Sanitary plan

COVID-19 Impact on ISFWSC2021

The whole event industry has been impacted by the COVID-19.

At ISF a dedicated team is working on identifying and applying all the necessary actions to respect new sanitary measures for a secured and smooth ISF World Seed Congress 2021 in Barcelona. We are in constant contact with the Congress Center, the Hotels and all the social events venues to work on a adapted safe sanitary plan.

Furthermore, ISF and the National Organzing Committee (NOC) are also currently assessing the possibility of digitally organizing part of the ISF World Seed Congress 2021. More information will be posted on the ISF World Seed Congress website as we move forward in our reflection.

Please do regularly consult our website to follow the updates.

Accompanying Person

A wealth of amazing tours and fun activities

Barcelona is considered one of the most beautiful cities in the world, it is demonstrated with the more than 7 million tourists who visit it every year.
Thanks to its great weather, diet, and above all, its character, you will see the true meaning of the word ‘Mediterranean’ in Barcelona. Picasso, Miró, Dalí, Gaudí, Tàpies – they were in their time at the vanguard of their movements and their testing-ground was Barcelona. That creative flair and typical Catalan restlessness is very much part of the city today and this is reflected in the buildings, exhibitions, and the design and art that you will find in the most unexpected places such as the ‘Sagrada Familia’ or ‘La Casa Milà’, also known as ‘La Pedrera’, as well as the stadium of the F.C. Barcelona (Camp Nou) or museums such as Picasso, Miró or l’MNAC.
