Exponor successfully closed the first edition of +Concreta, held on 16th and 17th November in the Alfândega do Porto building. This event, dedicated to the world of architecture and design has become a landmark for trends and innovations in Portuguese products and materials. It brought together a variety of stakeholders such as architects, designers, as well as other professionals and students from the sectors represented, with a total of 3,195 visitors.


In addition to an exhibition space that brought together around 40 national companies, the Alfândega space also hosted conferences, organised by the Ordem dos Arquitetos - Secção Regional Norte (OASRN), curated by the collective depA Architects, which filled the spaces and generated notable interest among the participants. In the Great Hall, the aMAG publishing house also presented the international ateliers ATELJÉ Ö and ORDINAIRE which completely sold out the area. The networking dinner, another new feature of +Concreta, was also very popular, bringing together around 100 architects with various exhibitors, promoting strategic connections.


The first edition of +Concreta came as a surprise to national companies, with a distinctive format, but from the outset it offered good reasons for them to guarantee their presence. The event premium won over entrepreneurs and proved to be the ideal opportunity to generate business.
