IoT Congress is an event that focuses on innovation and digital transformation. It brings together IoT experts (Internet of Things) to explore how to make the most of the advantages this technology offers in the business world.
The third IoT World Congress Barcelona will be held from 16 to 18 October at Fira Barcelona. An Internet of Things fair that brings together 300 exhibitors at the largest fairgrounds in Barcelona.
The aim of the IoT Congress is to position the Internet of Things as a disruptive technology that helps change the way companies and industries work. Last year, more than 14,000 professionals from the IoT sector attended IoT Congress Barcelona 2017 and there were over 300 exhibitors and sponsors.
The IoT Congress is geared towards professionals with ties to IoT technology. The congress aims to bring together top experts in IoT to delve deeper into the most important issues of this technology today.
This year, the theme for the fair in Barcelona is “The Leading IoT Industry Event” and analysts, influencers and technologicalsolutions experts will meet to debate the future of the IoTindustry with more than 300 top-notch speakers.
IoT Congress Barcelona is prepared to welcome all companies that, by implementing disruptive technology, aim to transform how they do business.
Leading companies from a variety of sectors have attended other years, including those from sectors like energy (BP, Repsol, Gas Natural Fenosa), manufacturing (Canon, Bosh), transport and logistics (such as BMW and Volkswagen), healthcare (Philips Healthcare), research and development (Boston University) and software (Nokia, Toshiba, LG), as well as Inditex and Amazon, among others.
IoT Congress Barcelona will be held from 16 to 18 October at Fira Barcelona, one of the largest fairgrounds in Europe where more than 120 fairs, congresses and events are held each year, bringing together over 30,000 companies and 2 million visitors from Spain and abroad. One of the most famous events held each year at Fira Barcelona is the Mobile World Congress, organised by Mobile World Capital®.
Among the exhibitors at IoT Congress Barcelona, you’ll find the most important technology companies in the Internet of Things industry at Fira Barcelona with the following profiles:
The 2018 Internet of Things Congress Barcelona has eight main tracks: manufacturing, energy & utilities, connected transport, healthcare, buildings & infrastructure, open industry and enabling IoT. Plus, new this year, the IoT Congress has added two additional tracks: Blockchain Solutions World and AI & Cognitive Systems.
The event features an extensive programme of conferences. However, what you need to know to make the most of it is that they are aligned to delve deeper into the use of disruptive technology to facilitate automation processes; the importance of data for decision-making and improving operations; smart infrastructures; the work methods of the future, based on ultra-connected employees; and, finally, boosting productivity while decreasing IT spending.
Plus, this year the IoT Congress has added two disruptive technology forums: Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain, where participants will debate data analytics and cognitive computation, among other topics.
To attend the IoT Congress Barcelona, held at the Fira Barcelona Gran Vía fairgrounds, the address is:
Av. Joan Carles I, 64
It is easy to get there using various modes of transport, given the importance of the complex in the city and the size of the events held there each year. We recommend taking public transport (metro) or a taxi, or hiring a private transfer so you don’t have to worry about anything.
The Barcelona metro system connects most of the city. Fira Barcelona has its own station, from which it is very easy to enter or leave the grounds.
TMB L9 Sud ("Fira" and "Europa/Fira" stations)
There are more than 10,500 taxis in Barcelona and its metropolitan area, which are black and yellow. Around the city, you will also find various taxi ranks and the Fira Barcelona facilities all have taxi ranks available.
When a taxi is free, the green light on top of the car is lit up. All taxis are metered and accept payment by card.
If you’re attending IoT Congress, you can also make your way there by Barcelona public bus. The fastest option, however, is the metro or a taxi.
TMB lines H12 and 79
If you prefer to get around on your own (public transport and taxis tend to be in high demand during this type of event and may not be available at peak hours), EnjoyBCN offers you the option to make the most of the advantages and comforts of our transfer services in Barcelona.
We’re here to take you anywhere you need to go, from the time you arrive in Barcelona throughout your stay: airport transfer to the apartment, to the fairgrounds from anywhere in Barcelona, etc. Count on us, we’re here for you.

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!
