World Trade Center Barcelona

World Trade Center Barcelona is a business park located in Barcelona, opened on 22 July 1999. This business centre is located on the waterfront close to the city centre, and has 40,000 m2 of rented office and a conference centre, conventions and meeting spaces with 20 different rooms.

WTCB building structure was inspired by the shape of a boat surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea, and created by American architect Henry N. Cobb. The arrangement of the four buildings in a circle creates a central plaza of 2,500 m2, where shops and restaurants provide services to the users of the complex. The four towers house offices for rent, a congress centre and the Hotel Grand Marina.

Complex design allows to rent offices from 40 to 3,000 m2 in a single plant. The flexibility of space is also a feature of the convention centre, offering the possibility of organising meetings of 8 to large events with up to 1,500 attendees.
