Asturias 120 Minutes from Paradise

#Traveltradetogether

Peter O’Hanlon (Travelbiz & Travelfinders Sales Director) spent 120 minutes in paradise as a guest of Graciela Blanco (Vice Chancellor of Tourism of the Principality of Asturias) and Ruben Lopez (Director of The Spanish Tourist Office in Ireland), who hosted Irish travel trade partners and media in the Hotel Rui Plaza, to celebrate the NEW direct flight from Dublin to Asturias.

Graciela Blanco (The Vice Chancellor of Tourism of the Principality of Asturias) and Ruben Lopez (Director of The Spanish Tourist Office in Ireland) spoke about this amazing destination presenting partners the opportunity to market and sell a region in the north west tip of Spain that brings you the opportunity to remember sensations that are often forgotten, such as the sense of calm as you walk through lush green valleys, walking through grass, the smell of the sea at sunrise or the cool air brushing against your cheeks as you enjoy the views from the stunning natural viewpoints.

And these are not the only sensations that await you: Asturian cuisine is popular in Spain due to its rich flavours; the region boasts examples of unique Pre-Romanesque art; and its cities have reinvented themselves through their culture and architecture, leaving behind their more industrial past.

Trade guests were also treated to fine wines and dishes prepared by Michelin starred chef, Jose Antonio Campoviejo. The entire experience was invaluable to suppliers and retail partners who have a special interest in Camino and active tourism in Spain and want to develop new experiential opportunities for their clients.
