Open to the Cantabrian Sea, the largest city of the Principality offers, with a medium size, the same quality and variety of spaces, technical and professional resources as a large capital, without losing its human dimensions.
Gijón/Xixón is a city committed to sustainability. It is accredited by Biosphere Gold Destination and its two convention centers have been recognized, together with the Convention Bureau, by various sustainability programs.
Gijón/Xixón has amazing, original and, above all, authentic spaces.
Laboral City of Culture, winner of the Eventoplus Award for best event space 2019, opens its 130,000 m2 to arts, technology and events. You will have 7,500 m2 of an impressive courtyard, with a room that offers the technical endowment of a theater of the last generation; you will have more intimate unique spaces, with character, that help make the events unique. Companies such as Tyssenkrup Elevador, Acuña and Bombona or Grupo Vocento chose it for their corporate events.
Can you imagine a congress hall between trees (and squirrels)? A palace of 160, 000 m2? With simple architecture, the Gijón/Xixon Congress Palace is different: because of the landscaped spaces that surround it; by the light that defines their spaces; for its flexibility and the options offered by the fact that it is located just 700 m. from the main beach of the city and surrounded by hotels, which facilitates the travel on foot.
In Gijón/Xixón the largest number of sores in the region is concentrated, with production exceeding 15 million liters. Some open up to the world of events. Thus, you can find a llagar governed today by the fourth generation of the family, an old converted railway tunnel or the largest llagar of Asturias, with capacity for 1,000 people.
You can live the experience of cider culture or discover the traditional Asturian spicha: a 100% pure networking event that the Asturians created before that word was incorporated into our vocabulary. You can also organize a unique team building activity: the escanciator contest.
Amazing natural spaces without leaving Gijón/Xixón
The city offers you experiences in natural environment, without multiplying the travel time. The Aquarium allows you to organize a dinner or cocktail "under the sea" after a small meeting in your auditorium, with the central tank as a backdrop. In the Muséu Etnográficu del Pueblu d'Asturies you have a meadow surrounded by hórreos and paneras, ideal for team building sessions...
Here the sea is ubiquitous. Model the city and allow you to organize any nautical activity for your guests. Why not a surf baptism on San Lorenzo Beach?
In addition, Gijón/Xixón is the perfect point to discover all of Asturias. A stone's throw away, a unique heritage and an almost unspoilt nature awaits you: Biosphere reserves, protected spaces, pre-Romanesque art and rockwork (both World Heritage Sites), the seafaring peoples, the Niemeyer Center...
A renovated hotel floor with offer for meetings and events
What's new and openings you may not know came to enrich and complete the offer of accommodation and meeting rooms in hotels:
- Hotel Artiem Asturias, a hotel with a club soul, very close to the center of Gijón/Xixón. An unsuspended alternative for business meetings in a five-star setting in a rural setting.
- Hotel Oca Palacio de La Llorea, also close to the center, located in nature and surrounded by a professional golf course.
- The M'dene Hotel, a beautiful modernist building, rehabilitated with care and converted into a boutique hotel in the city centre, close to the marina.
All this, not forgetting the attractiveness and uniqueness of the terraces open to the sea of Abba Playa or the NH Gijón or the classic elegance of the historic Hernán Cortes, right in the heart of the city.
In Gijón/Xixón you will find a balanced proportion of authenticity, tradition and innovation. Because the city, with its Knowledge Mile as its emblem, is the Asturian capital of innovation.
If you need more information, we offer you a Convention Bureau with more than 25 years of experience. A team that is passionate about their work, who understands the importance it has for you that the event goes round. You can count on its rigor and impartiality when it comes to monetizing your time, helping you plan, provide inspiration, invest in your meeting and provide solutions and connect with the best suppliers.
