Without a doubt, one of the most beautiful places in the world. San Sebastian is a lovely locality with 180,000 inhabitants. Its size means that one can get around it with perfect ease on foot or by bicycle; and this enables business tourists to get the most out of their stay. The city looks out on spectacular La Concha Bay, and has three pretty beaches: Ondarreta, La Concha and Zurriola.

At the foot of the western end of the Pyrenees, on the shores of the Cantabrian Sea and just 20 kilometers from the French border, San Sebastian boasts a prime location on the European map.

Organizational experience, proven by events that draw an international crowd such as the International Film Festival and the Jazzaldia Music Festival, and a wide range of specific services, facilities and teams of people ready to assist the organizers of working events make San Sebastian a perfect destination for the visitor wishing to combine work with tourism.
