TESTIMONIALS
“Whenever I have proposed Barcelona as a venue to organize a conference or professional meeting, the response from my professional colleagues has always been very positive. In their own words, Barcelona is a captivating, cosmopolitan city, with history and culture, perfect weather, good food and good professionals that guarantee a memorable stay in the city. If we add to all this to a top-class, medical-scientific meeting, then the combination is "the perfect conference".”

“Barcelona is a very "complete city" with a pleasant climate, history, art, culture, it's easy to get to, and with good public transport ... and what's more, welcoming. When I returned to Barcelona in 2002, after 11 years in the United States and 13 years in Italy, I asked myself how could I have lived away for so long!”
