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:

The European Society of Intensive Care Medicine is delighted to welcome you to LIVES 2014, the 27th Annual Congress of the Society, which will be held on September 27 - October 1, 2014.

More than ever, ESICM is a society at the cutting edge of scientific research. Our slogan, “The Intensive Connection” symbolises our commitment to connect our members with research, education, industry and one another—across the globe. We know that the more we connect the field, the stronger we will be. LIVES 2014 will deliver on this objective by updating clinicians, nursing staff, and allied health professionals on the most recent and relevant advances pertaining to critical care and emergency medicine and by offering a host of new opportunities for all involved to make those important connections.

This Congress will be one of the major intensive care meetings in 2014 with planned parallel sessions including over 500 lectures, presentations, debates, round table discussions, tutorials and interactive educational sessions. A top-ranked faculty of invited speakers who are all well-known international experts in their field will participate by presenting and chairing sessions.

We look forward to welcoming you to LIVES 2014 in Barcelona, Spain, for a congress which will offer both an exciting and educational scientific programme, alongside an undoubtedly entertaining social and cultural activity agenda.

Jean-Daniel Chiche, ESICM President
Jozef Kesecioglu, Chairman of the ESICM Congress Committee
