Celebrate it in Barcelona


Lively, modern, international, mediterranean, multicultural, enterprising, friendly and attractive. With a fantastic gastronomy and great architectural and cultural heritage, there is no doubt that we are talking about Barcelona. There are few cities in the world that can offer as many different reasons to celebrate an important date there.

Sat on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, its strategic location, a modern, thorough network of services, wide ranging experience of hosting all kinds of events and its own particularly inviting character have all made Barcelona one of the three most important business tourism destinations, according to the ICCA’s annual ranking. (Position no. 1 in 2017).
