Join us on Spain’s Costa Daurada!

El Vendrell offers an ideal setting in which to blend business with adventure. The Conference takes place in the 5-star Le Meridien Ra resort, located on the sparkling blue waters of Sant Salvador Beach, just 35 minutes from Barcelona Airport.

Once the technical sessions and meetings end, let the adventure begin! Travel back to 475 BC inside the Iberian Citadel’s interactive museum. Explore ancient architecture, monuments and the remains of the Roman’s Augustan Way. Book a catamaran or snorkeling adventure. Taste gourmet olive oils, vinegars, and wines, including the sparkling wine, cavas, which is produced in this Penedès region. Or simply recharge on Costa Daurada’s beautiful beaches, as you listen to the sounds of Mediterranean waves, lapping softly on the shore. Learn more on
