spb palma marzo

Representatives of Donostia San Sebastián Turismoa and its Convention Bureau were present at the 2023 Encounter and Annual Assembly of the Congress City Network - Spain Convention Bureau - created as part of the Spanish Federation of Municipalities and Provinces (FEMP), held on 16 and 17 March in Palma de Mallorca.

The encounter was organised for a debate on the Meetings Industry or MICE sector, one of the tourism segments which is doing most to mitigate the seasonality of tourism at destinations, generating value and growth and helping maintain steady high-quality employment. According to the Spanish Statistics Institute's figures for 2021, meetings tourists spent 283.40 € per day, as against 83.20 € by leisure tourists.

Over two days, experts and professionals and the representatives of 62 Spanish congress destinations discussed new features and innovation in a market which is constantly evolving.
