Conference Venue

Centre Convencions Internacional Barcelona

The CCIB is located in Barcelona’s new seafront esplanade, Diagonal Mar, forming part of the new hip business and technology district known as 22@Barcelona. The CCIB is surrounded by a wide range of accommodation with more than 4,800 rooms available. Modern facilities, architectural design, innovative technological equipment and an unrivalled beachfront location have led the CCIB to position itself as a European benchmark.

The Convention Centre is an emblematic, versatile and functional building, designed to give more prominence to light and adapted to host all kinds of events. This is possible because of its versatility, easy access from the outside, ceilings up to 12m high and a great lift system.
