Reaching out to internationals who have decided to live and work in Barcelona, drawing them in and getting them involved has been one of Barcelona Global’s objectives from the outset. To do that, we support the following activities.
Barcelona has a wide range of services, activities and facilities, which Barcelona Global wants to be known and available to the international talent living in our city. Hola Barcelona! Pack is a goody bag full of discounts and benefits designed for the association’s international members, including culture, sport, leisure, institutions, transport and the media, in the following institutions.
The task of integrate Barcelona’s international community has been taken up by our members, who open up their homes and host dinner gatherings to connect internationals with locals and help them to build a social network. Since 2014 a total of 80 dinners have been held, with 762 participants, 64% of whom were from outside of Spain.80Dinners762Participants64%
Barcelona attracts millions of tourists but has not been so good at welcoming the foreign nationals who have decided to live and work in our city. Four years ago, Barcelona Global decided to break the ice: each September, with the collaboration of the City Council, we hold a welcome event, which is attended by more than 1200 people, including 800 internationals of 60 nationalities.5Cocktails1200Participants70%View galleryView gallery
Barcelona is a city where things constantly happen. To the wide offer of local activities, there are more and more international events choosing Barcelona as the location for their celebration. From Barcelona Global, we want to bring all these big appointments to our members and we encourage their participation.
