Calendar of business activities in Catalonia

Catalonia is a region in the southern Mediterranean with a robust economy, especially in the industrial, commercial and service sectors. Thanks to Catalonia’s organisational capacity, many companies and institutions choose to host their meetings and conferences here. One significant example is the Mobile World Congress.

Girona, Tarragona, Lleida and Barcelona were selected as the best destinations for meetings and conferences in Europe, according to the World Travel Awards, and they welcome countless people each year. The mild climate and after-work deals, focused on culture, gastronomy and wine tourism, make the conference attendees’ work worth the while.

Here are examples of the main business meetings that are organised in Catalonia.
