The Catalan Tourism Board, Government of Catalonia, and the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO)
organize the World Sports Tourism Congress, which will take place in
Lloret de Mar on November 25 and 26, 2021.
Catalonia has been chosen to host this congress due to the region’s extensive sports tradition and its first-class infrastructures. The congress is part of the Year of Sports Tourism in Catalonia, whose main events had to be postponed until 2021 because of Covid. Additionally, the promotion and emphasis of the territory on sports tourism has led Catalonia to become one of the world’s leading sports destinations.
