BCN Meetings at the top ICCA


Barcelona Convention Bureau is a specialized Barcelona Tourism program dedicated to business tourism. Each year BCB prepares a statistical document related to the meetings held in Barcelona. A document prepared from our own funds and research, which is very useful for us to understand the ecosystem where we are immersed.
In 2018, a total of 400 congresses were held in the city of Barcelona. Translated into the number of participants, it gives us a total of 375,734. 80 events were held between Conferences, Symposiums and Courses, with a total of 10,750 participants. Regarding conventions and incentives, it reached 1,248 with 264,851 participants. Therefore, a total of 1,728 meetings were held in which 651,335 people participated. Years ago, Barcelona was positioning itself as one of the first cities in Europe and the world to host a greater number of international congresses. The new ICCA (International Congress and Convention Association) ranking placed Barcelona in the first place in terms of number of participants. The data becomes even more relevant when you analyze the competitors and see that you are above Vienna, Paris, Munich, Berlin, Amsterdam, Toronto, etc. Regarding the number of international congresses, Barcelona ranked fourth with 163, only below Paris with 212, Vienna 172 and Madrid 165. COVID-19 has been devastating both humanly and professionally.
These are data that we will have to recover, with a lot of effort, but with the illusion intact!
