BARCELONA, leader in tourist destination, has a wide offer of thematic routes.
Barcelona & Catalonia TOURIST DESTINATION
BARCELONA.- SECOND EUROPEAN DESTINATION MICE MOST REQUESTED
According to the report of the American Express Meetings & Events, Barcelona is the second most requested European destination for tourism congresses, conventions, meetings and events (MICE). Although technological innovations seem to have a decisive importance in meetings tourism, at the moment, the data does not jeopardize this position of both the city and the province of Barcelona and the virtual meetings still do not threaten MICE tourism.
The organizers of congresses (OPC) remain attentive to the new proposals, but the reality is that a congress or a fair have a value that is not replaced by a virtual connection.
Virtual encounters, for the moment, proliferate for small groups or to add to a specific person in a face-to-face meeting. The fairs and congresses do not disappear, although the new technologies have been transforming them, since we can count on the virtual presence of some speakers not present at the event, but who manage to enrich it in content.
