Tourism fairs

The tourism offer of the Costa Brava and the Pirineu de Girona is promoted in local and international fairs.

The Patronat de Turisme Costa Brava Girona participated in the Tour Salon fair in Poznan (Poland) from 24th to 27th October with a space at the Turespaña stand, where it presented the tourism offer of the Costa Brava to professionals from the Polish tourism sector. This fair mainly featured the extensive and varied tourism offer of the Costa Brava, along with more specific tourism products from the area as a whole, such as greenways, culture and gastronomy etc. Poland is an emerging market for the Costa Brava and Pirineu de Girona destination and tends to operate through tour operators. Together with the Patronat de Turisme, three Girona-based inbound travel agencies were present: NT Incoming, Viatges Voramar and Settravel.

Meanwhile, from 27th October to 1st November the Patronat de Turisme Costa Brava Girona also took part in the Trek and Walk fair, the section of the Girona Trade Fair devoted to the promotion of active tourism and nature-related leisure activities, together with Girona Provincial Council and its public health body, Dipsalut, and the Greenways Consortium of the counties of Girona.

The Patronat de Turisme, representing the tourism offer of the Costa Brava and the Pirineu de Girona as a whole, presented several new tourism products and services for visitors, offered up-to-date tourism information on the area and on accommodation, along with options for nature and gastronomic activities, cultural events and top sports competitions for the 2013 season, such as the Costa Brava Xtrem Running event and the Ultra-distance Trail Race in La Cerdanya.

In November, the Patronat de Turisme will be taking part in the World Travel Market international tourism fair in London and in two specialised fairs for professionals: the IGTM, in the Algarve (Portugal), dedicated to golf, and Seatrade Med, in Marseille (France), dedicated to cruise travel.
