Getting to the conference

Private Vehicle

If you are driving to the CCIB from the city centre, the best way to cross the city is by driving down Avenida Diagonal to the end of this avenue. The most direct way to reach the CCIB from the airport or from outside the city is by using the Ronda Litoral (the city’s coastal ringroad) and taking Salida (exit) 24.

From and to the Airport

El Prat airport is 13 km southeast of Barcelona and 20 km from the CCIB.
The main road artery C-31 connects the airport directly with Barcelona. To enter the city, take either of the avenues Gran Via or Avenida Diagonal – these offer the most direct road access to the city centre.
Alternatively take either of the two ringroads, the Ronda de Dalt (upper) or Ronda Litoral (coastal), which circle the city.


The trip by taxi takes approximately 20 minutes. Fares change according to the time of day (officially established fare timetable).
Taxis can be reserved via these two websites: BarnaTaxi and Radiotaxibarcelona


Metro station Urquinaona is around 200 m from Plaza Cataluña and is on Metro line L4 (yellow)
This line takes you directly to the Maresme-Fòrum Metro station.


You can also reach the CCIB by bus, using the lines 7 or 41, and by tram, alighting at the Fòrum tram stop.

Airport Bus

The bus shuttle service between the airport and Barcelona city centre (Plaza Cataluña) runs from 06.00 a.m. to 01.00 a.m. (airport > Barcelona) and from 05:30 to 00:15 (Barcelona > airport) every day.
Buses leave every 10-12 minutes and the trip takes around 30 minutes.g
