Filled with historical heritage and a whimsical world full of adventure, Barcelona is a flourishing wedding destination with several stunning venues where you can host your dreamy nuptials. We had the great opportunity of getting in touch with The Barcelona Tourism Board who gave us an insight on all the reasons that will compel you to host the wedding of your dreams in the alluring city of Barcelona.
The Barcelona Tourism Board, is the official body responsible for promoting the city. Since their beginning they have been diligently promoting Barcelona in a segmented way focusing on the demand. In this sense, they have several programs with which the city is being promoted such as; the Barcelona Convention Bureau, Barcelona Food & Wine, Barcelona Shopping City, Barcelona Sports, Barcelona Sustainable Tourism, etc.
Mireia Tubau from Barcelona Weddings stated, “In 2016, we decided to promote the city with new strategic lines focused on quality vs quantity, so we realized that Destination Weddings were a new niche market at the tourism industry and we decide to start with its promotion”.
Additionally, The Barcelona Turisme Weddings’ forward plan is to present and promote Barcelona as a quintessential wedding destination. So, as well as attending various B2B events, like the DWP Congress, to introduce this new program, the focal aim is to increase the demand for destination weddings. Tubau retiterates, “For us it is incredibly important to promote the active presence of Barcelona at the destination weddings market in an attempt to co-ordinate with the interested sectors in fostering tourism and weddings. Boosting the wedding sector in areas relating to the accommodation, gastronomy, local wedding planners, local wedding suppliers and other cultural and leisure activities also plays a pivotal role in our development”.
Essentially, Barcelona Turisme Weddings is a specialized Turisme de Barcelona programme designed to endorse the city as a viable destination for weddings as well as offering free neutral advisory services, for planners interested in organizing luxury weddings and in-depth knowledge of this splendid city.
On behalf of the Barcelona Turisme Weddings, “Our philosophy is to go step by step, recognizing the main events about destination weddings for promotional bases but also to identify the key players in this niche market such as the esteemed Destination Wedding Planners Congress”.
