Meetings & Sports

Catalonia, a Mediterranean land, is also a sports land. Sports, in the plural. Because being surrounded by the sea, the mountains, the sun, and the Mediterranean climate can only lead to the practice of different sports and leisure time outdoors all throughout the year. 

Running in the city or enjoying the nature, cycling by the sea or on mountain slopes, skating, climbing, enjoying sea sports such as swimming, surfing or sailing; and when the snow comes, go skiing, go snow - hoeing or sleighing, and enjoy the white world of the Pyrenees.  

Sport is life and health, and a land like Catalonia invites us to practice it to find the best version of us and take advantage of a privileged environment. Sport transmits positive values related to health, effort and teamwork that can be applied to life and business alike. 

Catalonia is a world benchmark in the field of sports, boasting assets such as its Olympic legacy, Barcelona Football Club, athletes and champions in many sporting disciplines, and a consolidated sports business and associative fabric. All of this -the combination of climate, quality sports facilities and its excellent MICE tourism- makes Catalonia an ideal destination to organise:

Congresses, conventions, corporate meetings and product presentations in the sports sector.

Incentive and team building activities related to sport.

Incentive trips in the context of major sporting events (sports corporate hospitality): FCB Barcelona,

Formula 1, Moto GP, Banc Sabadell Open Tennis Barcelona and RCD Espanyol.
