The Department for Tourism attends this week the CMT Stuttgart fair, which with 250,000 visitors is the tourism event that attracts the largest volume of public in Germany.
It is the second time that Calp attends this fair, specializing in camping and caravans aimed at the general public, after checking the success of participation and the interest aroused by German visitors last year. On this occasion the Department for Tourism will be accompanied by five companies from Calp: the real estates Jetvillas and Interhome and the hotels RH, AR Unitursa and Sol y Mar.
Attracting German tourists to the town of the rock is one of the priorities of the Department for Tourism, since it is a traditional market that has been neglected in recent decades. We must remember that although the German community is the second largest among foreigners living in the town, the German tourists who visit Calp each year do not exceed the 2% of the total amount.
According to the councillor for Tourism, Jan Van Parijs, the fair in Stuttgart is a "great opportunity for Calp" because it takes place when the German tourists, who are characterized by being farsighted and normally prepare their holidays in advance, still do not have decided where to book. In this fair the Department for Tourism will promote Calp as a destination as well as its complementary and camping offer.
In addition to Stuttgart, Calp plans to attend another two fairs in Germany this year, Munich, which will take place from the 22nd to the 25th February, and Berlin, from the 7th to the 11th March.
On the other hand, the town will also be present at the International Tourism Fair of Madrid (Fitur), which starts on Wednesday, as well as at the Salon de Vacances in Brussels.
