Convention Centre

An exceptional meeting or event deserves an exceptional space.

An exceptional meeting or event deserves an exceptional space.
Built by the prestigious Catalan architect, Josep Lluís Mateo, it has been designed so as to give paramount importance to light. Designed as a covered courtyard, the building’s curved metal facade was designed to minimise the building’s environmental impact.

An incredibly versatile and multifuncional space that is made up of 39 well-lit rooms spread over 3 main floors and 2 mezzanine floors, the building boasts the dynamic Multipurpose Room with a floor area of 11,340 sqm that can be turned into 8 different spaces. Another outstading space is the Banqueting Hall that boasts incredible views down towards the Mediterranean.

Auditori Fòrum

As seen from the sky, this building, designed by the Swiss architects Herzog & DeMeuron, is a perfect equilateral triangle with 180 m long sides and a height of 25 m, suspended on pillars.

Geometric spaces, changing tones depending on the light, glass doors and a metallic kaleidoscopic interior are some of the qualities that make up this building’s strong personality. The shape of the courtyards emerges from the juxtaposition of the two urban design elements of the Cerdà Plan and the stretch of road that is the Diagonal.
Its rough blue facade is crisscrossed by different strips of glass that suggest the idea of water running down from the roof. The interiors of the auditorium and exhibition halls are designed to be hybrid spaces.

The capacity of the Auditorium is 3,084 people.

AUDITORIUM BOXES

Situated on the upper floor and with two access doors, it has a lobby of 5,000 sqm and 743 seats.

It also has 5 translation booths and one integrated technician’s cabin.

Did you know….
