Catalonia Congresses and Events is a programme established by the Catalunya Convention Bureau to identify a network of Catalan destinations that are equipped to host congresses, providing first-rate, modern, accessible, well-communicated facilities and organisational experience in the sector.
Moreover, the Catalunya Convention Bureau has produced a publication to identify the destinations that are best equipped to ensure the necessary capacity and services to organise congresses. To date, nine such destinations have been identified: Lleida, Reus, PortAventura, Tarragona, Sitges, Castelldefels, Barcelona, Lloret de Mar and Girona.
The publication includes an information sheet on each of the destinations, describing their facilities, capacity and services. Also included are information sheets on alternative destinations in Catalonia and meeting spaces with a global offer for the organisation of events.

Besides this material, the Catalonia Congresses and Events project, under which the publication has produced, also includes a description of tools and processes and a promotional and marketing plan to attract congresses. The aim of this project is to organize and highlight existing facilities in Catalonia for the organization of congresses, helping to communicate and promote such resources amongst the target group.
Moreover, and to further aid the attraction of congresses, the Catalunya Convention Bureau has established the Programa Ambassadors (link in Catalan), under which the leading opinion makers and professionals are identified with a view to creating new business opportunities and generating greater knowledge about our country.
