The 62nd Maria Canals Piano Competition's Internet Success

Since 2007, has been the technology partner collaborating with the piano competition to seize the opportunities offered by the Internet.

The 62nd Maria Canals Competition has confirmed what has long been a fact. The two-week long international piano competition attracts music lovers from all over the world. During the competition, they may play the piano, enjoy improvised street performances at different cultural venues in Barcelona, or attend the performances of the competition’s finalists as part of the audience, making it a musical epitome for the inhabitants of Barcelona.

At, we collaborate with the International Maria Canals Music Competition by contributing knowledge in the fields of technology and the Internet. Once again, Abcore Cadi’s platform of services has been behind the competition's web page which, with time and effort, has made all necessary information available online. In addition, for yet another year, has played their part in establishing streaming capabilities from the Palau de la Musica Catalana. This has allowed Internet users that have previously been unable to go to auditions to now follow them online from their laptops or smartphones. There has also been a strategy and advice on social networks and Internet publicity using Google Adwords.

Some facts and figures demonstrating the impact made are:
