From the very first day in 1995, when we opened our doors as Spain's first Digital Advertising and Marketing agency, we've been an International agency:
- Two founding partners with an extensive, seasoned Global Business background:
an "International American" from Seattle and a well-travelled Catalan from Spain.
- A multilingual, multicultural staff. And a keen understanding of Intercultural Communication.
- All of this has meant that Barcelona Virtual has always envisioned a future far beyond the borders of Iberia.
Call it our Global Dream.
In March, 2017, that dream became a reality when Paul and Pep met with founder, Hervé Kabla and 9 other digital agencies in Paris to form Affinità (go to the web), "a network of entrepreneurial, independent agencies hand-picked for their energy, expertise and effectiveness."

Now that the network has been publicly launched in Berlin (UPDATED Press release: New York, October 2019), Affinità is off and running.
Together, the agencies represent more than 100 international consumer & business brands and organisations, including Allianz, AMC, Volvo, Cisco, Total, Siemens, Unilever, Deutsche Bank, Peugeot, Samsung, PlayStation and Audi.
Combined annual revenues of the group, when founded in 2017, exceeded €30M, with a wide range of services.
Not only do we seek synergies and business opportunities between the 20 Affinità offices; we also actively share knowledge, tools and cultivate an international focus amongst Millennial members of our teams.
In 2019, we'll continue to actively foster exchanges between agencies and departments.
