.m. in the room reserved for the College of Industrial Engineers of Catalonia (Via Laietana nº 39 – Barcelona), where we will explain in detail the project developed for the comprehensive reform of Via Laietana.
It is necessary to confirm the assistance in the email info@veinsicomerciantslaietana.com. For reasons of security of the College of Industrial Engineers of Catalonia, we ask for Name, Surnames and DNI of those attending the presentation and we will be grateful for your help.

  • Barcelona Oberta and employer Cecot sign a collaboration agreement | Barcelona Oberta

Barcelona Oberta and employer Cecot sign a collaboration agreement

sevenapp | 4 December 2017

 

The President of Barcelona Oberta, Gabriel Jené, and the president of the Cecot and the Center of Reempresa of Catalonia, Antoni Abad, have signed a collaboration agreement to get the Reempresa service to the companies of Barcelona Oberta.

With this collaboration agreement, both Barcelona Oberta, an entity that groups together the 16 main commercial and tourist areas of the city of Barcelona, ​​such as the Cecot employer, consider that the Center of Reempresa de Catalunya, which allows to put in contact depositors and resellers , is a suitable mechanism to promote economic growth and the maintenance and creation of jobs and has instruments to involve the institutions, in order to coordinate them and make possible the concentration of data, information and knowledge about the process.

For Gabriel Jené, President of Barcelona Oberta, this agreement is important because “Reempresa is a useful tool for companies in the country and we also want it to be useful for the companies and business areas that are part of our association.”

Antoni Abad, president of the Cecot and the Center of Reempresa de Catalunya, “The involvement of institutions and institutions makes the project great” which aims to “achieve on the one hand that no profitable business goes down the blind and on the other hand The opportunity for companies, such as those that are part of Barcelona Oberta, to grow and expand lines of business in its same sector. ”

Therefore, as of this month, the companies and commercial axes associated to Barcelona Open will be able to go to the different points of attention of the Center of Reempresa where they will receive personalized attention. The objective of this collaboration is, on the one hand, to promote and structure the business transmission of the shops and axes associated to Barcelona Oberta and, on the other, to avoid the closure of economically viable businesses and the destruction of employment.

The most reputable economies of our surroundings have firmly committed themselves to a work of collaboration between different institutions and associations with the aim of encouraging the rethinking of their ability to generate wealth, innovation and employment at costs that are significantly lower than those of the creation, and at a much lower risk.

Favor the continuity of the companies
As important as the creation of companies is to promote the continuity and growth of existing ones. In this sense, the program Reempresa, promoted by the Cecot, is a new entrepreneurial entrepreneurship and growth model that consists of a mechanism according to which a new entrepreneur takes the testimony in the management of an existing company.

Reempresa started the service in 2011 and has achieved about 1,500 successful businesses, which have generated more than 67 million euros of investment induced and have saved more than 4,500 jobs in Catalonia. The retail sector accounts for 35.3% of all transfers across the country. 19% of successful businesses in the commercial sector have taken place in the city of Barcelona.

On the other hand, the reasons for transferring business are very diverse: from retirement (30%) to changes in profession (12.5%) or health problems (7.57%).

The agreement signed between the two entities means adding efforts, information and resources to increase the performance of a business growth model that could prevent the closure of the maximum number of companies during the execution time of the program in the city and Safeguard jobs, as demonstrated in these years of operation of the project.

sevenapp | 27 November 2017
Amics de La Rambla, amb la col·laboració del Palau Moja, posa en funcionament, el dilluns 27 de novembre, “La Rambla Barcelona”, un nou portal web que descobrirà les anècdotes, activitats, restaurants, personatges i secrets més ben guardats del carrer més (des)conegut de Barcelona. El projecte busca recuperar la força d’una zona que, tot i ser l’ànima de Barcelona, ha patit molt darrerament.

Amb motiu del llançament del portal web, “La Rambla Barcelona” sorteja dos bitllets d’avió a Barcelona des de qualsevol part d’Espanya, per a la persona que els guanyi o per a regalar, amb una visita guiada per l’emblemàtic passeig. Per participar, només s’ha de seguir l’Instagram oficial de “La Rambla Barcelona” (@laramblabarcelona) i etiquetar a tres amics a la darrera publicació. Els guanyadors s’anunciaran a La Rambla Barcelona el 27 de novembre.

Un projecte per enfortir La Rambla

Barcelona és una ciutat dinàmica i plena d’atractius. El seu interès per la cultura, per l’art i per les avantguardes, s’han reflectit sempre a la vida intensa de La Rambla. És zona de pas obligatòria per al vianant que vol perdre’s pels carrerons del Barri Gòtic i del Raval, per aquells que volen buscar cultura o aventures o per al barceloní que vol apropar-se al mar. La Rambla pertany, des de sempre, tant als habitants de la capital catalana com als visitants. “La Rambla Barcelona” vol que els barcelonins facin seu i coneguin millor aquest tram d’1,2 quilòmetres que és fonamental per a entendre la seva història, el seu present i el seu futur.

La cultura i l’art estaran molt presents a “La Rambla Barcelona,” on s’explicarà com s’han relacionat els artistes més influents de la nostra història amb la Rambla i com aquesta ha influït en la seva obra. Però a “La Rambla Barcelona” també es podrà trobar comerç, gastronomia, oci, anècdotes, personatges curiosos… una mica com a La Rambla mateixa.

“La Rambla Barcelona” és un projecte de l’associació Amics de La Rambla i el Palau Moja, la Casa del Patrimoni Català, un aparador per a descobrir tot el patrimoni de Catalunya des de La Rambla, i ha estat finançat amb fons europeus de desenvolupament regional dins del Pla de Competitivitat del Comerç 2017

És imprescindible que la futura Llei de Comerç de Catalunya inclogui el marc legal que permeti l’adaptació del model BID

Barcelona Oberta | 27 April 2017

Valoració i Propostes de Barcelona Oberta

Projecte de llei de comerç, serveis i fires
(tram. 200-00022/11)
1.- Horaris comercials: liberalització horaris establiments
no alimentaris menors de 150m2.
(Article 37. Exclusions de l’horari comercial general).
Els establiments comercials, de venda personalitzada o en
règim d’autoservei, els titulars dels quals siguin petites o
mitjanes empreses, que no pertanyin a grups empresarials,
sempre que la superfície de venda no superi els 150 m2 i
tinguin una oferta orientada essencialment a productes de
compra quotidiana d’alimentació́.
Proposta Barcelona Oberta:
La nostra proposta consisteix a ampliar aquesta flexibilització
a tota mena de sectors comercials, no només d’alimentació.
A Barcelona mateix, per a zones amb gran quantitat de petits
establiments comercials i amb elevada afluència de ciutadans
durant els diumenges i dies festius, com ara Gràcia o el Born,
aquesta flexibilització és una necessitat vital i una forma de
garantir-ne la viabilitat i la competitivitat davant les grans
ensenyes.
Per altre banda, cal valorar la possibilitat de no donar als
municipis l’opció de canviar el calendari de 10 festius
proposats per la Generalitat a fi d’evitar la confusió que
representa sobre el consumidor. També establir un calendari
que sigui productiu, orientat al consumidor i estable any rere
any a fi de crear una rutina i no la confusió que cada any
representa la proposta de dates diferents.

2.- Períodes de rebaixes: propugnar acords voluntaris.
(Article 21.Venda en rebaixes).
La forçosa desaparició dels períodes obligatoris en què poder
desenvolupar les rebaixes a causa de les vendes no
presencials i d’altres fenòmens similars, no qüestiona la
conveniència de disposar d’un calendari al més ordenat
possible que orienti els consumidors i contribueixi a dotar de
racionalitat i previsibilitat la funció comercial.
Proposta Barcelona Oberta:
El Consell Assessor de Comerç, com a instrument de
concertació entre el sector comercial i l’Administració, hauria
de fixar el termini recomanat d’inici i finalització de les
rebaixes i, eventualment, escurçar-ne la durada tradicional i
adaptar-ne la periodicitat a les noves pautes estacionals.
L’Administració s’hauria de fer ressò d’aquests períodes de
rebaixes recomanats a través de les campanyes institucionals
de recordatori dels drets i deures dels consumidors.

3.- Cooperació publico-privada als eixos i a les zones
comercials: àrees de gestió de centres comercials urbans.
BID’s (Business Improvement Districts).
Article 54. Àrees de gestió econòmica urbana.
La creixent complexitat en els usos i les demandes de l’espai
urbà s’accentua en les àrees amb forta concentració
comercial. Cal abordar aquesta complexitat i els problemes
que se’n deriven de forma col·laborativa entre els sector públic
i el sector privat. Aquest darrer, que no es limita estrictament
als comerços sinó que inclou tota mena de serveis que es
presten in situ a les persones, ha de disposar d’un marc
normatiu que permeti canalitzar la voluntat de
coresponsabilitzar-se en la millora i l’adequació de les zones
d’alta densitat d’activitats. A diversos països europeus s’han
anat implantant amb èxit els anomenats Business
Improvement Districts, model que pot ser una bona referència
a l’hora d’articular i implementar aquesta col·laboració publicoprivada.
El projecte conté un Títol vuitè dedicat íntegrament al Pla de
Foment de Ia Competitivitat del Comerç Urbà que té la finalitat
de “contribuir a Ia millora de I‘eficiència de I‘activitat comercial
i de la prestació de serveis, i que té per objecte posar a l’abast
del sector eines que permetin als empresaris més capacitat
d’adaptació a l’entorn econòmic i potenciar la capacitat de
creixement i d’internacionalització”. Tot i que l’Exposició de
Motius del Projecte es parla de la “possibilitat de crear entitats
de col·laboració públic privada que permetin el
desenvolupament de plans estratègics dissenyats per a
períodes determinats en àrees urbanes prèviament
delimitades”, es deixa expressament el seu desenvolupament normatiu pel futur.

És per tot això que és ja imprescindible que la futura Llei de
Comerç de Catalunya inclogui el marc legal permeti
l’adaptació del model BID a les característiques peculiars del
model comercial mediterrani i català, sense deixar-ho per més
endavant.
Les característiques bàsiques que hauria de tenir el BID català
i que hauria de recollir la Llei de Comerç són les següents:
1. Denominació, característiques i funcions dels BID
2. Iniciativa per a la constitució del BID
3. Procediment per l’aprovació i efectiva constitució del BID
4. Organització, funcionament i vigència del BID
Proposta Barcelona Oberta:
La Llei ha de comprometre el govern de Catalunya a
desenvolupar la normativa que reguli aquest tipus de gestió en
l’espai públic, sigui perquè disposa de la capacitat legislativa o
perquè insta l’administració de l’Estat espanyol a impulsar-la.
Mentrestant, la DGC difondrà i debatrà amb els municipis les
característiques específiques que hauria de tenir l’aplicació
d’aquest model a Catalunya promovent grups de treball
territorials mixtos i experiències pilot.

4.- Competències de l’Ajuntament de Barcelona en
matèria de Comerç.
El Govern municipal considera que el projecte de Llei de
Comerç de la Generalitat de Catalunya no recull l’especificitat
que atribueix la Carta Municipal a Barcelona.
El projecte aprovat pel Consell Executiu resta competències al
municipi en matèria de foment de la competitivitat, de
definició de les zones de degustació, en inspecció i sanció i en
modificació d’horaris en determinats supòsits.
La Carta Municipal de Barcelona recull en la seva clàusula
general de competències que l’Ajuntament pot promoure
qualsevol classe d’activitat i prestar tots els serveis públics
que contribueixin a satisfer les necessitats dels ciutadans que
no siguin expressament atribuïts a altres administracions
públiques, així com activitats i serveis complementaris als
desenvolupats per altres administracions.
Proposta Barcelona Oberta:
Respectar les competències que la Carta Municipal atribueix a
l’Ajuntament de Barcelona en matèria de Comerç.

5.- Subscrivim amb la seva totalitat les propostes
presentades per la entitat RETAULCAT relacionades amb
els punts següents:

b) Venda Online

  • Barcelona Oberta participates in the conference “The future of the commercial axes” | Barcelona Oberta

Barcelona Oberta participates in the conference “The future of the commercial axes”

Barcelona Oberta | 27 April 2017

The Trade Office of the Barcelona City Council and IESE organize the “The future of the trade axes: from local trade to integral urban economic development”, which will take place on 21 and 29 March and 3 May. Throughout three days, attendees will discuss how to approach the transition of commercial axes in areas of urban economic promotion (APEU) and reflect on the model of management and participation.

Book your place here: https://apli.iese.edu/Tracking/cnsee.aspx?mai=47829984

The conference wants to be a starting point shared with the commercial sector on the creation of the APEU, for which the Council of Commerce and Markets works. For this reason, the people who attend will enjoy a space for debate, awareness, training and constitution of agreements, and may participate in two workshops and a day of conclusions and dissemination of knowledge.

The first workshop, scheduled for the 21st, will discuss the transition from the commercial axis to the urban economic promotion area model and analyze the benefits of being part of them for the economic and social actors of the city. The second workshop, scheduled for the 29th, will focus on the discussion of the APEU management and participation model and on the involvement of the big brands. Finally, on May 3, the conference will conclude with an appointment on the future of trade and self-management models of urban economic promotion areas, which will be attended by experts.

It will be three days to deepen the challenges of the urban economy and the implementation of governance models that allow self-management of the city’s commercial areas to make them more competitive, accessible and attractive.
