During my trip to EIBTM as a hosted buyer I was invited to a dinner at the Gallery Hotel, Barcelona. This is a 4* hotel located in Barcelona city centre and renovated in 2013.
The hotel has 110 rooms with complimentary internet, in-room tea & coffee and welcome water.
There are 8 meeting rooms which can accommodate up to 200 people.
It has a wonderful rooftop terrace & brand new pool. This would be a fantastic setting for a drinks reception or party!
We had a really enjoyable dinner with great company; as is always the case when mingling with other event professionals (see my previous blog post: Personality Traits of Event Managers). I was still smiling about the announcement that Hull is to be the UK City of Culture 2017, although I was seated next to a tourism professor who had worked on the Swansea Bay bid and so unsurprisingly he did not share my enthusiasm! During the dinner I was asked why I love organising conferences, which inspired my blog post on the subject.
The group also has another property in Malaga, the Hotel Molina Lario. This is a 4* Boutique Hotel located in Malaga’s historic centre with 103 hotel rooms and 6 divisible meeting rooms to accommodate up to 220 people. Mediterranean cuisine is available at El Café de Bolsa, a courtyard and unique rooftop facilities with panoramic views of the city.
Barcelona is a fantastic city and has so much to offer. If you are interested in receiving further details about either of these hotels please contact us.
