The Estrella Damm Old Brewery is where the next BNEW will take place
The event will address, among other things, topics such as the balance between new consumption guidelines and sustainability
The Barcelona Zona Franca Consortium (CZFB) has signed a cooperation agreement for the incorporation of the Estrella Damm Old Brewery as the venue that will host the entire logistics program of the next edition of Barcelona New Economy Week (BNEW). As such, Damm becomes the BVenue Partner for the B2B event that will take place in Barcelona between the 5 to the 8 of October, and that, thanks to its hybrid model, intends to surpass the 11000 participants from all over the world that followed the first edition.
Between the 5 to the 8 of October, the Estrella Damm Old Brewery will host debates on key issues such as the challenges of last mile logistics, the balance between new consumption guidelines and sustainability, issues resulting from the saturation of large port infrastructure, or the effects of the trade war between the United States and China.

Navarro has stated that "Damm is a benchmark for Barcelona's culture, and we are proud to be able to incorporate the emblematic Estrella Damm Old Brewery into BNEW as the headquarters for BNEW Logistics, a sector the brand itself knows well and which has a vital role to play in the development of the new economy for the Barcelona Zona Franca Consortium".
For his part, Villavecchia has indicated that "we are pleased that BNEW Logistics is being held this year in the Old Brewery, not only due to our bond with the Barcelona Zona Franca Consortium, but also because logistics is a key element in our company, and is a sector that currently is seeing a very noteworthy transformation. We at Damm wish that this edition of BNEW once again becomes a success and are convinced that the Old Brewery shall be the ideal environment for envisioning new solutions in the face of those challenges that the new economy currently presents."
