Any business travel itinerary to Barcelona, Spain, should also take in the stunning architecture, cultural life and the culinary delights of this world-class, hospitable city. Business travellers make up around half of the visitors who visit Barcelona each year and most try to tie-in some of the city's sights. Everyone should mind their belongings as bag-snatching is common.
Barcelona is served by Barcelona Airport, which lies roughly 17 km (11 miles) from the centre of Barcelona. It is the second-largest airport in Spain, and the largest on the Mediterranean coast. It is a main hub for Vueling Airlines, and also a focus for Spanair, Air Europa and Iberia. The new T1 terminal entered service in June 2009. To get to the centre taxis are easiest, and take around 30 minutes.
Business dress in Barcelona is fairly standard and formal and business settings are very important. Business offices tend to open at 9am and often pause for a couple of hours in the afternoon, depending on the business. Meals are leisurely affairs accompanied by good conversation. Don't rush things.
