Exhib confab to bow in Spain on June 18

BERLIN — CineEurope, Europe’s leading theatrical exhibitor trade fair, is moving from Amsterdam to Barcelona next year.

Formerly known as Cinema Expo, CineEurope 2012 will take place June 18-21 at Barcelona’s Intl. Convention Center in the city’s Diagonal Mar area. The Intl. Union of Cinemas’ confab has been held in Amsterdam for the past 15 years.

“The move to Barcelona represents CineEurope’s dedication to better serving the European cinema exhibition and distribution communities,” CineEurope managing director Robert Sunshine said. “CineEurope management and UNIC consulted with constituents and the overwhelming feedback was that a move to Spain would be a beneficial change.” — Ed Meza
