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 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!
