ICT 2019 will be held in Barcelona, Spain

We had a very successful conference of 2018 in Guangzhou hosted by the South China University of Technology. We had both academic and industrial sessions. The participants enjoyed the conference and the city very much.

It is our pleasure to announce that the 9th International Conference on Tourism and Hospitality between China and Spain (ICT2019) will be held in the most colorful Mediterranean city - Barcelona, Sept. 30 - Oct. 2, 2019. The dates are chosen to connect to the Chinese National day golden week. We expect to have a large participation from both industrial and academic areas to the conference. Our host is the Autonomous University of Barcelona, one of the three biggest universities in Barcelona.

Barcelona is the cosmopolitan capital of Spain’s Catalonia region, it is best known for its art and architecture. The fantastical Sagrada Família church and other modernist landmarks designed by Antoni Gaudí dot the city. Museum of Picasso and Foundation of Joan Miró feature modern art by their namesakes. Other “must see” places include the street La Rambla starting from la Plaza de Catalunya, the magic fountain of Montjuïc, the home of Barcelona football team Camp Nou, … just to name a few.
