• The City

Tarragona, located in the north-eastern corner of the Iberian Peninsula, is Catalonia’s southernmost capital city. Thanks to its temperate climate, with an average yearly temperature of 23ºC, its clean, sweeping beaches and its singular artistic and architectural patrimony, officially declared a “World Heritage Site” by the UNESCO, Tarragona is one of the most important tourism hubs in Europe.

• How to get there:

Well-connected to Europe and the rest of the peninsula, it offers easy access to two airports, Reus, just 7 km away, and Barcelona, 82 km away. Two daily regular shuttle flights connect Reus and Madrid. Barcelona offers national, international and transatlantic flights, both regular and charter. It can be reached by taking AP-7 and A-16 motorways, by train or by bus.

• Surroundings:

Surroundings of Tarragona are well known for their extremely fine, golden sand: hence the region’s name, “Costa Daurada”, or the Golden Coast. The sand is soft and smooth and gives easily under the weight of those lying out in the sun on just a towel to ensure that it does not stick to their skin.

• Venue:

The Tarragona Trade-Fair and Congress Centre is in the centre of the city. Its location offers easy access from the railway station, the Port passenger terminal and the Rambla Nova, the main trade street of the city. Moreover, the venue is close to the different hotels of the city.
