Hotels in Barcelona, Spain Fill Up Quickly With Travelers Flocking to the City's Events

Concert-Goers and Trade Show Delegates Alike Enjoy the Stylish Hospitality of the Renaissance Barcelona Hotel This Season

BARCELONA, SPAIN -- (Marketwired) -- 01/13/14 -- Barcelona routinely attracts many visitors for many reasons. Its beaches, museums and architecture top a very long list of things to see and do, and that list is getting even longer during the next few months. From concerts, to trade shows, to cruises, Barcelona has it all, and only one central Barcelona hotel can keep pace with the city's event calendar: the Renaissance Barcelona Hotel.

One of the biggest attractions in Barcelona, Spain this winter is the Depeche Mode concert. Equal parts high-energy and nostalgic, the concert, which is part of the band's Delta Machine tour, will rock out at the Palau Sant Jordi on January 15, 2014. Two weeks later, Michael Bublé will also be performing at the Palau Sant Jordi on January 30, 2014. Concert-goers can start the evening off with tapas and drinks at the hotel's CUIT Bar & Lounge before singing along to all their favorite songs at the shows.

Barcelona doesn't just attract revelers, however. This historic city will also welcome two major trade fairs this spring: The premier mobile-industry event, the Mobile World Congress, will welcome thousands of communication-technology experts between February 24 and 27, 2014; and Alimentaria's trade show, which is among the biggest for the food-and-beverage industry, will get underway between March 31 and April 3.

This elegant hotel in Barcelona is ideally suited for such corporate travelers. The fresh, clean-lined lobby invites guests to congregate before or after meetings, spend some time on the computer or relax after a long day. The fitness center offers a healthy way to unwind after a day of meetings, while the CUIT Bar & Lounge is a perfect venue to relax with colleagues and friends. Guests can anticipate sampling a traditional tapas-style cuisine of Spanish Platillos, tucking in to the finest cuts of USDA-certificated Black Angus beef, and enjoying signature cocktails while discussing the highlights of the day's events.

As spring gradually blooms, so too do additional travel opportunities. Easter arrives during some of the best beach months of the year in 2014, and guests can anticipate a package that lets them take advantage of the momentous holiday along with the enviable temperatures. And with the Port de Barcelona close by, travelers can enjoy the convenience of staying in some of the most beautiful hotel rooms in Barcelona before setting sail. Accordingly, visitors will soon be able to capitalize on a package geared toward cruise-ship passengers. That long list of things to see and do, it seems, shows no sign of trailing off.

To learn more about upcoming packages, travelers may contact the hotel at 34-93-2723810 or visit www.renaissancebarcelonahotel.com.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored.

And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. Jack Norris reviews best practices to show how companies develop, deploy, and dynamically update these applications and how this data-first...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
