Those attending this year’s ibtm world in Barcelona will be able to get to the event in record time with the recent opening of the onsite Metro Station at the Fira Gran Via.
The L9 Metro Line will deliver attendees from the airport in just 19 minutes directly into the Fira Gran Via exhibition centre. Meanwhile, the line will also provide a quick link with one change, directly from the venue to the city, connecting participants to and from their hotels and the airport.
The route will go directly to Terminal 1 at Barcelona International Airport, interconnecting with all other terminals, and trains will run approximately every seven minutes.
Senior exhibition director, ibtm world, Graeme Barnett remarked on the development: “Continually improving our customer’s experience has and will always be a priority. Whether it’s through fast and effective WiFi connectivity in the venue or the journey in and around the city through new transport networks, our aims are to deliver the very best experience possible.”
The Fira Gran Via is additionally readying itself to deliver streamlined connectivity across the show floor throughout ibtm world 2016.
Expansion-sales director, Fira Barcelona, Ruben Dalmau explained: “Fira de Barcelona, as a key partner of ibtm world, plays a significant role in creating the right environment for participants to work effectively at the show. The fact that we host the annual Mobile World Congress means the infrastructure within the halls at Fira Gran Via is equipped with the most advanced installations that deliver up to 10GB to anywhere in the venue along with a state-of-the-art network of wireless antennae integrated into the cable network which provides more than sufficient coverage and technology needs for any type of event.”
Dalmau concluded: “We are always looking to improve the customer experience, not just in terms of connectivity but also catering and other essential services so that attendees and participants at ibtm world can concentrate on doing business in a modern, well equipped and suitable environment.”
