A city as focused on tourism as Barcelona simply couldn't miss out on an event like this: the International Tourism in Catalonia Show, better known as B-Travel, presents the world's most inspiring tourist destinations. The event represents an excellent opportunity for professionals in the sector to make themselves known and for visitors to get a taste of the very best holiday experiences. Read more
This year the B-Travel show will be held on 21-23 April 2017, between 10 am and 8 pm (except on Sunday, when it will close at 6 pm). If you find yourself in the city during this period and you like travelling as much as we do, we recommend stopping by to take a look. You will surely discover other interesting places for your next trip away. Tickets for B-Travel cost €6 when bought in advance, with special prices for groups.
B-Travel will be held in the Palau de Congressos number 8 at the Montjuïc trade fair complex, where many other big events in the city are staged. This urban exhibition centre is located very close to Plaça Espanya, so in addition to visiting the trade fair you can plan a little expedition that takes in some of Barcelona's key attractions and cultural centres close to Montjuïc. These include the Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya (MNAC), Montjuïc Castle and its Military Museum, the Botanical Garden and the Barcelona Natural Science Museum, the Fundació Miró, the Grec Theatre and the Poble Espanyol.
If you are looking for accommodation for B-Travel near Montjuïc, the most convenient option is to reserve a holiday apartment in Barcelona in advance, so you can enjoy all the services of a hotel, but with the comfort of feeling you are in your own home. If after an exhausting day walking around the trade fair you feel like relaxing in a luxury apartment in Barcelona, we recommend staying in one of the EnjoyBCN Miró Apartments, the EnjoyBCN Fira Apartment or the EnjoyBCN Diagonal Nord Apartment, just 10 minutes from B-Travel.
At all events, getting to B-Travel is very easy, since there are excellent public transport connections (metro, bus and Ferrocarrils Catalans railway). Furthermore, in the Las Arenas shopping centre there is a special parking rate if you show your ticket or invitation to the trade fair.
As in past years, the show is divided into sections corresponding to national and international destinations: B-Adventure (travel related with adventure, nature and sport), B-Culture (for lovers of routes related with art, history and culture), B-Delicious (enogastronomic experiences), B-Happy (wellness plans with family and friends) and B-Special (exclusive travel ideas). This year, there are two new exhibitions at B-Travel 2017: B-Glamping, a space devoted to luxury outdoor camping (teepees, cabins, bungalows, treehouses…); and B-Industrial, a thematic area focused on companies that promote the industrial heritage of each destination.
You can customise your visit by taking advantage of workshops, presentations, new features, exhibitions and competitions, making your time at the show a truly unique experience. What's more, if you are attending as an exhibitor, you will have excellent opportunities for networking, enhanced by the seminars for professionals organised as part of the event itself.

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!
