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.

Digital Transformation is the ultimate goal of cloud computing and related initiatives. The phrase is certainly not a precise one, and as subject to hand-waving and distortion as any high-falutin' terminology in the world of information technology. Yet it is an excellent choice of words to describe what enterprise IT—and by extension, organizations in general—should be working to achieve. Digital Transformation means: handling all the data types being found and created in the organizat...
