Trade fairs: How to make the most of your stay at Hotel Continental and Hotel Continental Palacete
Barcelona is one of the most popular locations to host international trade fairs and 2024 will certainly prove to be no different. The good news is as always, the staff at Hotel Continental and Hotel Continental Palacete are already gearing up for these events. Let’s first briefly examine two upcoming Barcelona events in more detail. We can then move on to discuss why our properties represent the ideal solutions for visitors from all walks of life.
MWC Barcelona 2024
Many will argue that the Mobile World Congress (MWC) is the most well-known trade show in Barcelona. This event has been hosted at the Fira de Barcelona (Barcelona Fair) on Gran Via since 2013 and this year is already predicted to attract a wide audience. Expect to interact with 2,400 exhibitors and more than 300 keynote speakers in order to appreciate the latest technological innovations (especially those within the smartphone community).
Experts predict that well over 110,000 attendees will be taking part in MWC Barcelona 2024. The event itself is being held from 26 to 29 February and there is little doubt that the information presented will provide any tech professional with a competitive edge. Thankfully, our MWC Barcelona hotels are happy to cater to your bespoke requirements.
The Seafood Expo Global 2024
Do you happen to be a seafood vendor? If so, it pays to attend this year’s Global Seafood Expo in Barcelona. Billed as the largest seafood trade event in the world, this fair will host well over 2,000 exhibitors and more than 29,000 buyers are expected to be present. As if these figures were not impressive enough, were you aware that a staggering 200,000 seafood products will be on display? Whether you are a buyer, seller, merchandiser, or third-party distributor, the 2024 Barcelona Global Seafood Expo should not be missed.
Similar to the 2024 Mobile World Congress, this exposition is being held at Fira de Barcelona. You can choose to visit between 23 and 25 April. To put the size of this fair into perspective, the official organisers claim that representatives from 87 different countries will be present. Be sure to register in advance so that you do not miss out on such an amazing networking opportunity.
How Can We Help?
The staff of our hotels attend to the needs of fair attendees with a vocation for service that stems from the business and family tradition in the hotel industry since 1826. Therefore, we are fully aware of how difficult it can be to set up shop; especially for those who visit Barcelona for the first time. That’s why location makes all the difference in the world. Whether you stay at our hotel on Rambla de Catalunya in Barcelona or at our property on Las Ramblas, comfort and attention are our goal.
