12 charming event venues in Barcelona for corporate events

If the selection of an event venue in Barcelona or any other place is a very difficult challenge in itself, going a step further and look for the most exclusive spaces and the most original theming so that a corporate event is different for the rest is even more effortful.

An original and different place for events must have some essential requirements to cover the needs of each company, but it must also have a story to tell and a special connection with the participants, to positively impact their perception.

Hiring an event planner agency that is in charge of the organization is a good option, since not only will they have the best contacts to access the most unusual places, but they will know every inch of your possibilities and will be in constant innovation to offer the best themes and suppliers.

In Empirance Events we have made a selection of 12 of the event venues in Barcelona that our clients like the most for their great uniqueness.

Palau de la Música Catalana

The concert hall of the Palau de la Música, one of the exponent buildings of modernism, is known for being one of the most unique in the world, being a dream space conceived as an immense crystal box crowned with a large central window that it looks like something out of a fairy tale.

That is why many companies choose this place for all kinds of events, especially product launches or any event that includes a concert or a catwalk, since it allows any theming. The work of Lluís Domènech y Montaner also has different rooms ideal for holding meetings, presentations, business lunches and dinners, round tables, conferences, exhibitions, conventions, symposiums, etc.

The Palau de la Música Catalana offers an open-air space called the Palace Square, where you can enjoy a delicious lunch or dinner company or a cocktail party if the weather is good.

Palau Nacional de Montjuïc

There are few places in Barcelona that have a combination of spaces as wide and versatile as this palace located in Plaça Espanya. Built for the 1929 Expo, it has hosted private events that include everything from big acts in its gardens to concerts for companies of famous singers. Hosting the National Art Museum of Catalonia (MNAC), this place has great importance as a center for dialogue and artistic debate, including, among others, the best collection of Romanesque mural art in the world.

Companies love this place to organize conferences, presentations, exhibitions, gala dinners and any customized event.

The MNAC has an outdoor terrace, ideal for a weekend party while enjoying magnificent views of the city of Barcelona and the light, sound and color show of the fountains of Montjuïc.

Esfèric Barcelona

For companies that opt for bold design in venues, in the heart of Montjuïc we can find this spectacular space that leaves many people speechless. Its architecture, its history and its avant-garde construction are integrated perfectly into the Mediterranean-inspired gardens of Joan Brossa.

The rooms have all kinds of facilities to assemble and connect audiovisual material, ideal for conferences, product presentations, exhibitions, conventions and more. Esfèric has on its main floor a terrace with privileged views of Barcelona where the most exclusive business events are organized in summer.

La Casa de Llotja de Mar

This building, built during the most splendid period of Catalan Gothic, is representative of the economy and culture of the city since medieval times, as it was a place where the merchants of the city met and was destined for trading, and it was the scene of great cultural occasions such as Barcelona’s first opera or poetry competitions such as the Jocs Florals.

Located in front of the sea, a few minutes from the Port of Barcelona and the historical center of the city, with interesting spaces and monuments such as the Cathedral, the Ramblas, etc., it allows to host the most exquisite company events in its wide variety of rooms, such as presentations, breakfasts and gala dinners, conferences, advertising spots, parades, concerts, receptions, press conferences and more.

Casa Rocamora

For exclusive corporate events in petit comité few more ideal places exist in Barcelona than some of their private houses with a patrimonial content of singular historical and artistic importance, whose history can still be explained by the people who lived in them.

Among them are the famous Casa de les Punxes, the Casa Amatller, but also a relatively unknown building that seduces a large number of individuals and companies that have held many acts of great social interest there: Casa Rocamora, a 19th-century Elizabethan palace in the Putxet neighborhood in Barcelona. It has a spectacular garden, with tall palm trees and a central pond ideal for business lunches and dinners during the months of spring, summer and autumn.

Torre Bellesguard

The heritage of Antoni Gaudí goes far beyond the Park Güell, the Pedrera, the Casa Batlló or the Sagrada Familia. The Bellesguard Tower is a totally virgin and surprising building, halfway between modernism and Gothic. Located in the upper area of Barcelona, surrounded by spectacular gardens that allow outdoor corporate events, it delights companies that want their guests to hold an event in their memory. Its spaces are ideal for a business lunch or dinner, a product presentation, a work meeting or a thematic event in an environment of absolute privacy, away from the hustle and bustle of the city center.

Hotel Mandarin Oriental

In Barcelona there are countless fantastic and exclusive luxury hotels to organize corporate events, such as Hotel Alma, Hotel Casa Fuster, Hotel Omm or Hotel ABaC (where the restaurant run by chef Jordi Cruz is located). However, the Mandarin Oriental Hotel is one of our favorites to organize business meetings and conferences as it is located in a privileged environment in the middle of Paseo de Gracia, the most exclusive area of Barcelona.

The hotel offers spaces with live music, different rooms for private events, which are equipped with the most advanced audiovisual systems and connections. To ensure that events go as planned, an experienced meeting coordinator is assigned to all clients. In addition, they offer the option of providing a computer and iPads.

The terrace of the Mandarin Oriental Hotel is known for being one of the most exclusive in the city. It offers spectacular views of Barcelona and an infinity pool from which you can contemplate the horizon. Many MICE events choose to stay at the hotel to enjoy these and other equipment and services.

Camp Nou

There are few clubs in the world that arouse as many passions and complicities as the Barcelona Football Club. Many companies know this and take advantage of networking opportunities offered by this theme by organizing their events at the Camp Nou, especially meetings and team building activities or large-scale events such as conventions, congresses, product presentations or presentations. For this reason, the space offers a wide range of rooms and versatile spaces, unique and with a sophisticated style, equipped with the latest technology and with a capacity of 450 people.

The Club offers some exclusive incentives for companies such as the Corporate Tour ‘Excellence’, which allows attendees to visit the most emblematic corners of the Camp Nou, such as the museum (the most visited in Catalonia) with the accompaniment of an official guide, or the Corporate Tour ‘Top Experience’ that in addition to the above includes access to restricted areas for the general public, group photography next to the lawn, glass of champagne in one of the VIP areas of the Stadium and other surprises.

Caves Codorniu

The Caves Codorniu are in one of the most emblematic Catalan modernist buildings, with qualification of National Historic-Artistic Monument, for whose construction the family hired the architect Josep Puig i Cadafalch (contemporary of Gaudí). “Stone homage to the silence of the cava” according to Codorniu, constitutes a labyrinth of underground cellars that delights sparkling tasting lovers.

Companies choose this space to offer a thematic incentive to attendees of their events, as it has different intimate and welcoming spaces, and equipment for conferences, presentations, business meetings, team building activities and much more.

Las Cavas Codorniu offers a wide variety of incentives such as recreational visits to the facilities, gastronomic activities such as wine and cava tastings, pairing with cheeses and chocolates and much more.

Casa de les Punxes

Declared Historical Monument of National Interest in 1976 and built by Josep Puig i Cadafalch at the request of the Terrades family of the textile industry, the Casa de les Punxes is currently one of the most emblematic modernist buildings of the Catalan capital, which has an intimate relationship with the legend of Sant Jordi, patron saint of Catalonia. It is one of the most appreciated event venues in Barcelona among companies that need versatile spaces -some of them interconnected- ideal for business meetings, presentations, team building activities, among others.

Masia Casa del Mar

For those who prefer a quieter environment, away from the city, without renouncing the cultural, architectural and landscape connection with Barcelona and Catalonia, there are endless possibilities for places for corporate events. An example of them are the many masies (rural constructions whose origins go back to the Roman villas, and that date even before the tenth century). One of them is the Masia Casa del Mar, an exclusive estate facing the sea, with spectacular views, and just over half an hour from the Garraf natural park in Barcelona. It has a large and cozy meeting room, with a capacity of up to 50 people, ideal for exclusive events of small format, and with spectacular spaces for dinners, product presentations and other activities.

Observatori Fabra

A company that wants to combine the agenda of its event with scientific divulgation and a gastronomic proposal, will find in the Observatory Fabra an incomparable environment. In this building, which has a museum, a modernist room, a large dome and one of the largest and oldest telescopes in Europe still in operation, outdoor events are held in one of the most privileged viewpoints of the city. It is ideal for conferences, private events such as work meetings, presentations and seminars. Its wide variety of indoor and outdoor spaces can accommodate 200 people.

Make your company stand out

Luxury corporate events, whether business meetings, conferences, congresses, product or brand presentations, MICE, lectures, symposiums, etc., help companies to promote their reputation, motivate their employees, foster camaraderie with original and different experiences. And the success of an event depends, to a great extent, on the choice of an ideal space with an adequate theming and suitable incentives.
