57 travel agents and 16 journalists from the Balearic Islands attend the "Pirineu de Girona 2012 – 2013" presentation.
On 15th November, the Patronat de Turisme, together with ten inland and mountain tourism bodies and companies, held a promotional and communication event entitled "Pirineu de Girona 2012-2013" at the Hotel Nixe Palace in Palma (Majorca) for 57 travel agents and 16 journalists based in the Balearic Islands.
The event began in the evening with a workshop aimed at exchanging views on the tourism offering of the Girona area and the tourism demand of the Balearic travel agencies. Barceló Viajes, Globalia, Iberojet, Solplan, Adetour Baleares, Gestora Balear de Viajes, Un Món de Viatges, Open Travel 24, Ponentours Viatges, Vibo Viajes and Mayka Tours were just some of the agencies that took part. The tourism bodies and companies from the Girona area that attended included Solineu Hotels, Catalunya Park Hotels, the Les Cols restaurant, Hotel Cal Sastre, Catalan Government Railways (Vall de Núria, Catalan Government Railways), La Molina, Vall d’en Bas and Santa Pau, along with the Patronat itself.
The workshop was followed by a presentation of the destination, which ended with the showing of the Pirineu de Girona promotional video, officially unveiled at this event. The promotional event ended with a gastronomic dinner prepared by the chef Fina Puigdevall, of the Les Cols restaurant in Olot, which boasts 2 Michelin stars.
The Patronat de Turisme views this marketing and communication event very positively, taking place four years after the previous direct initiative. Its purpose is two-fold: on the one hand, to offer specific and up-to-date information on the tourism assets and products of the Pirineu de Girona destination and, on the other hand, to strengthen professional relations.
