It is one of the largest and most modern fair venues in Europe. It is characterised by its design, functionality and commitment to sustainability, hosting one of the largest rooftop photovoltaic plants.
It has eight halls, connected by a walkway that channels visitors, with some of the most advanced technical and logistical features.
It is planned to extend it by 2024 with the construction of a new 60,000 sqm two-storey building, in addition to another one for offices and services, to be linked up to the rest of the complex by means of a footbridge, giving continuity to the walkway that connects all the pavilions.
The Gran Via venue contains several spaces for congress activity spread around the different halls. One of them is the Convention Centre, located in Hall 8, a fully modular and versatile space with seating for between 3,000 and 12,000 people.
The venue, designed by Pritzker Architecture Prize winner Toyo Ito, is located between Barcelona and L’Hospitalet del Llobregat in a new business development area, very close to the airport and connected to the public transport network.
