Enjoy a magnificent evening at one of Barcelona's most historic venues

The Casa Llotja is located on the seafront of Barcelona’s historic center.

It was built in the second half of the 14th century, in the typical stunning Catalan Gothic style of the time and was used for shipping merchants to conduct their business and store their wares.

Walking distance from Las Ramblas, the Cathedral as well as the sea, it's an ideal location to explore before the Rising Stars awards. Enjoy a stunning evening in the spectacular hall with its beautiful columns and Gothic decor. This will be an event you will not want to miss!

About the Rising Stars Awards




Based on the success of the Automotive News Europe EUROSTARS event honoring the leaders of the automotive industry, it was decided to implement a new yearly program honoring those automotive executives in middle and upper management who are likely to become the 'Eurostars' of tomorrow, together with the companies who are nurturing that future leadership talent. These 'Rising Stars' are already setting the agenda for the industry of tomorrow and stand to reap the biggest rewards over the next decade

In 2016 the Rising Stars came from all disciplines - designers, engineers, financial bosses, purchasing and product planners - and from companies across Europe, including BorgWarner, Delphi, Faurecia, Ferrari, Johnson Controls, Kia and Toyota to name just a few.
