Benidorm

Come and witness the rebirth of a destination! The big brands - including many car manufacturers - have started the MICE revolution in Benidorm, and we are excited to be a part of it. Benidorm has 17,000 hotel beds in 4- and 5-star hotels, as well as high-quality restaurants and premium services of all kinds. It also boasts the Sierra Helada natural park - perfect for hiking, golf courses, water sports, sailing, scuba diving and many more adventure sports.


Our Host Venues

The Forum will be hosted across three hotels that exemplify the grand luxury of the Costa Blanca.

Asia Gardens Hotel & Thai Spa

This exclusive hotel with all the serenity, peace and quiet of South-East Asia is a member of Leading Hotels of the World. With its lush tropical gardens, 7 spectacular swimming pools, choice of 9 exclusives restaurants and versatile meeting space, it's easy to see why.
