This year, the EBART Congress will be held at the emblematic Palau de Congressos venue, located within the Montjuic fairs and conventions site (Fira Montjuïc of Barcelona).
Unlike previous years, at this new edition we expect more attendees and we also wanted to give you the opportunity to spend two days in one of the most beautiful parts of the city.
Located in the centre of Barcelona, the Montjuïc venue was built in 1929 to host the Barcelona International Exhibition and has become very popular since then.
In the 60s it turned into the Palace of Nations and in 1990 it was remodelled to create the Conference Centre. Then, in 1992 it served as the Press Centre for the Barcelona Olympic Games and replaced the main Opera Hall of Barcelona during its refurbishment.
With its long history, the venue has become part of Barcelona’s identity and it’s definitely an important driver of economic, corporate and social progress.
Apart from the importance of the international events held at this venue and its position as the preferred location for any kind of event in the Catalan Capital, the Fira Montjuïc is also renowned for its impressive surroundings: standing right next to Plaça Espanya, one of the city’s main meeting points, the venue is also surrounded by expansive green zones and Olympic facilities.
The Reina Maria Cristina avenue leads up to the slopes of Mount Montjuïc and it ends at the Magic Fountain and the Palau Nacional (which today houses the National Art Museum of Catalonia, MNAC). In the afternoon, after the EBART Congress, we highly recommend you take a nice, gentle stroll to the Magical Fountain and watch the legendary water, light and music show.
