Up to 1,500 Barcelona residents from the international community attended the 6th Hola Barcelona! Cocktail at the Palauet Albéniz in Montjuïc. It was a lavish event with very little expense spared, starting with a spectacular performance from the Barcelona-based theatre group “Broadway A Capella” who performed songs from “The Greatest Showman” and ending with innovative catering from Torres & Hellman.
The evening was hosted by local celebrity and CEO of Creative.net Bibiana Ballbè and our Co-founder and CEO, Tony Anagor. Presentations were given by the Mayor of Barcelona, Ada Colau, and the Chairman of Barcelona Global, Pau Guardans i Cambó, as well as speeches from two Barcelona-based foreign entrepreneurs, Staffan Shüberg, CEO of Esteve, and Jelena Trajikovic Karamata, Head of Global Digital Hub at Nestlé.
When I was asked to co-host this prestigious event, I had no hesitations said Tony Anagor. Barcelona is a city I love and has given wings to my dreams, it is great for others to see what a wonderful opportunity it is to live and work in Barcelona. Barcelona Global has worked tirelessly to take this message to the talent around the world.
This was the 6th year of the event, which is organised by Barcelona Global a non-profit organisation that aims to make Barcelona one of the world’s best cities for talent and economic activity. It is made up of over 800 members from almost 150 of the city’s leading companies, research centres, entrepreneurs, business schools, universities and cultural institutions and specifically addresses projects in Barcelona in the areas of Entrepreneurship and Competitiveness, Research and Knowledge, Culture, Tourism and Social Impact.
The night was a huge success and we would like to thank all who attended to make this event such a memorable event.
