IBTM World commits to Barcelona until 2022

Business tourism trade fair IBTM World will continue to be held at Fira de Barcelona’s Gran Via venue until at least 2022.

Organiser Reed Exhibitions has signed a three-year renewal agreement with the Barcelona Convention Bureau and the trade fair institution.

The international event was held for the first time in Barcelona in 2004, with renewal of the agreement strengthens the existing relationship between the three organisations.

“We are excited to continue our close working relationship with Barcelona over the next three years,” said event director David Thompson.

“The city is a great host for IBTM World and Fira de Barcelona’s Gran Via venue provides the perfect facilities for our needs.”

Pere Camprubí, external business director of Fira de Barcelona, said they were “very satisfied with the continuity of IBTM World”.

“This agreement is great news for the city that strengthens its position as a benchmark in the field of business tourism,” said Camprubí.

The next edition of the event will be held from December 1 to 3, 2020.
