Explore the MICE possibilities in Girona

Categories: Destination and Members CBGCB.

Girona is a city with lots of secrets to be discovered, which is well communicated and which offers the best services for hosting all kinds of events.

It is very easy to get there, thanks to its ideal location, just 37 minutes from Barcelona, 60 km from the French border and with excellent connections by high-speed train, air and road.

On combinar feina i oci és diferent: gastronomia i activitats a Girona

Girona is an incentive in itself. Enjoy its personality by strolling through the streets, discovering charming areas, a gastronomy that combines avant-gardism and tradition and the beat of a city that lives for the present. It is no coincidence that more and more event agencies and corporate organisers are choosing the city for their projects and coming back to it!

Among the members of the CBGCB, you will find exciting proposals for visiting Girona from different perspectives, adapted to the size and interests of each group.

You can get to know the old centre of Girona, following the places in which Game of Thrones was filmed. The GIGS guides have all the keys of the city’s past and present, as well as the secrets of the filming of the series in parts of Girona.

“Girona is a filmlike city, a city that takes you back to remote times and where your imagination can run wild in the Middle Ages. Actors, directors, stylists and so on: the more than 300 people on the staff of Game of Thrones have recommended Girona to friends and in the social networks. We do too! Just come and enjoy the experience!”

Rosa Duran, president of GIGS Girona

You can also choose a different, extremely convenient way of enjoying the city with tours on Ninebot (by Segway) from Gironaway: by taking an evening trip to make you feel hungry for supper, by visiting the old centre at midday and finishing up with a nice drink, or by organising a team-building activity.

“With us, you can take a route of several kilometres through the old centre of Girona and the surrounding area without getting tired. The reviews of our clients are highly positive, they recommend us and they come back!”

Ivan Sancho, coordinator of Gironaway

Girona Food Tours proposes seeing the city through its gastronomy: an experiential trip through the culinary tradition and history will help you enjoy the typical products and the charms of the city.

“We tell you about our gastronomy, our people and their stories. A genuine way of enjoying this marvellous city intensely.” 

Marc Gonkel, director of Girona Food Tours

Venues

Girona has two large structures that complement each other for hosting large-scale events: The Girona Trade Fair Centre and the Girona Conference Centre.

Their location near the city’s historic centre and 10 minutes from the train station, with high-speed train connections to Barcelona, Madrid and France, will help you optimise the travel time during the days your conference lasts.

Nothing can go wrong: the modern facilities include an auditorium for 1,200 people, satellite meeting rooms and clear spaces for organising commercial trade fairs and events. You will be in good company, with all the technical and professional services you need so that everything is perfect.

You will also be able to give a special touch to receptions, evening meals, presentations, conferences or small and medium-format meetings in the unique spaces linked to the history of the city. A mediaeval castle, Romanesque and Gothic cloisters, monasteries and stately homes converted into museums are just some of the examples of the adapted spaces with everything required for holding events.

Accommodation

The city’s hotel offer boasts a solid tradition of hosting MICE events. Their facilities, with meeting rooms and additional services, and their professional teams will be your allies during your stay in Girona.

Just a 10-minute walk from the high-speed train station and from the trade fair and conference centre are Hotel Carlemany, Hotel Ultonia and Hotel Gran Ultonia.

The main international chains are also represented in the city, with the newly constructed Doubletree by Hilton Girona, next to the trade fair and conference centre, Melià Girona, in the heart of the commercial area, and AC Palau de Bellavista, right next to the old centre, in a quiet area with spectacular views over the city.

If you are looking for a charming place for small-format meetings, there is Hotel Nord 1901, which is welcoming and right in the centre and which has meeting rooms. A highly select combination in the urban centre.
