We are thrilled to announce that 2020, probably one of the most awful years we have ever seen, will be over in less than 10 days, as we are heading to Christmas (a Merry Christmas 2020).
This year the tourism industry all over the world has been through challenging times, with borders, hotels, restaurants, museums and shops closed. Having no tourists means no source of income for the millions of people that make up the travel trade industry.
We have worked very hard to carry on our normal blog activity, being very conscious that reading other news and information that are not related to the current scenario we live in is actually helpful, distracting and maintains a feeling of “almost normal”.
This year we have written about virtual visits to Andalusian monuments, Spanish museums, conflict resolutions as part of business meetings, wine tourism in Andalusia, events at Caminito del Rey, MICE opportunities in some lesser-known Andalusian destinations, and many more topics.
But also we have talked about some other topics, that you might have missed (and we will kindly remind you!):
- How to get to Andalusia – easier than ever, thanks to our international airports
- Birdwatching in Andalusia – the best locations for bird enthusiasts!
- Long-term growth strategy for Meridional Events – good news, at last!
- WTM London 2020 and Meridional Events: the outcome – or how a fully virtual trade show was, in fact, a good idea
- New MICE season 2020/2021 – and all the new stuff we planned!
- The best weather in Europe for your corporate event – is in Andalusia, where else?
- Events and Corporate Social Responsibility – or how to incorporate CSR in a meaningful way
- Andalusian Culture and Traditions – Horses – learn it all about the Pure Spanish Horse
- New challenge for the tourism industry – and how we planned to face it
- MICE tourism in the Costa del Sol – or why Costa del Sol is the ideal location for corporate events
- Welcome, 2020! – if only we had known!
These are all a nice read if you feel like having a rest from Christmas or New Year celebrations, we are sure you’ll love them as much as we have loved writing about them.
From our side, there is not much more to say. It has been a pleasure to be by your side throughout 2020, with all its challenges and uncertain moments.
We would like to wish all our clients (past, future and potential), suppliers, friends and industry peers, the Merriest Christmas and Happiest New Year ever. These holidays we will toast for you all.
Bring it on, 2021! We are looking forward to welcoming you (no pressure!).
