X International Tourism Forum Maspalomas Costa Canaria.

The Maspalomas Costa Canaria International Tourism Forum shall host its 10th Edition between 17th – 18th November 2022. This year we would like to continue with its vocational international nature, hence it shall coincide with the International Conference on Tourist Islands, co-organized by the Canary Government and the Excelcan Association, in support of the proposal to appoint the Canary Islands as the permanent seat of the European Tourism Agency.

Continuity of this event is the best evidence of a summoning success which gathers hundreds of tourism specialists and professionals in the main tourist municipality of Gran Canaria on an annual basis. Organised by the Town Hall of St. Bartolomé de Tirajana, the Canary Government, the Island Council of Gran Canaria and the University of Las Palmas of Gran Canaria, through its Faculty of Economics, Business and Tourism Management, this Forum provides the ideal framework for exchanging opinions and experiences, concerning the main challenges of this industry and their possible solutions, also presenting the trends that shall determine the future for tourist businesses.
