Barcelona is Open for Business
Barcelona attracts many visitors from around the world for world class beaches, shopping, architecture, culture and sunshine. However, in recent years, the city has made a name for itself as a great destination for business trips and incentive travel, being centrally located in Europe and only a short flight from the UK as well as many other international destinations.
Last Sunday, Fran, the European Operations Manager and Paul, our Director, travelled to Barcelona for 3 days to visit the city. The trip was a chance to discover the best hotels, unique dining locations and specialist attractions for our customers and develop strong working relationships.
Fran and Paul’s particular focus was to develop links with 4* Superior and 5* hotels for incentive groups, business groups and high end clients in exciting locations around Barcelona.
They enjoyed an exclusive walking tour around the historic Barrio Gotico and Born regions and learnt about lesser known sights and those only small groups would be able to see.
They also scouted out exclusive dining options, from historic marisquería seafood restaurants, asador restaurants featuring homely cooking, to vintage bodegas in the Born or modern waterside restauarnts down in Port Vell. What’s more, they had a hard time trying all the jamón, pan con tomat and Rioja on offer to make sure the food and drink were up to standard!
With efficient transport systems and much to see and do, it is easy to see why it regularly tops lists of best places in the world for incentive trips.
