The world economy is finally showing signs of picking itself up from the doldrums of the economic recession. Across the globe, cities renowned a being the hub of business enterprise are reasserting themselves and providing fertile ground for business and investment.
One such city is Barcelona, Spain. This city has a long history as both a cultural and a business centre for Spain and Europe.

Barcelona has over 330 hotels from budget to 5 star. That’s a grand total of 32000 rooms. Many of the hotels, especially the 4 and 5 stars, offer excellent business facilities which can include meeting rooms and conference hall, business centres, secretarial services and a lot more.
Conferences and Conventions
