Long Description:
This Wikipedia entry is in Catalan so I Google translated most of it to, "Catalonia Palace of Congresses is a convention center located in Avenida Diagonal 659 Barcelona, designed by architects Carlos Ferrater and Josep Maria Cartañà. Opened in April 2000 and the official opening was held on 19 June 2000 in the presence of King Juan Carlos, Queen Sofia, President Jordi Pujol, the Minister of Science and technology, Anna Birulés, and the Mayor of Barcelona, ??Joan Clos. It was the first private palace of congresses in Barcelona, promoted by Barcelona's Project group company Saudi radius Shuaib, owner of the adjacent Hotel Rey Juan Carlos I."
