The large city in southern Galicia is the most populated in the Community, with close to 300,000 inhabitants. It is also the economic and industrial hub of Galicia, headquarters of several of the most important factories; and one of the key ports in the European Atlantic façade.
Vigo enjoys a vibrant cultural life driven by numerous museums and a wide agenda of concerts, theatrical performances and leisure events. The natural environment, in which treasures like the Parque Nacional das Illas Atlantic are found, and a mild climate make it excellent for hosting meetings and events throughout the year. The city has also known how to combine its Atlantic vocation with a fast-paced city centre, ideal both for business as well as a shopping, a visit to historic neighbourhoods or to enjoy Galician cuisine and seafood in its vast network of restaurants and taverns of all categories. As it is a university site this gives it also a jovial and innovative character.
With 4,000 hotel beds, its range of spaces for conferences is vast and varied, headed up by the convention centre, with 23,000 square metres; or the exhibition site. The large spaces are complemented by others of different features including rooms in historic buildings. Any of the options ensures that meetings and events will be successfully be carried out, and the invitation to be able to enjoy a welcoming, well communicated city after work that offers the best of the sea and the lands of Galicia.
