The Gran Via exhibition area is just outside the city centre in a suburb of Barcelona. The exhibition centre is excellent, but apart from a shopping mall and an IKEA, there are few attractions in this business area. The Gran Via exhibition center is close to the Barcelona city center by train or taxi and many Fira Gran Via business visitors choose to stay in Barcelona. 

If you plan to go by public transport to the Gran Via exhibition area, but prefer to stay in Barcelona city center, then you might want to consider booking hotels close to the street Gran Via in Barcelona.

If you are in a hotel close to the Gran Via street, then you can take the L1 red metro line to Plaza Espanya - then from the Plaza Espanya metro station you change on the same metro ticket to the FGC train network to get to the FGC station called Europa Fira on L9 , which has a stop directly at the Gran Via exhibition area.
