Alicante City & Beach Municipal Tourist Board and the Turespana Convention


Deputy Mayoress and head of the Alicante City & Beach Tourist Board, Mari Carmen Sanchez, attended the convention, which began on Monday, October 3.

The Alicante City & Beach Municipal Tourist Board took part in the second Turespana Convention which ran until Wednesday, October 5, in Barcelona. This year the convention was dedicated to the “Governance of Tourism,” Alicante Town Hall confirmed on Thursday, October 6. 

Mari Carmen Sanchez held meetings with Turespana advisors from Germany, Sweden, the Netherlands and Japan. Sanchez confirmed that “these meetings are important for the planning of the promotion of Alicante abroad. Turespana is the one who coordinates the national action of the different Spanish destinations.”

Different Turespana advisors also gave presentations on markets in Europe, America and Asia.

Prior to this convention, the Alicante City & Beach Tourist Board has already held meetings with Turisme Comunitat Valenciana to prepare the Operational Plan for next year in terms of foreign promotion, and this forum will help both administrations to finalise the proposals.
