MedaWeek Barcelona (Mediterranean Week of Economic Leaders) is an iconic economic conference dedicated to promoting the Mediterranean region worldwide. This event endorses the key economic sectors and the cultural values of this region through a wide variety of fora.
MedaWeek Barcelona serves as the main meeting point for voicing the interests of the private sector in the socio-economic development of the Mediterranean countries. Its 15th edition will take place from 17th to 19th November 2021, in hybrid format, with all forums broadcasted online from the Casa Llotja de Mar, in Barcelona (Spain).
Since its debut in 2006, MedaWeek Barcelona has been jointly organised by the Association of the Mediterranean Chambers of Commerce and Industry (ASCAME), in partnership with the Barcelona Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Services and Navigation, and with the collaboration of prominent Euro-Mediterranean organisations.
In line with this year’s claim “A future in common”, MedaWeek Barcelona 2021 will host numerous key thematic and sectorial fora. This edition will start with the 9th Mediterranean Green & Renewable Energy Summit, highlighting the importance of driving Mediterranean economies towards a more sustainable future. MedaWeek Barcelona will also address other key regional priorities, such as the importance of Africa for the Mediterranean development, as well as Agriculture and Food, Social Economy, Women Entrepreneurship, Healthcare or Islamic Finance. Discussions about the most deeply affected industries after COVID-19, like the Hotel & Hospitality and the Cruise sectors, will also be held. Moreover, the Creative and Sport Industries will be tackled as sectors that are becoming increasingly relevant for the recovery of the Mediterranean economy.
