Organisers of EIBTM have confirmed the show will remain in Barcelona until 2016 and will continue to be hosted in the Fira Gran Via.

President of the Barcelona Tourisme Convention Bureau, Joan Gaspart, said Barcelona has lot of promise for the future.

“Both in terms of the meetings industry and the tourism industry as many have discovered the potential of the Catalan’s capital. Our continued involvement with EIBTM, helps us to reinforce our assessment”.

Reed Travel Exhibitions’ EIBTM exhibition director, Graeme Barnett, said  “EIBTM has become synonymous with Barcelona since we brought the show here in 2004.  As one of the world’s leading tourist centres with influences in commerce, education, entertainment, media, fashion, science, the arts and sport, Barcelona is the ideal city for meetings, events, conferences and in our case, EIBTM.”
