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.

An address to know when visiting Barcelona; What a pleasure after a day of discovery to return to this remain of peace that adjoins the Sagrada Familia where you feel at home. The area is lively but the apartment is very quiet, well equipped (value for money unbeatable in Barcelona) Many shops, transport nearby ... Pure happiness!

PHENOMENAL apartment. It's absolutely massive, plenty of room for people to hang out collectively in one space, or spread out. Rooms are comfortable, all windows have blackout shades you can pull closed (helped a lot with jetlag). Beds are comfortable, baths and showers are lovely. There's plenty of ensuites to help keep people happy. We were a group of 9 adults and thought it was perfect. Also SUPER walkable to nearly everything you could want/need. Wish we had the opportunity to stay longer.

The property was exactly as advertised. We had quiet nights as the bedrooms were away from the street and separated from the kitchen/living room. The property was very clean and due to our extended stay the additional cleaning service was very appreciated. This location is perfect for those who enjoy walking as many sights were within walking distance. An excellent coffee shop was around the corner and an impressive grocery store was down the street. Our family (including young children) had a fine time. Our only regret is that we could not stay longer.
Dear Mrs. Broderick,
We are so happy to see that you had a great stay at the apartment and felt well taken care of. The truth is that it is a little bit complicated to find a more central apartment!
It is so nice to know that you both and the children enjoyed the space. It has been a pleasure to host you. We hope to see you soon in Barcelona!

Gorgeous apartment! Our stay was absolutely lovely. The space is stylish and clean with an amazing view overlooking the city. It’s also central to many restaurants/cafes and easy access to further neighborhoods and tourist attractions. The space fit our group of 10 very comfortably with three nice large bathrooms and comfortable beds. The common area is bright and welcoming with a kitchen conducive for gathering and entertaining. As is the beautiful rooftop terrace + pool! We would absolutely stay there again.
We are so glad to see that you had a great stay at the apartment and liked it that much. It is also so nice to see that you enjoyed our rooftop terrace. Thank you for this fantastic comment. It has been a pleasure to host you. We hope to see you again soon.
