Vilanova i la Geltrú welcomes you with open arms. This seaside city, capital of the county of Garraf, has everything you need to feel at home during your stay, whether it’s for business, pleasure, family or any other reason.
MICE (meetings, incentives, conferences and events) tourism is growing in popularity in our country, thanks to our moderate climate, our cultural and leisure options, along with our superb infrastructures. Vilanova i la Geltrú has organised its resources, services and assets in order to position itself in this segment, producing a catalogue of services that aims to showcase the city as an ideal destination for your events.
So what does Vilanova i la Geltrú offer for those who are planning to organise a conference, convention or similar event? Well, we could mention the sea, our beaches, or our unique cultural and festive heritage…
We could point to our gastronomy, natural landscape and local shopping, along with our lively cultural and social scene. We could mention the city’s entrepreneurial and creative spirit, its growing technological industry, its university and research centres, its port, or its strategic location, close to Barcelona and Tarragona.
We could say that Vilanova i la Geltrú is a welcoming, medium-sized city that offers everything you need to enjoy a comfortable stay, away from the hustle and bustle of large cities.
These are all absolutely valid and true reasons. Vilanova i la Geltrú has all these elements, making it an attractive city for holding events. However, we feel that what really sets Vilanova i la Geltrú apart, what makes it truly original and attractive, what gives it a unique personality, is something intangible: the light, the atmosphere, the character of the people… Wherever you come from, in Vilanova i la Geltrú you’ll feel that you’re part of the city, that it’s an old familiar place, that you’ve somehow always been there.
