Catalonia: a destination thriving with active lifestyle and engaging meetings

Thanks to its weather conditions and boundless offer of activities, Catalonia represents an ideal place to enjoy any type of land and water sports with a corporate group

Catalonia has a rich heritage related to sports. In particular, it is home to several internationally recognized sports teams and is known for hosting famous sporting competitions andvarious sport-focusedbusiness meetings and events.

It is not only the presence of major football team FC Barcelona, the MotoGP, and the annual Formula 1 race held at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, or the prestigious Tennis Tournament Open Banc Sabadell, that attracts thousands of fans to Catalonia every year. The combination of major sports events and a commitment to the future makes Catalonia a powerful destination for creatingsport-related experiences.

In Catalonia, you can find almost any kind of landscape and activity place for your enjoyment: large (and also hidden small) beaches that stretch for more than 200km along the Costa Brava, high mountains – ready to be climbed and discovered, panoramic roads where you can cycle all day long, and many more. 

The diversity of the offer makes it impossible to choose, but you can try them one after another

Additionally, Catalonia has a wide spectacular selection of sports options which are MICE orientated: hotels with diverse sports facilities, international competitions with the best hospitality services, meeting spaces in sports facilities and a portfolio of unique products and services for professional events related to the sports industry or for incentives and meetings that wish to include sports in their program. No other European country has such a high concentration of sports businesses.

So, where can you start, when choosing Catalonia for your next event? There are plenty of options for all tastes. Skydiving in Empuriabrava, while enjoying beautiful views of the Costa Brava, participating in classic outdoor team-building activities that everyone loves, or even riding a Dragon Boat in the Olympic Channel close to Barcelona (no worries, you don’t need any sailing experience).

Or maybe take it bigger and come for the sailing competition America’s Cup, that will take place in Barcelona in 2024. This event is considered the third most high-profile sporting event in a territory, after the Olympic Games and the FIFA World Cup. However, the event will not only bring exciting competitions and many boats, but also an even wider range of nautical experiences.

We feel honored to be collaborating with Catalonia Convention Bureau and promote this destination. The region’s love for sports has created a unique vibrant culture that continues to evolve, creating more opportunities and experiences to try.
