Do you provide shuttles between Fira Gran Via and local hotels?

Official Hotel Shuttle buses are provided free-of-charge for attendees who have booked hotels through our official accommodation provider, b network, and where public transport is not available. Many, many hotels are conveniently accessed by the Barcelona Metro and FGC trains.

How do I get an international visa invitation letter?

If you require an invitation letter to enter Spain, you’ll have the option to request one while you are registering for the event.

Should I wait to book hotel and airline reservations in case prices come down?

We recommend booking hotel and flights sooner rather than later. With airlines, you’ll find the best flight options and more seat availability the earlier you book. With hotel rooms, the sooner you book the better the location you’ll secure. We strongly recommend you book your travel using our official travel partner, b network. Not only are they very familiar with our event, they’re trusted partners who will ensure a seamless, guaranteed experience.

Not yet sure of your exact plans or when to arrive? Most attendees arrive into Barcelona the weekend before the show, in order to pick up their badge and familiarise themselves with the venue and transport routes before the event begins.
