In line with its 2014 Action Plan, from 2 to 4 September the Costa Brava Girona Convention Bureau carried out a programme of sales visits in the French city of Toulouse.

The Bureau held meetings with project managers in events agencies and with corporate events organisers, accompanied by a French representative of Poleo, an external services company. The programme involved four or five meetings a day over three days.
These meetings led to requests from French agencies for meeting packages, including several days’ accommodation, meeting rooms and activities for company groups.

Subsequently, from 25 to 28 September, the Costa Brava Girona Convention Bureau took part in a familiarisation trip organised by the Catalunya Convention Bureau for associations and entities which organise conferences in Spain. The participants visited the outstanding conference facilities and spaces on offer in Girona and the surrounding area, as well as the facilities and premises affiliated to the Lloret Convention Bureau. Complementary activities included a boat trip and cookery lesson at the l’Espai del Peix fisheries education centre in Palamós.
