New business ideas that burst into the real estate market

The “Gamer” world bets on Barcelona commercial premises to expand


The popularity of the video game industry has caused the volume of companies dedicated to this area to keep on growing despite coronavirus.

Advised by the consulting firm Cat Real Estate, Gamers Community 101 chooses the Catalan capital to expand by opening new stores.

Barcelona, ​​November 5, 2020.- Retail industry is undergoing an evident transformation as a result of new technologies, especially those regarding e-commerce. Covid19 has stimulated an acceleration of this commercial revolution that can cause zero demand in many commercial premises, especially in areas with little pedestrian flow.

However, there are also good news for Barcelona’s retail industry. From Cat Real Estate, a leader in wealth management and real estate consulting, they have perceived the appearance of new business ideas that continue to bet on commercial premises aiming to position themselves and gain visibility in the city. In fact, there are brands that have finally found their niche market and have managed to implant their product in the competitive retail market. Gamers Community 101 is a clear example of it.


Entrepreneurship. Videogames is a rising sector in Spain


The gamer community already has a store on Calle Marina in Barcelona. They have opted for Barcelona to continue its expansion strategy. “It is a 400 sqm premises fully adapted with the latest technologies where you can test and share the experiences of the latest video games developments. The creation of Gamers Community has been a great social success, it does not stop increasing. This is why the management team is already looking for new locations in the city”, adds Nacho Castella, General Director of Cat Real Estate.

In Spain, for example, gamers spend on average of 6.7 hours per week in video games, according to data published by the Spanish Association of Videogames (AEVI) in its 2019 annual report. These figures increase in other European countries such as the United Kingdom, with a total of 11.6 hours per week; Germany, with 8.3 hours per week; and France, with 8.6 hours per week.

The real estate agency, consolidated as one of the most active consultants in the retail sector, especially in commercial premises and offices in prime areas of cities such as Madrid or Barcelona, ​​is still fully operational in the middle of the Covid crisis, providing complete coverage to investors and homeowners and also new entrepreneurs wanting to create new real estate companies.
