"AOPC was proud to nominate the Barcelona Convention Bureau (BCB), to receive the distinction of the IAPCO Supplier Award recognizing the professionalism of the BCB, and the dynamism and dedication of the entire team, that has united various partners, suppliers and hosts to continuously support and bring business to its destination. Since its earlier days, almost 30 years ago, we have all witnessed the growth and development of Barcelona over the years, becoming one of the top leading destinations in our industry, competing fairly with other European and overseas destinations," Bellés said at the award presentation during EIBTM. "Whilst without singling out anyone, we would like to recognize the forward-looking strategically thinking and, most particularly, all the personal investment of Mrs. Airy Garrigosa, its former leader, and ask her together with Christoph Tessmar, as present Director of the Barcelona Convention Bureau, to receive your well-deserved award on behalf of the BCB and its whole professional team and members."
