In recent years, the Canary Islands have ceased to be a unique tourist vacation destination; although it is true that this type of tourism is the central axis of the industry. Since a few years ago, an incipient tourism of fairs and congresses has been constituted that, with time, has been gaining great importance. It is, for example, the BPD of Santa Cruz in summer that, step by step, has managed to become a national reference for this type of event. In this Congress of Canary Futurism, to celebrate in Los Cristianos on May 23, 24, 25 and 26, 2018, it is also intended to have great weight in the sector.
Fairs and congresses in Tenerife: What is Futurismo Canarias?
In this 2018 will be held the fifth edition of Futurismo Canarias, the business forum for tourism professionals, which will be held from May 23 to 26, 2018 at the Infanta Leonor Auditorium in Los Cristianos; in addition to the Relab room of the Spring Arona Gran Hotel, in the South of Tenerife.
In this edition, Futurismo Canarias will become the reference forum on tourism at a national level; given its innovative format, high-value content and its call, which is multitudinous.
Futurism will feature speakers of significant national and international value, as well as renowned guests that will help address the future of the tourism industry globally.
In this edition Futurismo Canarias will have the following speakers:
- Amuda Goueli: Co-founder and CEO of Destinia.
- David Sáez: Director of Vertical Tourism on Facebook.
- Ester de Nicolás: Sales Technical Director for Intelligent Cloud Solutions in Microsoft Spain.
- Marius Donhauser: CEO of Hotelkit, hotel software company.
Futurismo, TLP … alternative offers
These proposals and this boom of another type of tourism, away from the traditional sun and beach, are conferring the Islands as another attractive point. They are no longer just a destination of passage and vacations; They bring added value when it comes to holding congresses. The same infrastructures that already, to perfection, take the tourist industry, have been put at the service of fairs and congresses, each one more important.
It is excellent news for the islands in general, and for Los Cristianos in particular; in terms of opportunity to offer the world from another perspective. The referred TLP (Tenerife Lan Party) usually approaches the figure of two million euros in revenue in just one week; something unthinkable with traditional tourism, at least in such a short time. That is why the importance that this type of tourism is taking; as well as cultural tourism, which we will discuss in future articles.
Futurismo, in addition, offers the information on which to sustain the foundations of the future of the industry at the local, regional and national level. It is an unmissable event for professionals in the sector; and an important appointment, for the conclusions that will be reached there, for the users of it.
