Meeting in Sicily is more than just participating in an event. It is about restoring your energy and stimulating your senses in a land where variety is its wealth. Events in Sicily have their own character, they are unique and unrepeatable. Sicilian hospitality, together with the ingrained inventiveness and the renowned competence and professionalism of its congress operators will make the difference between a normal meeting and an unforgettable experience.

Do you want to be overwhelmed by this explosion of pleasure? Sicily is the ideal destination for a memorable event or incentive even in the winter season. It is hard to find another place where, in the same day, you can spend the morning on the ski slopes on Mount Etna, and the afternoon at sea, navigating through the legendary “Faraglioni” (the lava stacks) of Acitrezza.

Why fly a long way when you have a corner of paradise just a two-hour flight from home? 4 international airports, connecting Sicily to all over the world, and more than 50 linked countries, make it easy to come to the country. A multipurpose congress centre with a plenary room with 1200 seats and over 100 hotels with meeting facilities that can host from 200 up to 900 delegates provide the right solution for everyone. There is also a professional supply chain (local dmcs, locations for events, suppliers from all the categories able to work internationally and with high standard) that helps you to make your business as perfect as possible.

Once decided for Sicily, there is a variety of activities that can be chosen – anything is possible, all you have to do is ask.

So “warm up your incentive at Mount Etna”!

The highest active volcano in Europe is the ideal setting for exciting incentive activities: off-road, soft air and quad on the slopes of Mount Etna – the spirit of adventure merges with pure adrenalin for a unique and unforgettable day. Or simply go trekking or skiing on the volcano. Those who are fond of golf, will find three large, modern and fully equipped courses at Mount Etna or at the sea. More golf courses will be opened soon.

You can also enjoy a day at the Alcantara Gorges and do rafting and canyoning: with their 25-metre high walls, the gorges are the background to an exciting day of sport and entertainment. What else can you do? For example, diving and fishing in the sea of Sicily with its crystal clear water, fascinating seabed and rich marine flora and fauna. If you are looking for a taste of luxury, then go on a Ferrari, yacht or charter excursion.

Allow yourself to be seduced by Sicilian gastronomy: its unique local traditions will captivate you in a timeless atmosphere. At the “Fun Cooking” you can learn how to cook using traditional Sicilian cuisine, collaborating with colleagues as if in a real restaurant kitchen. Sicily is also well-known for its great wines: Convince yourself of it at a wine tasting, visit the cellars and savour the flavours of the local produce.

These are just a few examples of what can be done in Sicily. The Convention Bureau’s partners also are great organizers and have many ideas for your events and incentives. In the next weeks, we will introduce some of them and their ideas to you.
