Las Palmas de Gran Canaria
Audiotorio Alfredo Kraus. Gran Canaria Convention Bureau
Gran Canaria, and its capital, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, is an important tourist destination, and also the perfect place to hold all kinds of congresses. Here are just a few reasons why.
Gran Canaria is in the Canary Islands, just two hours flight from the Spanish mainland and four hours from the heart of Europe. It is an ideal destination for congresses, conventions and trade fairs thanks to its excellent year-round climate, its good transport links, attractive natural surroundings with beaches and mountains, a host of leisure options and its years of experience in organising events.
Sunshine is one of the main attractions of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. Every year, the good weather brings thousands and thousands of people to its coast to enjoy the stunning sandy beaches which are ideal for swimming at any time of year. If you want to combine your business event with water sports, then this is the place for you: scuba diving, water skiing, windsurfing and surfing are just a few of the options. This island is much more than sun and sand, though: it is countryside too. A large part of its area has the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve designation. If you’re a thrill-seeker, then make the most of the chance to indulge in activities like climbing, paragliding or hang-gliding. Gran Canaria's nightlife is also a major attraction.
Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is home to the Alfredo Kraus Auditorium - Canary Islands Conference Centre, an ideal venue for all kinds of congresses and business events, the Canarias Exhibition Centre (INFECAR) and the Gran Canaria Conference Centre. In the south of the island there is also a modern multi-purpose space situated very close to Maspalomas beach - ExpoMeloneras. The island also has an important programme of incentives.
