Turisme de Barcelona and Barcelona’s Provincial Council have merged their respective Convention Bureaus. As a result, the Barcelona Convention Bureau (BCB) and the Barcelona Province Convention Bureau (BPCB) now constitute a single organization aimed at further consolidating Barcelona’s position as a host city for MICE activities.

This way, the new BCB boasts more members, more resources and thus more opportunities for its area of activity, whilst at the same time simplifying relations with clients and organisers through a single interlocutor.

“The merger of the two bureaus is a major achievement that will further boost Barcelona’s position as one of the world’s leading MICE tourism destinations”, states Christoph Tessman, BCB’s Managing Director. Following the merger, the 18 members of the BPCP will become part of the BCB and Barcelona Provincial Council will become a fully-fledged member of the technical team and committee.
