RReus, hometown of Gaudí, offers tourism enterprises a strategic location in the heart of the Costa Dorada, from which to access a market of 4.7 million tourists a year.
Reus hosts 20% of the approximately 500,000 Russian tourists who visit the Costa Dorada every year. Moreover, the Gaudí Centre, which receives more than 80,000 visitors a year, has become a point of reference for interpreting modernist architecture.
The city offers a favorable environment for new travel agencies, wholesalers, retailers and tour operators through the Tecnoparc building, strategically located mere minutes from the major tourist towns of Salou, Cambrils and Vila-seca and just three minutes from the airport and 15 from the high-speed railway station. Through this infrastructure, companies have access to all major telecommunications technologies, start-up assistance and growth potential.
The Tecnoparc is also home to firaReus, the city’s center for conventions and trade shows, which is a leader in business, congress and event tourism. Also, the Faculty of Tourism in the nearby Universitat Rovira i Virgili guarantees the presence of trained and qualified personnel.
Tour operators like Tez Tour, online booking companies like Esquiades.com and Buscounchollo.com, and some of the major hotel chains have already chosen this site as a place to locate their companies’ operational centers.
