How to get there:
Las Palmas de Gran Canaria:
Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is the most cosmopolitan city of the Canary Islands. It’s also one of the cities with the best weather worldwide thanks to its excellent location—near the Tropic of Cancer—and the trade winds blowing in from the North Atlantic. The average temperature in winter is 17° (62.6 Fahrenheit) and 25° (72 Fahrenheit) in summer. It’s a modern city with amazing monuments and a wide variety of hotels on offer. Its 400,000 inhabitants make it the most economically and culturally dynamic city of the Canary Islands. For centuries it has been an important cultural and business hub between Europe, Africa and America.
This international focus makes Las Palmas the perfect place for national and international gatherings. Its long trading tradition gives the island a special business appeal that is easily noticeable above all in its streets and modern shopping centres. Low taxes in the Canary Islands allow buyers to acquire products at prices that are 15–30% cheaper than on the continent.
The variety of culture and entertainment includes the possibility of going to museums, exhibitions, conferences, theatres and concerts all year round. This is even more of an incentive to organise an event in the city, since it is guaranteed to be a success. They include the Festival de Música de Canarias (Gran Canarias Music Festival,) the Festival de Ópera (Opera Festival,) the Festival de Zarzuela (Zarzuela Festival,) TEMUDAS Fest (theatre, music and dance) or the Festival Internacional de Jazz (International Jazz Festival,) and a regular music programme in the Auditorio Alfredo Kraus and Teatro Pérez Galdós.
