Today, we would like to start presenting the co-sponsors of this year’s tmf-connect networking event at ibtm in Barcelona. Let’s begin by welcoming Sicily Convention Bureau, who is participating for the first time at our event taking place on Tuesday, 17 November.

Sicily is a destination worth-considering for your future meetings, events and incentives – due to many reasons. It is the easy accessibility which makes Sicily a perfect choice: four international airports connect Sicily to all over the world. You can find these airports in Catania (Bellini), Palermo (Punta Raisi), Trapani (Vincenzo Florio) and Comiso (Vincenzo Magliocco/Pio La Torre). Flight times are short: from Rome for example it is just a 50 minutes flight to Sicily and from Milan 1 hour and 20 minutes. Munich is only a 1 hour and 50 minutes flight away and it takes 3 hours to reach Sicily from London. There is also the possibility to travel by train. Once you have arrived in Sicily, staying is easy as there is a great number of hotels: 528 three-star-hotels, 383 four-star-hotels and 38 five-star-hotels.

The number and variety of meeting facilities are also amazing: there are 201 meeting hotels, 32 congress and conference centres, 5 fair grounds and much more. For instance, you can find a multipurpose congress centre with a plenary room with 1200 seats.

A professional supply chain on site makes the organization of your events quite easy. You are in good hands with 189 DMCs, PCOs and tour operators, 115 catering service providers, 206 transfer service providers and many more.

You would like to organize an incentive in winter? Sicily is the right place – if you just take into consideration the fact that the weather is really warm and goes up to 25 degrees in the winter months. In the next couple of weeks you will learn more about winter incentives in Sicily on the tmf-dialogue newsroom.

Working together with Sicily Convention Bureau has many advantages: you’re getting immediate access to all of the island’s novelties, hidden corners and of course, best offers. All services are free-of-charge for you! SCB supports you in many ways: the team makes suggestions on the best hotels and venues, gives you ideas for social programmes, assists you in organizing site inspection visits and much more.
