According to Colnaghi, "Barcelona is the number one smart city in terms of architecture, education, tourism, technology, and much more". He highlights that the city's booming @22 district, which concentrates the headquarters of numerous tech multinationals, "is a platform of innovation where you have more and more international companies that are coming over to share expertise and know-how."

Colnaghi adds that the active local associations and pro-business authorities all help and support Barcelona as the center of tech in Europe.
