Major international activity
The general manager of the CCIB, Marc Rodríguez, stated that “we have started the year with optimism and prudence, with the aim of continuing to contribute to the economic recovery of the city and our environment.” Specifically, the CCIB has already hosted 8 events during the first two months of the year and the arrival of the first major medical congresses consolidates the positive trend of a return to normality as evidenced by the more than 70 events scheduled for 2022.
In this regard, Rodríguez reiterated the importance of medical congresses because “they are a space that promotes the exchange of ideas and scientific knowledge for the benefit of society as a whole.” He also stressed that in the city and in the country “we have top-level health professionals and centres and they are a great pole of knowledge and innovation” closely linked to the arrival of these events.
Specifically, in 2022 the CCIB will host around twenty major medical events, such as the International Neuromodulation Society (INS) World Congress, the World Congress for Gastrointestinal Cancer Specialists (WCGI), the European Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology Society (CIRSE) Congress, the International Society of Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology (CIRSE) Congress, the International Society of Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology (ICSIR) Congress, the International Society of Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology (ICSIR) Congress and the International Society of Cardiology (ICSIR) Congress, the congress of the International Society of Paediatric Oncology (SIOP), the congress of the European Academy of Paediatric Societies (EAPS), the congress of the European Association of Nuclear Medicine (EANM) and the European Breast Cancer Congress (EBCC).
The Barcelona International Convention Centre (CCIB), located in the Besós area, in the technology and business district known as 22@, is made up of the Convention Centre and the Forum Auditorium, with a combined surface area of 100,000 square metres. Its management by Fira de Barcelona, together with Gran Via and Montjuïc venues, allows for the integrated operation of the city’s three major trade fair and congress venues, which will strengthen the international positioning of the institution and the city.
