Valencia is more than just an enticing tourist destination, prized for its beaches, rich historical and cultural heritage, and extensive culinary and leisure offerings. It is also the ideal place for events, conferences and incentives. In addition to extensive hotel offerings and a modern conference centre renowned for its sustainability, there are a range of unique venues for gatherings: from art nouveau treasures such as Colón Market to examples of the most cutting-edge architecture, including the City of Arts and Sciences and the Veles e Vents Building at the Marina. And there is no shortage of options in nearly rural locales, from utterly delightful traditional country houses to former monasteries. 

In Valencia, working days can be combined with bike rides in the Turia Gardens, water sports in the Mediterranean, or a tapas circuit in the old town. Barely half an hour away, L’Albufera Natural Park offers visitors the chance to immerse themselves in nature, with boat rides to observe the abundant bird life and cycling trails through the paddy fields. Not to mention the opportunity to enjoy an authentic paella in the place where this iconic dish was born. Valencia is an all-round destination that combines tradition and modernity, with a commitment to sustainability in order to continue improving its offerings for successful events, conferences and incentives. 

València's success as a destination for MICE lies in its ability to strike a balance. Firstly, it exudes the vitality of a purely Mediterranean city, making it appealing to all. And secondly, it combines traditional venues with contrasting and spectacular avant-garde locations such as the City of Arts and Sciences and the Veles e Vents Building, making any event unique and incomparable. 

Another of the city's attractions is its size, which is considerable but not too large, while also offering 2000 years of history, beaches, natural spaces and a vibrant cultural events calendar. 

A mild year-round climate and a decided commitment to sustainability and accessibility in recent years add the perfect ingredients to position València among the top 50 conference destinations. 

A global pioneer, the city on the Turia was the first to certify the carbon footprint of its tourism activity and is committed to being a carbon-neutral tourist destination by 2025. And it is on the right path, joining the GDS Index; focusing on sustainable mobility, with more than 150 kilometres of bike lanes throughout the city and an increasing number of pedestrian precincts on its streets; promoting locally sourced catering providers supplied by the vast agricultural area surrounding the city; and offering cutting-edge venues in terms of energy efficiency, including the València Conference Centre. 

A bike ride through Turia Garden, the former riverbed which has been converted into an extensive garden running through the city; a catamaran ride at Malvarrosa Beach; a paella cooking demonstration in L’Albufera Natural Park; or an incentive event among the orange trees in the bountiful fertile area known as the huerta valenciana are just a few of the one-of-a-kind experiences the city offers, lending added value to any event. 

València is in a constant state of renewal, displaying its ability to reinvent itself, and the city will continue to share new offerings in upcoming years. 2022 will be València's year as World Design Capital, with new hotels opening their doors, along with a new headquarters for the CaixaForum cultural centres. 2023 will bring the opening of the Hortensia Herrero Art Centre, in the heart of the historic district, and the Casal España Arena, a multipurpose venue with a maximum capacity of over 18,000 people.
