San Sebastian, a destination for large events


San Sebastian consolidates its position as a destination for congresses of up to 2.000 delegates. In june 2015, three events managed to attract more than 5.300 medical and science professionals to the city.

Medical Spanish associations have successfully organised two of their biggest congresses in San Sebastian last june: Congreso Nacional de la Sociedad Española de Geriatría y Gerontología (SEGG) with 2.000 delegates and Congreso de la Sociedad Española de Medicina Intensiva, Crítica y Unidades Coronarias (SEMICYUC) with 1.800 delegates.

Every year, large international congresses choose San Sebastian to hold their important events. Last september it was the turn of the PSI-k Network, which celebrated its annual congress with more than 1.000 scientists in the city.

As far as corporate meetings are concern, San Sebastian is also a recognised and considered destination. Companies such as Wella and Orona have lately celebrated their annual corporate events with an attendance of 1.500 and 1.100 delegates respectively.
