European Influencers Summit puts a different spin on the classroom with learning tours that take you to the experts to see how concepts are put into action.

FCB Camp Nou Headquarters
Learn how FC Barcelona, one of the most lucrative sports organisations in the world, is driving positive change for the sporting world and society. Travel to FCB’s Camp Nou headquarters to gain insight into their key strategic projects and their evolution into becoming a transformative platform for knowledge and innovation.

Hospital de Sant Pau
Unleash your creative energy and break through metal barriers during this tour of Hospital de Sant Pau, one of the most architecturally significant landmarks in Barcelona. Built at the turn of the 20th century, this former hospital has recently transformed into a museum and cultural center.

Immerse yourself in the unique learning spaces of 22@, Barcelona’s vibrant urban innovation district, as you visit Valkiria Hub Events. This district is where you’ll find a network of large companies, universities and technology centers, start-ups that work with companies on how to maximize the potential of new technologies.

The European Influencers Summit will feature an “Innovate + Elevate Hub,” an evolution of the “Innovate + Elevate Arena” introduced at 2019 PCMA Convening Leaders as a new approach to the traditional exhibition space. The Learning Hub will offer key areas for experiential learning and collaboration, including a podcast studio, open workspace for attendees to continue conversations sparked by education sessions, visual depictions of selected education sessions and plenaries, among other activations that will be revealed in due course.
