Conferences and Congresses in San Sebastian
San Sebastian is one of the most popular congress and convention destinations in Spain, not only because of its location by the sea and the excellent gastronomy, factors that enhance and make each event unique. The congress and conference facilities are also outstanding and some of them can be found in the middle of the city. The Kursaal, next to the Zurriola beach, offers enough space for large and medium-sized congresses and events. Many hotels also offer ideal spaces for small-sized events.
San Sebastian offers a majestic elegance
The town centre streets of San Sebastian unfold overlooking the La Concha Bay. Monte Igeldo marks one end of it – a wonderful vantage point for enjoying views over the city. At its feet is Torrepea Point, where the “Peine de los Vientos” („the Wind Comb“), a sculpture by the famous Basque artist Eduardo Chillida, is installed. Here Ondarreta beach begins, framed by a garden area and by the Pico del Loro. This was the place chosen by Queen Maria Cristina (18th C.) to build the Miramar Palace, her summer residence.
Gastronomy in San Sebastian
There is probably no other city in the world where gastronomy plays such a huge role in culture and in every days life. San Sebastian holds the world record for Michelin stars per inhabitant, but also the pintxos, these culinary miniature masterpieces in all the bars in the old town make every gourmet’s heart beat faster. Immerse yourself in the Mecca of gastronomy and let yourself be seduced by the city’s culinary delights, your palate will be grateful you have made your way to this gastronomic destination.
The Old part of San Sebastian
The oldest part of San Sebastian has so much to offer. Besides the churches, an old Dominican convent is nowadays the San Telmo Museum, whose archaeological and ethnographic collections, together with its paintings, are worth a visit. The busy streets lead you to the Plaza de la Constitución, with its many balconies – numbered and painted white, betraying its origin as a bullring.
Festivals and festivities in San Sebastian
On the eastern side of the river are the modern districts of Eguía and Gros. On Gros Beach is the modern Kursaal structure, designed by the architect Rafael Moneo. San Sebastian is a cosmopolitan city with a strong Basque character, which is clear in its cultural events. The „Tamborrada“ or „Semana Grande“, with its fishing boat regatta, tells us something of the tradition; while its prestigious film and jazz festivals say a great deal about its international vocation. San Sebastian will of course welcome you any other day of the year as well.
Frequently asked questions
A DMC or Destination Management Company simply put is a travel agency. However, a DMC is the key piece when it comes to organizing your next corporate event or business trip. A DMC provides professional services for the planning and implementation of event programs. Thanks to its local anchoring, a DMC has an extensive knowledge of local suppliers, locations, etc. As such, it acts as an extension of your company and takes care of all sorts of things for you at a local level.
The extensive knowledge of the region, city or destination makes the DMC your expert on site. For example, a DMC is often able to give preferential rates based on its purchasing power and good relationship with local suppliers. As a local planner, a DMC knows perfectly well which suppliers offer the best service according to your budget. Moreover, it understands the cultural standards and expectations and also speaks the language. Its long-term contacts are the best tool against too expensive prices and unpleasant surprises. In addition, a DMC is by definition familiar with the city or region. They know the shortcuts and therefore work more efficiently than you would be able to.
A good DMC organizes your meeting or incentive from A to Z. They organize fun leisure activities, interesting excursions, rental of unique venues, selection of the best restaurants and hotels, arrange transfers, book meeting spaces, select guides and make a risk assessment and time frame. In short, they take care of all practical local worries. That will save you, as organizer of the event, incentive or other business travel, a lot of worries.
inbasque DMC was born out of love and passion for the Basque Country. The Basque Country, its people, the culture, traditions and nature are a unique place in our world and worth to be discovered, enjoyed and shared. Our goal is to share all those insights and secrets with you and make it possible for you to experience them firsthand. We design tailor-made programs according to your requirements, budget and intangible preferences. With our personalized attention we advise and help our clients in a fast, creative and efficient way, before, during and after their stay. Our excellent relationships with local suppliers such as hotels, restaurants, guides, venues, etc will save you time and money when it comes to selecting the best suppliers.
With excellent flight connections from all mayor European hubs, the first step to coming to the Basque Country is already assured. The Basque Country itself is a rather small destination with short transfer times between its cities and most interesting regions. A mix of beautiful hotels, unique venues, authentic activities and of course an outstanding cuisine makes the destination an ideal place to enjoy a truly hidden culture, a stunning nature, vibrant cities and the possibility to create a program totally versatile and according to your preferences. The Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, the Rioja wine region or the gastronomic capital San Sebastian are only a few reasons to arrange your next incentive or business trip in the Basque Country.

Dear Nicolas Thank you so much for such a wonderful week. The organisation was immaculate, the venues and guides outstanding, all was done with professionalism behind the scenes and having you along was an added bonus. Your knowledge and charm added hugely to everyone’s enjoyment of the food, wine and culture of the Basque region, a true Ambassador. Without exception, all the guests were singing your praises to the roof. I hope that we will have the opportunity to work together again soon. Sara and I are already thinking up some ideas to run by you, so more to come I hope. Best regards Martin On a personal note, it was a joy to work with another tour operator who remained unruffled and accommodating when dealing with all enquiries, requests, changes and idiosyncrasies, colds and coughs that come with the job, did every task promptly and without drama, and was a good dining, tasting and travelling companion to boot. Many, many thanks and here’s to the next time. Martin
