Barcelona, Spain, October 20, 2006 – The online portal oh-barcelona.com today announced the launch of a special webpage offering a broad choice of apartment rentals available for the attendants of the 3GSM Worldcongress 2007, to be held in Barcelona from February 12th to February 15th on the Fira trade fair premises.

Christelle Perrin, Marketing Manager of oh-barcelona.com comments: “Last year over 50,000 visitors attended the congress which left no rooms available in the city. This year the 3GSM is set to be even bigger. Already now hotels are almost fully booked for the dates next year and visitors will have to be accommodated up to an 80 km distance from Barcelona.” She continues: “On oh-barcelona.com we still have apartments available in close proximity to the trade fair premises as well as directly in the city-centre of Barcelona. Many business travellers are not aware of short-term apartment rentals as a central and comfortable alternative. Despite their often luxurious décor, they usually work out cheaper than hotel rooms and add a homely feel to the business trip.”

In response to the troubles 3GSM visitors might go through when looking for a place to stay in Barcelona, a special landing page was designed and is now available in English, French, German, Spanish and Italian. It highlights apartments that are particularly well suited for the needs of 3GSM attendants. Within seconds a special search function brings up a list of all available apartments including prices, location maps and former client reviews. All rentals can be booked directly online with an instant confirmation, creating a fast and straight-forward reservation process. Dedicated customer service agents are also available to assist with the accommodation search and provide advice on which apartment best fits the individual needs of the client.

Oh-barcelona.com has been one of the major accommodation providers for Barcelona for the past 8 years, offering a broad selection of holiday and short-term rentals with a product portfolio of more than 300 furnished apartments and 200 hotels in Barcelona and surroundings. The website is recommended by organisations such as the Barcelona City Council, Easyjet or BusinessWeek online.
