IMO Convention Center

Since opening its new premises in 2009 in a prime location of Barcelona, the IMO has made its spaces available to agencies, companies and medical societies to hold corporate events, as well as professional meetings, courses and conferences.

IMO CONVENTION CENTRE, consisting of 1,400 m² of floor space, boasts an auditorium, an adjoining lecture room with fixed seating, a multipurpose open-plan function room, a foyer for hosting exhibitions and other activities, and a spacious outdoor garden area.

This new concept of professional event venue also offers additional optional services, such as catering managed by an outside company and two car park levels, to provide top-quality comprehensive amenities to attendees at any professional or corporate gathering held on the premises.

And all of the above in an innovative and iconic building designed by the architect Josep Llinás (FAD Award 2006) and situated in a prime location surrounded by nature within Barcelona itself, over which it offers panoramic views.


IMO CONVENTION CENTRE auditorium is equipped with a full-HD projection system (capable of projecting in 3D) and sound. Its facilities also include an audiovisual control booth and two simultaneous interpreter booths.

Each of the seats has its own power socket, laptop table and individual microphones to enable attendees and speakers or moderators to interact.

The layout of the stage and the acoustics of the auditorium also make it ideal for staging plays, performances and concerts.
