    Meetings Leadership Summit

    The Meetings Leadership Summit (MLS) at ibtm world is the high-profile, invitation only event that kicks off ibtm world. We were delighted to bring the 2016 Meeting Leadership Summit to probably the most recognisable venue of all, Camp Nou, the home of FC Barcelona, Europe’s largest stadium with a capacity of almost 100,000.

    The event gave 200 of the most senior executives from operators across the global meetings industry a unique tour of the most exclusive zones and behind-the-scenes areas of Camp Nou accompanied by an FC Barcelona official guide.
