A contract until 2021 for the concession of Barcelona International Convention Center

After the call for tender launched by the city of Barcelona, Générale Location wins the contract for the space management of the International Convention Center and of the Forum.

Benefiting from its solid experience in space management for government organizations, Générale Location will bring its assistance and counsel to the Catalan city in the design of the Convention Center and Forum, future key elements of the city 's heritage. The Convention Center will officially open its doors to host the event 2004 Forum of Cultures.

The International Convention Center, in a prime location in Barcelona, will offer a large reception capacity in total unison with the organizers ' requirements. In a study published in June 2001 by ICCA *, Barcelona comes ahead as one of the most looked after destinations by organizers of international events. Thanks to its reception capacities, the Barcelona Center will fully meet the market 's expectations.

With this contract, Générale Location wins the trust of a large metropolis at the crossroad of all three of its strategic directions of development: the international, the events, and the management of spaces. In addition this activity will generate internal synergies with the other business specialties offered by the Group.

The city of Barcelona estimated that the contract should generate net sales of about E 37m per year as soon as the Center reaches its cruising speed.

Générale Location is proud to be part of this immense projectand thanks Barcelona, the Catalan city, a major European metropolis, for the confidence it placed in it.
