IBTM World 2018 is held at the Fira de Barcelona in the Gran Vía venue, whose address is:Joan Carles Ave. I, 64
Due to the importance of the Fira Gran Vía, access is easy from different types of transport. We recommend going by public transport (metro) or taxi, or by private transfer so you don't have to worry about anything.
Barcelona's metro connects a large part of the city. The Fira de Barcelona has its own metro station from which it is very easy to get in and out of the venue.
L9 South of TMB ('Fira' and 'Europa/Fira' stations).
In Barcelona is easy to get a taxi because they are 11,500 approximately. There are very recognizable because they are yellow and black. Also, you will have identified the taxi stops easily. On the other hand, on the street and the Fira Barcelona venues also have fully equipped taxi ranks.
Note that all taxis have a taximeter and offer the possibility of payment by card, which can be an advantage if you don’t have cash money.
You can attend to IBTM World congress by bus. However, the quickest and most recommended way is by subway, EnjoyBCN transfer service or taxi.
TMB H12 and 79 lines.
If you prefer to always travel by yourself (public transport and taxi services are often in high demand during these fairs and are not even available at peak times), with EnjoyBCN you have the possibility to set-up private transfer service in the city.
Whenever you need it and on any journey since your arrival in Barcelona and during your stay: airport transfer, arrival at the apartment, transfers to the fair from any point in Barcelona, etc. Our team is at your disposal.
Barcelona is a contemporary city that offers a large number of hotels, hostels and tourist apartments that adapt to different needs and budgets.

In this area, you will find the access to the lines: L3 - Green Line/L4 Yellow Line/ L2 Purple Line/ L1 - Red Line). This area offers a lot of entertainment options with restaurants and nightclubs.

This was the best Airbnb we've ever stayed in around the world and we have visited many over the last few years. The location can't be beat. The management company was responsive, helpful and super thoughtful. We had small treats waiting for us and our kids upon arrival and other nice touches during our stay. We have recommended this location and company to all others who visit Barcelona.
Wow, what a great review, thank you very much! We are so happy to see that you had such a great stay and felt well taken care of. It is also so great to see that your children liked our little treats. We thought they may like it. It has been a pleasure to host you. We'd love to see you and all the family again soon!

We enjoyed our stay in this apartment. It's located in an excellent neighborhood outside of the city core, but there were plenty of shops and restaurants around, and we appreciated the quiet respite from the tourists and traffic of downtown. It's very close to two key metro stations and bus lines and we had no issues getting around town (and got to use Barcelona's stellar metro). The space was excellent with quiet rooms and an excellent terrace. Our host was spectacular and very generous.
We are so happy to see that you had such a great stay at the apartment and felt well taken care of. As you say, with the metro it is so easy to go everywhere in only a few minutes and the great advantage of being outside the city center is that is completely calm. It has been a pleasure to host you. We would love to see you again soon!

I could probably write a 10 page positive review for this apartment and the amazing folks at Enjoy BCN, but I will keep it simple. 7 members of my family, including 3 kids ages 4-11, stayed the apartments over my kid's Spring Break. The apartment is perfectly situated in the heart of the Gothic Quarter. There is a grocery story right next store and dozens of amazing restaurants within walking distance. The apartment could not have been in a better location. It is in the heart of everything. The staff at Enjoy BCN is incredible as well! They were very responsive to our emails, helped arrange transportation to and from the airport (my kids loved that there was someone waiting at the airport with our name on a sign), and they even helped us get tickets to the sold out FC Barcelona game. I've stayed in many places around the world and the staff at Enjoy BCN may be the kindest and most helpful that I've encountered. I cannot recommend this place highly enough!
Wow, what a wonderful review! We are so happy to see that you had such a great experience and felt this well taken care of. We do a great effort everyday to make you feel like at home and this fantastic review means a lot to us.
It has been a pleasure to host your family. We would love to see you again soon in our beautiful city!

We loved staying at this apartment in Barcelona! It was very clean and beautifully furnished! We were concerned about having to pick up the key late at night when we arrived, but fortunately we were able to divide up our group at the airport and send my sisters to pick up the key while we collected our luggage, then we all met back at the apartment. There is a beautiful view out the deck and from the back bedrooms. The location was nice, quiet area but quick walk to the main areas. Two of our trip highlights were the personalized welcome gifts for our 3 boys when we arrived in the apartment, and then the EnjoyBCN crew when we stored our luggage at their office the last day before flying out. They were beyond helpful and delightful!!!! The city views from the EnjoyBCN office were incredible!!!! We enjoyed our stay very much!!! We would definitely stay in this apartment again, and I have already recommended the EnjoyBCN team to friends that are visiting Barcelona this Summer! Thank you all!!!
Thank you for this wonderful and detailed feedback! We are so happy to see that your stay went smooth and you felt well taken care of. It is so great to see that your boys liked our little gifts!
As fot the office, how glad we are that you came! As we are in a 19th floor in the middle of the city, the views are truly spectacular, you are right!
It has been a pleasure to host you. We hope to see you soon in Barcelona!
