Gibraltar hosts joint tourism workshop

The Campo Mancomunidad in conjunction with the local tourist office yesterday hosted a cross-border tourism workshop at the John Mackintosh Hall for businessmen in the trade.

This was the first event of its kind on the Rock. The event also saw the attendance of a number of local tourist representatives and the travel trade.

The Gibraltar Tourist Board (GTB) also helped the Mancomunidad with all its arrangements.

At the workshop, the seven municipalities in the Campo – La Linea, Jimena, Algeciras, Los Barrios, Sam Roque, Castellar, and Tarifa, were represented. Each presented information on local travel and industry in their particular areas.

“The aim was for the Municipios to present their own tourist information in the hope of doing some business with the travel industry locally, and to inform the general public what tourism possibilities exist for them in the Campo area,” said Gibraltar Tourist Board Chief Executive Peter Canessa.

Mancommunidad Presdident Juan Monte de Oca visited the displays together with Gibraltar’s Tourism Minister Joe Holliday.
