Centro Convenciones Gran Via
The avant-garde building, the work of the Japanese architect 2013 Pritzker Prize, Toyo Ito, is the largest convention center in Barcelona in terms of the number of conference rooms (around 70) and in terms of exhibition space (24,500 m2). All this in only two floors and strategically located between the city center and the airport. It also has the largest infrastructure wired and wi-fi (20Gbps), awarded by the World Broadband Alliance with the award for the most innovative network. The CCGV is surrounded by the most sophisticated hotel offer in Barcelona and is perfectly communicated by public transport, just four stops from the center (L9 Fira).
The venue is integrated into the Gran Via site, which has 5,000 parking spaces and two heliport areas. The design of the site is highly committed to the environment. Several natural energy sources have been used in order to maximize sustainability and reduce environmental impact. As the maximum exponent of this trend, the site has one of the largest photovoltaic plants at the state level (165,000m2), which prevents an annual emission of 2,047 tons of CO2 and generates enough energy for 980 homes of 4 people.
