We all have been spectators of the cinema's changes on the last 25 years, especially with the introduction of digital technology on screens. During all that time, CineEurope has been at the forefront exploring and showing year by year all the novelties and trends in the market. This year they celebrate its 25th anniversary (June 20-23) so we didn't want to miss the opportunity to interview them to talk about the convention, the novelties that are coming and the activities they have prepared for this so special edition: the number 25!
Major, Regional, and Independent cinema exhibitors have an annual meeting at CineEurope but, what stands out CineEurope above other similar events?
CineEurope is the longest-running and most successful European convention and trade show for Major, Regional, and Independent cinema exhibitors. Theatre owners and operators, and those allied to the industry come to CineEurope each year to seek knowledge on the latest trends and issues; learn about new marketing ideas; network with industry peers; see Hollywood, international, and independent films and product presentations to make informed booking decisions; and to find the latest and best technologies, entertainment, services, comforts, and conveniences to make their theatres must-attend destinations. If you want to remain competitive and keep your audience coming back to your theatre, you should attend CineEurope.
We are looking forward to our BIGGEST attendance yet this year!
This year the show celebrates its 25th birthday, can you advance us some of the novelties for CineEurope 2016?
We are celebrating our 25th anniversary with commemorative program materials, studio prizes, surprise gifts and events all throughout the convention and a Final Night Silver Anniversary Party.
Who can attend the show, only professionals?

And for those exhibiting for the first time at CineEurope, what advice can you give them?
We are excited to return to the CCIB (Centre Convencíons Internacional Barcelona) in Barcelona, Spain from 20-23 June 2016 as we celebrate our 25th Anniversary. CCIB Exhibitor Services will once again be your one-stop shop for all supplies, products and services for your booth at CineEurope. For all questions, please do not hesitate to contact them.
Anyway, we remember you that it is very important to notify CCIB Exhibitor Services whether or not you will be utilizing the booth shell scheme that is offered to you with your booth contract. And also, per safety regulations instituted by the city of Barcelona and enforced by the CCIB, please be aware that you must wear steel-toed shoes during trade show move-in and move-out.
