CCIB – Centre de Convencions Internacional de Barcelona #

The CCIB - Centre de Convencions Internacional de Barcelona came into being in 2004 with the 2004 Universal Forum of Cultures. Following the Forum, management of the Convention Centre was subsequently awarded to GL events CCIB SL, a company created specifically for this purpose. The corporate form of the CCIB is therefore that of a Limited Liability Company (LLC), with the following shareholder structure: GL events: 80% Barcelona City Council: 12% Association of Barcelona Hoteliers: 8% GL events, established in Lyon in 1978, is a world leader in the events sector. In 2011, this group operated a global network of 91 event locations, employed a workforce of 3,700 and generated turnover of 783 million euros. The CCIB’s client profile is composed of three main types: Agencies specialised in staging events for other organisations Private companies which organise an event directly Associations active in specific fields of the knowledge sector. At the CCIB we are able to organise events of any type, whether local or international. Given the characteristics of the Convention Centre, however, we offer outstanding capacity for the organisation of large-scale events with a global reach. These also have a positive impact on the city of Barcelona regarding hotel occupation, catering and other services related to the event. In this regard, 83% of our turnover is generated by international events attended by visitors from all over the world. It is also noteworthy that 42% of our clients are from other countries. We would like to offer you a selection of the events organised by the CCIB since it opened for business up to 2011, as well as - with the kind permission of the respective organisers - notable events already confirmed for the future.

Event Overview
Welcome message:

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

It is a great pleasure and privilege to invite you to the 24th European Congress of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases in Barcelona, Spain, 10 – 13 May 2014. The steady growth in importance of ECCMID challenges us to even further increase the excellence of this congress. To achieve this goal the Program Committee has prepared for a series of keynote lectures, symposium, educational workshops and meet-the-expert sessions on parallel tracks, covering the entire field of infectious diseases and clinical microbiology.

Barcelona's International Convention Centre forms part of the new technological and business district known as "22@", one of the city's best developed urban areas, which includes a selection of hotels and communications and transport network that seamlessly connects it to the rest of the city. Modern installations, architectural beauty and seaside location makes Barcelona's International Convention Centre truly unique as one of the largest convention centres in Southern Europe. With a built surface area of 100,000 sqm including the Convention Centre and the Forum Auditorium, the centre can welcome up to 15,000 delegates.

We look forward to seeing you all in Barcelona.
