On Saturday 26th April ‘IBTA’ had the opportunity to spend a day visiting PortAventura Convention Centre, Hotel Caribe, Hotel PortAventura and Hotel Gold River, where they stayed with direct access to PortAventura Park.
During this day some members of the PortAventura Business & Events sales team gave the IBTA team a guided tour of the centre’s facilities. Among the attendees who were able to enjoy this visit were: Juli Buriel, General Manager of IBTA and Meritxell Gacimartín IBTA Communications Director, in addition to managers and representatives from companies such as Thea Laboratories, Autoglass, Farma Group, Jungheinrich, Global Event and Nissan.
Team members were able to enjoy a welcome dinner at Hotel Gold River’s Opera restaurant set in the Wild West. During the visit they did not pass up the opportunity to soak up the warm setting that recreates the fishing village of Mediterrània, savouring the moment with a glass of wine in the Vinosfera restaurant and later with a paella in the authentically Mediterranean Raco de Mar.
“These days have been packed and in my case I have returned to relive the spirit of PortAventura”, “It was a surprise to discover the magnificent convention centre and the possibilities that Port Aventura offers as a whole” were the impressions of David Catalán, Autoglass Customer Service, and Berta Sanchís, Nissan, respectively.
‘Fam Trip Travel Manager’: a product familiarisation trip.
‘Fam Trip’ is not only organised as a visit to the park, but also with the objective of gaining a better understanding of what the resort has to offer by way of events and conferences. With this first contact with the space, in 2014, the MICE sector will take on a more prominent role in future visits.
