The increase in congress activity at the Gran Canaria Conference Centre confirms the improvement of the sector

The first half of 2022 at the Infecar Gran Canaria Conference Centre has been marked by the recovery of activity to numbers similar to those before the pandemic.

In this regard, some of the highlights between January and March 2022 were the holding of the Phase 1 tests of the Air Traffic Control call in Gran Canaria; the celebration of the 14th edition of the Congress of Socialist Youth of the Canary Islands; or the forum ‘Digital creativity: invent your future’, a project created to encourage all young people registered in the National Youth Guarantee System to discover new employment and training opportunities that they can access.

We also hosted the symbolic act of the beginning of the Salto de Chira works; the celebration of the convention of the Gran Canaria Canary Coalition, with the attendance of Fernando Clavijo and Pablo Rodríguez; the commemoration of World Down Syndrome Day, with a wide range of leisure activities, and a Legal Training Seminar.

As far as the Bandama Hall of the Conference Centre is concerned, during this period we hosted a Workshop on Marketing and Sponsorship, organised by the Department of Tourism of the Cabildo de Gran Canaria; the inaugural lecture by Ken Webster, on the start of the University Expert Degree in Circular Economy; the Meeting on the application of Law 20/2021 of 28 December on urgent measures to reduce the temporary nature of public employment; and the conference on Green Employment Opportunities for young people in the Canary Islands.

Between April and June, our premises witnessed the celebration of the Nueva Canarias Congress; a Scientific Conference on International Nurses’ Day (DIE), with the aim of vindicating the vital role played by nursing care in improving the health of the population; the traditional 11th Parade of Angels of the Canary Islands Breast and Gynaecological Cancer Association, organised every year by this association, in collaboration with the Spanish Cancer Patients’ Group; or the commemoration with all the Canary Islands’ nurses of the International Day of the Nurse (DIE), with the aim of vindicating the vital role played by nursing care in improving the health of the population; or the commemoration with all the young people of Gran Canaria of the fourth edition of the Island Youth Fair #Rumbo and Youth Forum #TAGOROROR, a space where they met with information stands, talks, workshops, thematic and leisure spaces, among many other informative, cultural and social activities.

In the Bandama Hall we experienced a new edition of the Youth with a Future Forum, this time under the theme ‘Gaming & eSports your professional life’, organised by the Society for the Economic Promotion of Gran Canaria (SPEGC), with the support of the Incyde Foundation.

LPA Motown also returned to Infecar after a two-year hiatus due to the health crisis caused by Covid-19. With more than 50 exhibitors, this event once again promoted the commercial activity of companies linked to the two-wheeler sector, promoted new products and favoured the social projection of groups, associations and fan clubs, with more than 90 activities for all audiences.
The month of June was marked by the celebration of different academic lectures, which put the finishing touch to a year of studies. In this sense, the Sala Canarias witnessed the closing of the academic year for the Colegio Norte, the IES Los Tarahales, the Colegio Marpe and the IES Siete Palmas.

In addition, this same venue was chosen by the Cabildo de Gran Canaria for a Fire Prevention and Extinction Day, in which more than a hundred members of the brigades and forest patrols of the Department of the Environment of the Cabildo de Gran Canaria attended the event.

Likewise, the recently-launched political party ‘Hablemos Ahora’ (Let’s Talk Now) held its first island congress at our venue, where José Francisco Pérez López was unanimously elected as the party’s president.

The conference Rethinking the Administration in the face of old problems and new challenges. The response from the Cabildo de Gran Canaria took place this month in the Bandama Hall, which was attended by public managers and public employees in general.

Finally, the taxi sector once again placed its trust in the Gran Canaria Conference Centre to hold its annual assemblies. Thus, this month we hosted the Assembly of the San Cristóbal Taxi Cooperative and the Assembly of the Las Palmas Taxi Cooperative.

The Gran Canaria Conference Centre will continue to work over the next six months of 2022 to meet the needs of the Canary Islands’ social and business fabric which, year after year, continues to place its trust in our venue.
