Business tourism trade fair IBTM World will continue to be held at Fira de Barcelona's Gran Via venue until at least 2022. Organiser Reed Exhibitions has signed a three-year renewal agreement with the Barcelona Convention Bureau and the trade fair institution. The renewal of the agreement strengthens the existing relationship between the three organisations going back to 2004, the year in which this important international event was held for the first time in Barcelona. Event director David Thompson stressed, "We are excited to continue our close working relationship with Barcelona over the next three years. The city is a great host for IBTM World and Fira de Barcelona's Gran Via venue provides the perfect facilities for our needs." According to Pere Camprubí, external business director of Fira de Barcelona, "We are very satisfied with the continuity of IBTM World and proud of Fira Barcelona's ability to attract and maintain events of this level, as well as the functionality, design and commitment to sustainability that the Gran Via venue offers. This agreement is great news for the city that strengthens its position as a benchmark in the field of business tourism". The next edition of the event, which already falls within the new agreement, will be held from December 1 to 3, 2020 in Fira Barcelona's Gran Vía venue.
