Once again, Barcelona will become the European capital of cardiology. On 26-30 August 2017, the Gran Vía site of Fira de Barcelona will host the European Society of Cardiology Congress. This congress is held in a different European country every year, although this is not the first time that Barcelona has been chosen to stage the event. Fira de Barcelona also hosted this prestigious medical congress in 1992, 1999, 2009 and 2014. Read more
The European Society of Cardiology Congress is one of the most important scientific events, which brings together specialists from some 140 different countries every year. The 2016 Congress, held in Rome, attracted over 30,000 experts, and more than 11,000 scientific studies were presented during the event.
Although some 150 different cardiovascular topics will be addressed, this year's Congress will focus on Percutaneous Coronary Interventions – PCI, with 500 scientific sessions led by experts. These sessions will concentrate on the areas considered to be of greatest importance: diagnosis, treatment of cardiovascular disease and scientific research.
As mentioned earlier, this year's European Society of Cardiology Congress will take place at the Gran Vía site of Fira de Barcelona. This is one of the largest trade fair complexes in Europe and it was designed by the Japanese architect Toyo Ito, winner of the 2013 Pritzker Prize. This venue is located in Hospitalet de Llobregat, very close to Barcelona, with excellent transport connections. The European Society of Cardiology Congress at the Gran Vía exhibition centre is very easy to reach by public transport, taxi or private vehicle. From Barcelona, you can take the metro (line L9), train (Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat de Catalunya - FGC) or bus (lines H12, 79, 46 and 65).
If you are going to attend the 2017 European Society of Cardiology Congress, we would recommend reserving in advance. Not only should account be taken of more than 30,000 specialists visiting Barcelona, but this is also one of the times of year when a great many tourists come to the city.

Gorgeous apartment! Our stay was absolutely lovely. The space is stylish and clean with an amazing view overlooking the city. It’s also central to many restaurants/cafes and easy access to further neighborhoods and tourist attractions. The space fit our group of 10 very comfortably with three nice large bathrooms and comfortable beds. The common area is bright and welcoming with a kitchen conducive for gathering and entertaining. As is the beautiful rooftop terrace + pool! We would absolutely stay there again.
We are so glad to see that you had a great stay at the apartment and liked it that much. It is also so nice to see that you enjoyed our rooftop terrace. Thank you for this fantastic comment. It has been a pleasure to host you. We hope to see you again soon.

We had a fantastic extended weekend in the apartment and it was absolutely perfect - we were 8 people of which a little boy of 1.5 years and there was highchair and baby cot put up perfectly! Nice location close to town and beach. We definitely rent here again - thank you for a lovely stay!
We are so glad to see that you had a great stay at the apartment and felt well taken care of. It is also so nice to know that as a family with a baby you got your needs covered. It has been a pleasure to host you. We hope to see you soon in Barcelona!

This apartment was the perfect place for our group of 4 couples. Each of us had appropriate privacy and our own bathrooms. Everything was clean and updated, just as expected. The space was quite spacious, even for 8 people. We enjoyed the multiple seating areas in the living room. And as you can tell by the photos, it is decorated nicely and stylish. The creative indoor patio was unique and we enjoyed the fun swing! The views were great as well! We loved the location! It seemed almost everywhere we went it was only a 15-20 minute walk- Barre Gotic, La Ramblas, the Boqueria, and Arc de Triomf. It is also close to public transportation and taxi stands. We found good restaurant selections within this area. There is a nice coffee shop two doors down and a small Market two doors down in the other direction. The only negative was there was work going on in an adjacent apartment, so during the day, we heard almost constant jackhammer noise! This, of course, can happen anytime if you are choosing multi family dwellings and certainly not controllable by the rental company, however it certainly was annoying. Enjoy BCN (the rental company), was fantastic in helping us with our trip, offering thoughtful suggestions whenever we needed it. And their response time was amazing. We would definitely choose this apartment again when in Barcelona!
Thank you for this wonderful and detailed comment! We are so happy to see that you liked that much the apartment and felt well taken care of. We also wanted say thanks from all the team for the complete email you sent us with suggestions and tips to improve our service. We considered it so useful and constructive and we wanted to take the chance to express you our gratitude again. It has been a pleasure to host you. We hope to see you soon again in Barcelona!
