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.

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!

I really liked the apartment, my family is delighted! Only positive emotions: clean, fresh, quiet, comfortable! The kitchen is great! The cleaning lady is also a great fellow, she quickly cleaned everything up and changed all the clothes. Convenient location in the city, near the market, subway and a lot of interesting things! Next year we will definitely stay in this apartment! Sincerely, Gennady!
Thank you for this wonderful feedback! The fact that you have only positive things to say about your stay make us very happy. Thank you also for the comment about our cleaning staff: they will be delighted to see this review.
It has been a pleasure to host you. We hope to see you soon in Barcelona!

This was the best stay of our vacation. I contacted Enjoybcn last minute after being stuck with a single bed hotel room for my family of 4. They responded quickly and kept my vacation going without a hitch. I don’t know when I’ll be back to Barcelona but I know I’ll call them when I do and I will be recommending it to all my Barcelona bound friends. It was also in a great part of town and if you stay have some Cava on the rooftop for a different look at the city.
How glad we are to see that you had such a comfortable stay in our apartment so you could fully enjoy your vacation. It is also fantastic to know that you enjoyed our rooftop terrace to relax after and exhausting day of sightseeing (and even with cava, well done!) It has been a pleasure to host you. We hope to see you soon in Barcelona!

If you want to be close to La Sagrada Familia, this is the place to stay. This modernized apartment is just a few steps away from LSF with a host of good restaurants right outside your door. The metro is also very close for easy access to the entire city. Very nice roof top deck that overlooks LSF and the City. The staff from Enjoy BCN (property managers) could not have been more attentive and hospitable. One day the power and water went off for most of the block in our neighbourhood. The staff from Enjoy BCN quickly came to the property to make sure all guests were looked after and stayed there all day which was most appreciated. Thank you Enjoy BCN for making our stay so memorable. We recommend this apartment and would definitely stay here again if we return to Barcelona.
We are so happy to see that you had such a great experience at our apartment. Regarding the power and water outage, it was the least we could do! What we couldn't allow is that, after an exhausting day exploring the city, you couldn't have access to a shower. Thank you so much for this fantastic review. Sometimes we have to do a great effort to make you feel comfortable but this wonderful feedback really compensates it.
We hope to see all the family back soon!
