The International Tourism of Catalonia Show (SITC 2014) will reinforce the growth of a sector that will feature the best national and international destinations, as well as the latest tourism proposals specific to the Mediterranean area and those related to gastronomy, wine tourism, sustainable tourism, cruises, travel agencies and camp sites. The event, which will hold its 23rd edition from April 4th to 6th 2014 in Fira de Barcelona’s Montjuïc exhibition centre, will have exclusive offers for new target audiences.
Catalans take 21.8 million trips a year and in 14.8 million cases, they decide to stay in their own Autonomous Community, according to data from the Tourist Studies Institute (2012). For this reason, one of the cores of the edition of SITC 2014 will be proximity tourism. Other options will be rural, gastronomy and wine routes, experiences that were the ones most requested by visitors for their holidays in 2013.
According to the show’s President, Raimon Martínez Fraile, SITC 2014 will be back “to show the latest trends and adapt to the needs of visitors: here they will find tailor-made holidays and will do so in a festive atmosphere, which will rouse their excitement for travelling and allow them to enjoy a world of experiences without leaving Barcelona”.
In addition to tourist options, the SITC 2014 will host an impressive range of side events that brought together 4,158 experts from the sector last year. The show will also organise professional meetings of leading tourist associations, organisations and companies to debate the latest trends and future challenges with the aim of promoting knowledge and new trade contacts.
The SITC 2014 is the event for lovers of travel. The International Tourism in Catalonia Show, sector leader in Spain among events aimed at end clients, has become one of the most important of the year for lovers of travel.
