Mrs. Inés Martín Jiménez

Third Vice President and Minister of Government Tourism Council of Gran Canaria
President of the Tourist Board of Gran Canaria

Gran Canaria has always welcomed numerous visitors from everywhere in the world.

Our climate, considered as the best in the world, the hospitality and kindness of our people, our first-class hotel offer and our wonderful beaches have been determining factors in winning more and more visitors from other countries.

Now, the island offers not only sun and golden-sandy beaches. For the last few years, Gran Canaria has been developed as a European cultural and professional meeting point.

Now, beyond all doubt, our island is an essential alternative when holding congresses, international conferences or seminars of any kind.

We have focused on the quality of the service sector and have improved even more an offer that has always been attractive.

The Canary Islands Convention Center – Auditorio Alfredo Kraus, located by Las Canteras beach, and the Gran Canaria Convention Center, located in the Canary Islands Trade Fair (INFECAR) are an outstanding part of the infrastructure oriented to satisfy our visitors, as well as to provide them with all the necessary equipment to carry out any kind of activity. This entire service offer has been compiled in this web site of Gran Canaria.

Although work is important, we think that leisure and cultural activities are necessary to make your visit a complete and worthwhile experience.

As President of the Tourist Board of Gran Canaria, I welcome and invite you to integrate with our people, move around the island, enjoy our gastronomy, as well as our rich folklore and cultural life, and our leisure proposal, which is one of the best in Spain.

I am sure that our island and its inhabitants will not disappoint you.
