Boost predicted for Barcelona following World Aquatic ChampionshipsThe economic rewards of hosting the FINA World Aquatics Championships for Barcelona next year should be great, according to the communications director of the competition’s Organising Committee.

Mercè Vallès added that more than 80,000 bookings for hotels in Barcelona will be made specifically for the event, which runs from 19 July – 4 August.

It is hoped that the competition will increase interest in aquatic sport throughout Spain as preparations begin to intensify with less than a year to go until the event hits the Catalonian capital.

A city famed for hosting major sports events, Barcelona has been the creator of dreams for competitors across the world for decades now, with the memorable Olympic and Paralympic Games serving as a great reminder.

Be sure to combine any trip to next year’s FINA World Aquatics Championships with a stay in one of the fine Barcelona hotels, although be prepared to book any plans during the competition soon to avoid disappointment.
