1 - Barcelona - CCIB

Two spectacularly designed buildings, joined by an underground walkway for maximum interaction between the meeting spaces and the auditorium, combine functionality and divisibility with the city's emblematic architecture.
Located in a new Diagonal Mar district of Barcelona, the CCIB is a symbol of modernity.


Top of the list in terms of favourite destinations, Barcelona has considerable assets:
- a rich cultural heritage: urban architecture, museums, monuments, theatres,
- a dynamic town both on the economic and innovative fronts,
- a wide range of leisure and sporting activities,
- a multi-faceted cultural life (shows, music, theatre and activities...),
- a well developed system of public transport,
- a sea-side town with an agreeable climate all year long.

Catalonia, whose capital is Barcelona, is a region with a strong identity that proudly exhibits its roots, its culture and traditions. Barcelona is a city in permanent effervescence with shows, excursions, sporting activities...

A city of the moment, Barcelona also exists through its past, and fondly recalls the whims of that timeless architect, Gaudí. Life is not long enough to take full advantage of Barcelona, the city never sleeps, it parties, it bubbles...


Key points

The biggest Convention Center in South Europe, both in terms of surface area and reception capacity. The CCIB is unquestionably a unique point of reference in Conference Centers, both due to its state-of-the-art technology and the design of its completely column-free spaces bathed in natural light, all set in a privileged sea-front area.

  • The Convention Center: 67,000 sqm:
    - a multifunctional exhibition area of 11,000 sqm,
    - 45 meeting rooms from 35 sqm to 2,500 sqm,
    - a magnificent sea-view Banqueting Hall,
    - total capacity for 15,000 participants in one single space.
  • The Forum building: a new auditorium concept:
    - 3,200 seats,
    - modular stage area,
    - its triangular construction, with sides that are 180 m long and 25 m high, appears to float over the Forum square.
  • Strong modular format that allows the hosting of all types of events, whatever their size.
  • Complete integration of all new resources and solutions linked to new technologies. Exceptional position, both in terms of the city and in terms of its location by the sea.
