INET 2004: Strengthening the Net: Building an Open and Trusted Internet

INET 04 - 10-14 May, Barcelona Spain

FIRA BARCELONA, May 10-14, 2004, Barcelona, Spain


Today, Barcelona is a dynamic and welcoming city which has become one of the major economic and business centres in Mediterranean Europe.

Thanks to its strategic geographical location, it extends its influence over a wide area of the Mediterranean and maintains tight relations with the EC market and Latin American countries.

Barcelona is the capital of Catalonia and is located on the coast, surrounded by the Collserola, sierra to the north, the river Besós to the east and the Llobregat to the west, and is less than 150 kilometres from the Pyrenees.

Located on the Mediterranean seaboard, it enjoys a warm, welcoming climate, with pleasant temperatures all year long.

Barcelona is a city which breathes art, contrasts and coexistence of cultures which endow it with a magic difficult to find in any other city. Important architectural works surprise visitors as they stroll along the streets, streets of a bustling city in which you can also find many tranquil spots and even beautiful beaches just minutes on foot from the city centre.

Barcelona has a modern hotel infrastructure and offers a host of first class shops and leisure, cultural and tourist activities.

For more information about Barcelona, see the web sites of the city of Barcelona or the Barcelona Tourist office.

INET/IGC 2004 coincides with the start of Barcelona's Forum 2004, a major series of multi-cultural events and happenings in the city - for more information, see the Barcelona Forum 2004 web site.
