Update on the political situation in Barcelona: No impact on the preparation and expected procedure of CMR2018.

As local organizers confirm, all recent meetings in Barcelona were performed without any concerns regarding safety, daily life, or meeting organization. The political situation in Catalonia will not affect the largest CMR meeting ever to be held in Barcelona from January 31 to February 3, 2018. Here is an excerpt from the official notification we have received: “Beyond the news headlines, this strictly political issue is not altering the everyday city life. Barcelona continues to be a well-organized and welcoming city, ranked among the top twenty safest cities in the world. The population remain faithful to their peaceful and positive character; economic and cultural events are running as planned.”
