2016 Tourism trade fair calendar

A total of 38 trade fairs in 14 countries to promote the Costa Brava and Pirineu de Girona tourism brands in 2016.


The Costa Brava Girona Tourist Board is scheduled to participate in 38 tourism trade fairs this year, two less than in 2015. Four new trade fairs are added to the calendar this year, two of which are industry-specific –ConfecRed in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates focuses on business tourism, while ILTM Americas in Mexico will shine the spotlight on luxury tourism. Expovacaciones in Bilbao and AITF in Baku, Azerbaijan, showcase tourism in general.

Of the 38 trade fairs on the calendar, 22 are specifically dedicated to product, where the Board will promote regional products including food, golf, scuba diving, water sports, hiking and cycling, as well as business and luxury tourism, among others. These events are attended by end users, professionals or a combination of both, giving the Board ample opportunities to focus on both industry experts and the general public.

Girona will share a space with Turespaña and Catalonia at some international trade fairs, with its own space at others where the Board will promote the destination through tastings and a range of promotional activities.
