The Costa Blanca Board and the Alicante Trade Fair Institution (IFA) have joined up to create a new international competition with exhibitors and visitors from all over the world. A competition which aims to raise awareness about the wide range of activities offered by the province’s coastline for leisure and the practice of all types of sports related to the sea.
This unique event was presented at FITUR last January, with the participation of the Vice-President and the Tourism Councillor, Eduardo Dolón, the Director General for Tourism, Raquel Huete, and the chairman of the IFA, José Luis Gisbert.
In the words of Eduardo Dolón: “This fair will be used to show the world the importance of the Costa Blanca as a yachting destination 365 days a year, but also to show the citizens of the province the infinite possibilities that the sea offers them and encourage them to take part in this type of water sports”.
Diving, apnea, snorkeling, scuba diving, surfing, wind surfing, kite surfing, paddle surfing or kayaking are some of the water sports that will be promoted to encourage the general public to take part.
