World Trade Center
A major business complex surrounded by the sea
A business park in the form of a ship bathed by the Mediterranean Sea in the Port of Barcelona. World Trade Center Barcelona (WTCB) consists of four buildings with office space, congress centres, a large central plaza and even a 5 star hotel with 291 rooms.
Why visit the World Trade Center?
World Trade Center Barcelona (WTCB) is a business park that was opened in the Port of Barcelona in 1999. Designed by the architect Henry N. Cobb, the building is inspired by the form of a vessel surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea. The park is structured around four constructions arranged in a circle, in the middle of which there is a central plaza that is home to a shopping area and restaurants.
One of the main characteristics of the complex is the flexibility of its spaces, allowing companies to rent offices in various sizes on one or more floors and to hold meetings for as many as 1,500 people. WTCB is constantly holding events such as international conventions, scientific gatherings and presentations of new products and businesses.
