Congress Venue

PALAU CONGRESSOS BARCELONA

The Barcelona Conference Centre has positioned itself as the preferred venue of international firms and organizations looking for a large, versatile, central space in which to hold their events in the Catalan Capital. The 1,000-seat auditorium, 5,600 sqm of multipurpose space, 10 break-out rooms and an impressive terrace with stunning views over the Magic Fountains of Montjuïc and their legendary show of water, light and music are the most distinguishing features of this historical venue. The original building was created for Barcelona’s Universal Exposition in 1929 and housed the Projection Palace. In the 1960s it was converted into the Palace of Nations and the in the 1990s it was remodelled to create the Conference Centre. In 1992 it served as the Press Centre for the Barcelona Olympic Games and replaced the main Opera Hall of Barcelona during its refurbishment. One of its most highly-rated features is its position which, apart from being central, is next to one of the most enchanting sights of the city – the Montjuic Magic Fountains – as well as being surrounded by some of the city’s most iconic buildings such as the National Palace, the Alfonso XIII and Victoria Eugenia Palaces, the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion and Las Arenas shopping mall.
