FC Barcelona institutional vice-president Carles Villarrubí will participate in a symposium this Tuesday in London organised by the Generalitat’s Governmental Delegation to the United Kingdom and Ireland. Members of the British press core, Catalan correspondents to London and the UK are expected to attend.
Barça will be the focus during the press dinner, which is held annually in January, and vice-president Villarubí will explain to the audience the principal characteristics that define the Club in its institutional, athletic and historic aspects.
The country’s most influential press outlets are expected to attend: The Independent, The Daily Telegraph, Financial Times, the BBC and STV, in addition to Irish and Scottish journalists. Catalan and Spanish reporters are also expected to attend.
The event, which is hosted annually by the Delegation of the Generalitat in the United Kingdom, focuses on issues related to promoting Catalonia. In past editions of the event representatives of the Tourism Board were the main speakers, last year, for example, the president of Vueling, Alex Cruz, spoke about the importance of Barcelona’s growing aeronautical influence in Europe.
