The Kursaal Convention Centre, along with the Donostia-San Sebastian Convention Bureau, hosted in September the ICCA European Workshop, the benchmark meeting with an international reach in the sector of congress tourism.

ICCA, the main reference of Congress Tourism in the international arena, promotes professional meetings for different sectors and destinations, both international and European.

Gipuzkoa’s capital became the headquarters of this important professional event in Europe, with the participation of ten convention centres in Europe and ten representatives of European associations who organise congresses that rotate through different European destinations. These congresses must meet very specific and demanding criteria. Furthermore, their representatives must demonstrate their ability to make decisions and influence in determining the destiny of future editions.

In the framework of this encounter, they all had the opportunity to see the Kursaal and San Sebastian first hand as a congress destination. To this end, both entities prepared a complete programme where participants visited various emblematic sites throughout the city, embarked on the “City of San Sebastian”, seeing the city from around the bay and experience Basque cuisine at some of our best restaurants.
