Sitges Tourism

Between March and April, the Department of Tourism activates more than 30 tourism promotion actions

The actions seek to attract tourists with a positive return for the destination, and many of the proposals are worked on jointly with the business community and others with territorial promotional entities.

During the months of March and April, the Tourism Department of the Sitges City Council intensifies promotional actions to attract tourists who adapt to the needs of the destination, based on available studies. These needs are included in the 2022-2026 Marketing Plan.

The vision of Hispanic art, from "Fortuny to Picasso" and which will be exhibited at the Kadriorg National Art Museum in Tallinn, between April 12 and September 1, 2024.

Business tourism

The Sitges Convention Bureau, a program focused on business tourism, continues its promotional work abroad. In the coming weeks he will attend two international workshops, one in Madrid and another in London, the latter specialized in the pharmaceutical field. It is also planned that in May the Department of Tourism will participate in three commercial actions focused on the European issuing markets with the aim of making the offer known to operators, which are added to the six international commercial actions through which it has been reached a total of 360 meeting and conference organizers.

 

All these actions bear fruit and translate into requests for quotes for meetings and conferences in the municipality to later be held in Sitges. In 2024, 78 requests have been managed and the commitment of the automotive and mobility sector to the destination has been reaffirmed. Toyota and Volvo have organized presentations in Sitges, and Lexus has launched the new Lexus LBX in its dealer network.
