Barcelona is one of the most visited cities in Europe and is currently ranked 5th in ICCA’s list of most popular destinations for meetings and events. This success is due to the city’s wealth of contrasts, wide-ranging gastronomic options and an infrastructure ideally suited to this market sector. It is a city that appeals to everybody: history buffs and art lovers, sports fans and followers of fashion, discerning gourmets and pleasure-seekers, those attracted to the sea and others who prefer the mountains as well as visitors who are here to work. Barcelona is simultaneously dynamic and relaxing, modern and classical, traditional and “designer”; Barcelona offers something for everybody and leaves no-one indifferent.
Since the Olympic Games of ’92 the city has never stopped growing and evolving. It has now become the neurological centre of the Mediterranean, with a capacity to host large-scale product launches, international congresses and high quality incentive programmes, as well as offering tourist attractions to suit every taste. Barcelona plays host to leading annual events such as the World Mobile Congress, the meetings and incentives trade fair EIBTM and high profile medical and pharmaceutical congresses, including European Cardiology, Diabetes, Respiratory, etc. To be able to do this the city offers more than 50,000 hotel rooms, a huge variety of exhibition halls and meeting spaces, restaurants, venues for special events, high quality private transport for delegates and a full range of ancillary services. Once you add to all that an ideal climate and excellent land and air connections, the City of Gaudí is guaranteed to deliver a highly successful business event.
