281 Congresses until 2021

Catalonia has confirmed, for the present, the holding of 281 professional events up to 2021. This figure could increase once the candidatures are decided for new congresses and which are currently to be decided. More specifically, the city of Barcelona already has guaranteed the holding of 223 congresses, which will represent the arrival of at least 753.000 delegates.

Meetings tourism in Barcelona closed 2014 with a slight drop in the number of delegates attending congresses, conventions and conferences, specifically 0.7%, and with 580,000 delegates. Nevertheless, we should take into account the cyclic nature of some congresses which are held in a different city each year. In the same period, the hotel stays of congress delegates increased by 7% due to the prolongation of permanence in the city.

The report that is produced annually by the International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA) placed the city of Barcelona in 2014 in fifth position in the world ranking of organiser cities of professional meetings.

Regarding the rest of Catalonia, at present 58 professional events have been confirmed until 2021. Among them feature the Congress of Practical Paediatrics and the FUNCA Congress – 40th Meeting of the Registry and Epidemiology of Cancer Group of Spanish-speaking countries, which will take place in the city of Reus, as well as the Congress of the Spanish Society of Oncology Nursing and the National Congress of Oenological Investigation, which will be held in the city of Tarragona.
