The range of tourist attractions in Barcelona for those who travel for cultural and leisure purposes are not the only available options for visitors. Over the last few years there has been a significant rise in the amount of business meetings, congresses and conventions held in Barcelona, luring in thousands of visitors all of whom are in search of a different type of trip from those who travel solely for leisure purposes. Their aim is to work, develop professionally and enjoy commercial exchanges. Business tourism nowadays in Barcelona is an ever-growing phenomenon.

Barcelona has become one of the five top cities for business tourism, creating a challenge for the tourist sector. A need has been created for top of the range hotels which are situated near venues where conventions and congresses are held.

The chain of HCC hotels meets the needs of business tourists without question due to the services offered to their guests as well as their ideal location. Many visitors to Barcelona for business purposes wish to arrive at the event venue as soon as possible and with this in mind HCC offer two hotels, HCC Lugano and HCC Open,  which can be found within eight and fifteen minutes walk respectively from the FIRA in Barcelona. The FIRA is a venue that holds the most important congresses and attracts thousands of visitors annually, therefore people travelling on business are usually grateful to be able to stay somewhere which is only a short walk away.

It is important to bear in mind that people who travel to Barcelona for business purposes are also interested in discovering the city. By staying in a hotel that is located centrally, all of the major tourist attractions are on your doorstep. HCC hotels make it possible for visitors to get around the city easily and staff at the hotel are always on hand with all the necessary information for those who wish to discover the delights of Barcelona.

Similarly, HCC hotels in Barcelona also offer a meeting room in order for professionals to make the most of their time in the city.

The growing success of Barcelona as a destination for people travelling for business purposes clearly poses a threat to other leading cities such as Paris or Vienna. In 2014, almost 2,000 conferences took place in Barcelona for a variety of fields, such as technology, medicine and science, which attracted people from all over the world and projected a positive image of Barcelona on an international level.

Despite the fact that leisure tourism draws in thousands of people every year to Barcelona, it is important to note the significance of the rise in business tourism and the positive outcomes it has for the city.
