Girona Costa Brava, Spain

3-6 October 2019

The only networking event for MICE professionals on two wheels, Tour de MICE is back to take the Costa Brava by storm.

Our research shows that the most meaningful business connections are made through shared experiences and enthusiasm, attracting senior, high-spending buyers who no longer want to attend traditional trade shows. This intimate event gives you 25 pre-selected meetings with these high-level European buyers who have both spending power and pedal power, and the chance to bond while sharing this once-in-a-lifetime activity.

M&I Experiences give you the same ROI as a standard Forum, yet allow you to indulge your hobbies and improve your fitness and wellbeing. Tour de MICE caters for riders of all abilities, so no one is left out. This is next-generation networking - and we want you to be part of it.

Girona Costa Brava

In the Costa Brava, cycling is everywhere. The region is host to a large community of professional cyclists who use this city as their training base. Thanks to the large variety of routes in the region, its extraordinary climate and the excellent range of complementary services, Costa Brava is a paradise for professional cyclists.

We will tour this beautiful region of Spain together with some of Europe's most sought-after buyers. From dramatic landscapes to quaint villages, breathtaking beaches to winding coastal roads, there are hundreds of kilometres of routes and roads ideal for novice cyclists and for the competitive cyclist, all in complete safety.

Leisure, Beginner or Epic

Each night we will be hosted in a different MICE hotel en route, where we will eat, rest and socialise together. The mornings are for 1-2-1 targeted meetings with your fellow riders - the most sought-after MICE professionals in Europe.

Starting in the 'deep south' on the beaches of the Costa Brava at Lloret de Mar, the route proceeds north to S'Agaro and Platja D'Aro, with the coastal mountains of Les Gavarres on one side and the shimmering Mediterranean on the other. Then it's on to the lush, historic village region of Baixa Emporda to arrive at the deluxe destination resort of Hotel Camiral & PGA Catalunya, on the doorstep of medieval Girona. This is one of the most successful cycling tourism hubs of Europe, and home to a number of professional teams.

Leisure

Leisure riders can select either hybrids or e-bikes, and will ride on a mix of roads and 'vias verdes' - an extensive network of XC trails - for a culturally-rich, MICE-relevant and socially-inclusive experience.
