THE WORLD COMES TOGETHER TO HAVE FUN FUN FUN IN BARCELONA

One of the key highlights of the week in Barcelona at ibtm world (www.ibtmworld.com) is the number of social events that bring a sense of party to the event and connects the international meetings industry community.

It all starts with the Welcome Reception held in partnership with Barcelona Convention Bureau onsite at the venue on the first night of ibtm world.  This year’s theme will be called “Deliciously Barcelona” celebrating the fact that Catalonia has been awarded European Gastronomy Region for 2016, food, music, culture, wine, and the opportunity to party with friends and make new ones.

Exhibitors get to display their culture and brand by creating their own events and parties for Networking Hour on Wednesday 30 November.  This time from 18.00 – 19.00 hrs, the show floor comes alive with music, entertainment, food and drinks from hosted receptions from an array of exhibitors that gives attendees the chance to stayon a while before heading into Barcelona for their own events and a brand new event replacing what has historically been known as club night.  More information about the exhibitor events can be found on the website:

This year club night becomes Rendezvous at ibtm world. Holland and the MPI Foundation will turn Opium Mar orange for the night. All proceeds from the event will be invested into the MPI Foundation on scholarships, grants and pan-industry research, all of which will help to secure the future success of the meetings and events industry, so get your ticket now online or at the show from the MPI stand.

Prestigious Award for Barcelona Convention Bureau

In this world where there is a plethora of industry awards, it was good to see a Convention Bureau being presented with the prestigious IAPCO National Supplier Award by Professional Congress Organisers.

Nominated by well-known industry veteran Paloma Bellés of AOPC, Spain, the Barcelona CVB was selected from a list of candidates in recognition of their proven track record of working closely with PCOs and by being internationally recognised as one of the best Convention Bureaux in the world.

“AOPC was proud to nominate the Barcelona Convention Bureau (BCB), to receive the distinction of the IAPCO Supplier Award recognizing the professionalism of the BCB, and the dynamism and dedication of the entire team, that has united various partners, suppliers and hosts to continuously support and bring business to its destination. Since its earlier days, almost 30 years ago, we have all witnessed the growth and development of Barcelona over the years, becoming one of the top leading destinations in our industry, competing fairly with other European and overseas destinations”, said Paloma, at the award presentation during EIBTM. “Whilst without singling out anyone, we would like to recognize the forward-looking strategically-thinking and, most particularly, all the personal investment of Mrs. Airy Garrigosa, its former leader, and ask her together with Christoph Tessmar, as present Director of the Barcelona Convention Bureau, to receive your well-deserved award on behalf of the BCB and its whole professional team and members.”
