International Convention Centre (CCIB)

Barcelona is a world leading city for trade fairs, congresses and business conventions*. The Barcelona International Convention Centre (CCIB), Southern Europe’s largest, is right alongside the Diagonal Mar Shopping Centre. The Convention Centre was designed by Catalan architect Josep Lluís Mateo and the auditorium is the work of Swiss architects Herzog & De Meuron.

The CCIB is made up of two large buildings of great architectural value linked by an underground walkway. The convention centre and auditorium receive more than 3 million visitors to the 600 events hosted there since it opened.
