The Barceló Montserrat Hotel is the ideal setting to hold this unique wine tourism conference event. We have selected this hotel on the basis of location, facilities, service, character and soul. Although it is part of chain of hotels it can be best described as a boutique hotel – very peaceful and very spacious and committed to the best local cuisine and fine wines.

The conference will bring together wine and tourism professionals from around the world to discuss, reflect on and develop their ideas. The conference programme will offer many opportunities for professional contact and development. It involves a 3-day programme of over 100 talks, posters, workshops, panel discussions and plenary sessions. The international nature of the conference provides a unique opportunity for all people interested or working in wine tourism to submit proposals for inclusion in the conference programme. It enables participants to contribute to a programme that reflects the diversity and variety of the profession. The conference also allows participants to benefit from networking professionally by exchanging experiences in informal discussion and/or presenting their professional views as part of the conference programme.
