The Patronat de Turisme has successfully participated in the first international meeting of the world tourism industry, Fitur 2011, held in Madrid. The Snowboard World Championship in La Molina has placed the Catalan Pyrenees on the world map, while a commercial initiative aimed at Italian tour operators has served to promote the cultural offer of the area. Moreover, this January, six Costa Brava campsites have been internationally recognised as the best in Europe. The year has also got under way with new initiatives for promoting the brand and destination, one of the most interesting of which consists of an organised trip for international bloggers who blog about various tourism trips and destinations. Last of all, presentations of the Restalo online restaurant booking service will be held for local restaurant sector businesspeople.
