Corporate Design Centres

The Corporate Design Centres & Hospitality Board Design programme promotes the development of ecosystems that encourage new corporate design centres to get established, and offers support to those already active here.

For a multinational company, relocating its design department and creating a satellite in another country offers, in a global context, the opportunity to achieve a double objective: the prospect of steering into a new market, plus the possibility of encouraging competitiveness at corporate level amongst the different creative teams, thus improving their output.

Barcelona hosts an increasing number of design departments from large and medium size companies, at national and international level. Furthermore, the city is a reference for creative teams coming from companies abroad wishing to find out what is cooking in Barcelona, a city that attracts a great amount of international creative talent.

This program aims to:

  • Facilitate the contact with local and regional institutions.
  • Offer meeting points for the different centres belonging to the Barcelona network.
  • Design agendas and activities for those visiting our city.
  • Offer support to companies searching for an extraordinary place to develop their activity, being on a permanent or a one-off basis.

Over the last three years, BCD organised activities participated by companies such as Google, SAP, Vodafone, Procter & Gamble, LG, Alstom, Microsoft, Nokia, General Motors, Airbus, Motorola, Ikea, Sony Ericsson or Mercedes-Benz.
