Advantage Travel Partnership Names Cadiz for 2019 Conference
14 May 2018
As the 2018 conference in Miami came to a close, Advantage Travel Partnership’s newly appointed CEO Julia Lo Bue-Said, announced the consortia will be heading to the Andalusian city and port of Cadiz, in southwest Spain in 2019, 17 – 20 May 2019.
The conference will be held at the Cadiz Conference Centre, a former striking tobacco factory that has maintained many original features, located in the old town. The conference centre is surrounded by cobbled streets, with the town hall and cathedral nearby, as well as charming squares and an abundance of tapas restaurants and bars. The conference centre’s multiple auditoriums will host leisure and business travel members for the main speaker sessions, seminars and speed date networking, with a large sunny, outside terrace available for breaks.
Advantage Conference guests can stay in a number of hotels situated in the old and new town, located either a short walk or less than a ten-minute car transfer from the conference centre.
On behalf of Andalucía Tourism and Cadiz Tourist Board, UK Director of the Spanish Tourist Office, Javier Piñanes commented: “We are delighted to be hosting the Advantage Travel Conference in Cadiz next year. Cadiz, a coastal city in the southern region of Andalucía, is among some of the oldest settlements in Europe and one of Spain’s most attractive cities. Boasting an incredible historic centre and culture, those who visit always enjoy the great tapas bars and authentic Spanish atmosphere.”
Chief Executive Officer, Julia Lo Bue-Said said: “As the Advantage conference is a yearly event in many members’ calendars we chose Cadiz as the 2019 venue because it offers a juxtaposed experience to Miami.
“Cadiz is historical, traditional and a wonderfully European destination. The nearest airport is Jerez with a direct daily flight from Stansted airport and a thirty-minute transfer time. Delegates can also fly direct to Seville or Gibraltar.
“Miami has been a resounding success and we look forward to welcoming Advantage members in Cadiz!”
