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.

We truly recommend that flat, everything was there to satisfying us. First the procedure to get the keys and the access are very easy, that's very nice when you don't want somebody to wait for you with the keys if you are late... When we arrived, air conditioning was already running, beds were ready, including baby's one! There was towels for everybody, and the flat was particularly clean!! We felt very good in that place! All the accommodations work well, and there is still one person downstairs ready to help us to enjoy our stay! At our arrival we got a phone number that we can call by whatsApp; in case we need something! That's was good to know! The pool is a bit small but, even while being in the middle of summer we found long slots to enjoy it with nobody! The rooftop terrace is very pleasing and there is table and chair for everybody to take a drink with the wonderful view on Sagrada Familia! We have nothing bad to tell about our stay in those flats! Thank you for all!
How nice is to see that you had such a wonderful stay. You have made our day! We are so happy to see that you liked that much the apartment and our service. We do a great effort everyday and this feedback motivates us a lot to continue doing a great job. It has been a pleasure to host you. We hope to see you soon in Barcelona! Best Regards,

Everything about our stay at the EnjoyBCN apartment was top notch. From the arrival arrangements, to the communications during our stay as needed, to the apartment itself, we were very pleased and impressed with the apartment and the managers. The roof top pool and terrace was a big plus to the stay. It provided us vistas on beautiful Barcelona that we enjoyed tremendously, Our son became ill during our stay, and EnjoyBCN helped us find a competent physician who made a house call and got us to the road to health. The team at Enjoy BCN is first class and caring. We will always be grateful for their kind and excellent service.
How glad we are to see that you had such a great experience and felt well taken care of. Regarding your son, it was the least we could do: getting sick in a country you don't know is awful and it was easy for us to offer some help.
It has been a pleasure to host you. We hope to see you again soon!
