The MICE Report Awards are held annually with the aim of recognising excellence and distinction that companies or organisations provide in the service of their MICE customers and in business travel. Organised by the magazine The MICE Report, their nominations are based on an intense online vote in which a large number of professionals, guided by their own experience participate, including directors of companies that are experts in the MICE industry, business class travellers and organisers of major global events. Once the finalists are chosen, a professional panel chooses the winners.

Barcelona was unquestionably the protagonist of this edition of the MICE Report Awards since, in addition to the award given to Hesperia Tower, the city received two other awards. On one hand, its cosmopolitan nature and the regular convergence of professionals from different sectors and countries in the city for business confirmed it as the winner of the Best MICE Destination award. On the other, the work carried out by its professionals to promote Barcelona as a destination for business trips led to the title of Best Convention Bureau in Southern Europe.
