Seville MICE experiences
Capital of the Andalusia region, Seville is one of the most charming cities of Spain, counting with more than 300 sunny days per year. The city is famous worldwide for its cultural, historical and artistic heritage. Indeed, it celebrates this year the 500th anniversary of the first circumnavigation of the Earth accomplished by Ferdinand Magellan and Juan Sebastian Elcano, who started from Seville. The city also offers countless places and monuments such as its Gothic Cathedral, the third biggest in the world, or the Real Alcázar Palace and its beautiful gardens.
One of the main advantages in Seville is that you can do many visits and activities on foot; no (public) transport needed although there is a very good public network of Metro, Tram, Bus, Train and bikes to get around as well.
Besides the large touristic attraction, Seville constitutes in itself a solid and well known MICE destination in Spain. Its airport with more than 150 direct connections shows the accessibility of the city, as it is experiencing a 30% increase in flights each year. To meet this high demand, Seville’s airport has invested 66 million euros in its renovation, which has already started.
