DURING the early part of this week, the Costa Blanca Tourism Board of Alicante has been exhibiting at the World Travel Market Fair in London.
Representatives from many of the local municipalities were there, including Torrevieja and Orihuela, helping the Alicante province fly the flag for some of the more popular tourist destinations.
Torrevieja Councillor Fanny Serrano travelled to represent the municipality and said that she had attended a number of meetings with professionals during the fair that had showed a great deal of interest in what Torrevieja had to offer.
The organisers of the fair put their own website at the disposal of interested parties to upload their own promotional material and to establish a network of contacts. She said that while nothing connected directly with Torrevieja was distributed to visitors to the stand, many face-to-face chats took place by the team.
Before the fair got underway, Serrano said: “Torrevieja will show its capacity as a city of services that also offers tourism opportunities 365 days a year thanks to its sun, its beaches, its nature reserves and those that wish to take part in a variety of water sports. We will be looking to exploit more possibilities to make Torrevieja a destination for the sports tourist and well as being close to eight golf courses.”
