City & Travel Information

Barcelona

Barcelona is not only the capital of Catalonia but also the capital of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. With 8 listed historical monuments, Barcelona holds the world record.

Also Barcelona is famous for its beautiful old town and “La Rambla”, the well-known boulevard which guides its visitors from the city center to the beach. Countless cultural, historical and culinary highlights make this city so special and worth visiting at least once in a lifetime.

In 2018 this impressive city will once again give our meeting an appropriate framework to welcome physicians and key-opinion leaders from all five continents to the leading conference on Neuromodulators, Fillers, Cosmeceuticals, Emerging Technologies, and Energy-based Devices.
 

Flying to Barcelona

The airport Barcelona-El Prat (BCN) is the second largest airport in Spain and belongs to the top 10 in Europe meaning that national and international flights arrive in Barcelona El-Prat frequently. With a distance of about 15 km to Barcelona City it is very centrally located. Alternatively, there are several smaller airports in the region, such as Girona (90 km) and Reus (90 km), which are mainly frequented by low cost airlines.
