In Gijón, the largest and most cosmopolitan city in Asturias, open to the Atlantic, where blue and green blend together, you can enjoy the best of natural Asturias without leaving the city. And if you are looking for a more sophisticated environment, you have a variety of options for conferences and scientific meetings as well as corporate events.

Gijón combines two thousand years of experience in hospitality with its commitment to the future, constant transformation and avant-garde within Asturias. You can organize an event inside a clock or have dinner under the largest elliptical dome in Europe. You can enjoy a cocktail surrounded by sharks, participate in a cider-pouring contest or pick a conference hall located among trees (and squirrels).
What better framework to exchange ideas than a city that is committed to science, creativity and innovation? The Mile of Knowledge is an ecosystem of research in which 20,000 people with great talent come together every day. In less than 20 years, they have managed to generate 25% of all the R&D+i in Asturias and represent 6.95% of our regional GDP.
What better scenery than the one where activities can be carried out in a beautiful, surprising and protected natural environment? The green spaces of the city foster experiences in locations as original as the Atlantic Botanical Garden (with centenarian forests inside) or the Muséu del Pueblu d'Asturies, in a wide wooded meadow surrounded by traditional rural constructions (“hórreos”, granaries, a bowling alley,...).
Gijón brings its values to meetings: innovation and strong traditions, positive energy, the wisdom of who maintains an open, joyful, and creative lifestyle. Without forgetting its commitment. Gijón has renewed the Biosphere World Urban Destination certification, awarded by the Institute of Responsible Tourism, associated with UNESCO and the World Tourism Organization. It recognizes the care for the natural environment, the protection of historical heritage and local traditions, as well as the pursuit of quality of life and advances in accessibility.
A welcoming city, with human dimensions, and with sufficient infrastructures and services to make your event a success. Quality and competitiveness are combined here.
