Home BARCELONA CONFERENCE CENTRE
The Barcelona Conference Centre currently has two buildings which can host conferences and large-scale meetings. These two venues are only 2.5 km from each other and although both share the same operating philosophy, they are slightly different.
Constructed in 1963 as part of the Barcelona Trade Fair Complex, the Barcelona Conference Centre was totally renovated in 1992 to mark the organisation of the Olympic Games and to bring the centre in line with the latest requirements in terms of services, image and information technology.
The centre has 12 conference rooms and is capable of hosting meetings of between 10 and 25,000 people. It has an auditorium which can comfortably seat 1,650 people and which is equipped with the most advanced technology for international business meetings.
The 5,600 m² exhibition area has the additional advantage of being able to use the adjoining pavilions of the Barcelona Trade Fair. This means that the venue can host large events thanks to the additional 240,000m² of space available. It also has a café/restaurant equipped to provide catering services for up to 2,000 delegates at the same time, in addition to all the other services required when organising events (banks, tourist office, internet access, fax, travel agencies, tobacconist’s, souvenir shops).
The Montjuic Convention Centre
Constructed in 1995, the centre was initially intended to host travelling fairs and conferences which required exhibition space. It is equipped with the most advanced technology for the organisation of events and improved facilities reduce the time required to set up and dismantle events.
The centre has a total exhibition area of 77,000 m². There are 10 rooms which can hold between 30 and 200 people and an auditorium which can comfortably seat 465 people. The venue is equipped with all the necessary facilities and services (two restaurants to provide catering services, tourist services, banks, souvenir shops, a travel agency, numerous private restaurants located inside).
Located in the centre of Barcelona, the complex is only 12 minutes from El Prat International Airport and is easily accessible by the underground and by bus. In addition, ample hotel accommodation (2,000 rooms) is available within a 15-minute radius.
