Gran Canaria, the island that is said to be a mini-continent, with different climate and vegetation zones, that you can circle in a day’s tour.

The island’s capital Las Palmas sports a distinctive green streak flowing through both business and lifestyle: The perfect backdrop for a conference on sustainable business development.
You may have heard of Playa de las Canteras, ranking one of the top-3 city beaches in the world. Enjoy the 3km (!) boardwalk or dive in to explore its coral reef and fantastic underwater worlds. Along the beach, you’ll find water sports galore, various surf schools and countless cafés with a sea view.

Las Palmas is lavish in history and offers a zest for life along with wondrous nooks and crannies, like the street that was roped off for a couple of weeks because Brad Pitt chose it as a setting for his Alias movie.

ICSE Las Palmas

The Instituto Canario Superior de Estudios offers everything we could have wished for in a venue, and we are positively honored to work with them.

Just a few steps from the beach, surrounded by an abundance of coffee places and shopping opportunities: The ICSE’s location is perfect for sun-hungry word nerds ready to dive deep into CPD and then hang out on Playa De Las Canteras.
The ICSE’s inner beauties include an ultra-modern setting with WiFi, tech perks, and a cafeteria open just for us, all set in a relaxed and laid-back atmosphere.

Take a look!
You’ll find images and videos on the ICSE’s website and Facebook page.

An evening of delicious food and general merriment in a breathtaking setting:
The private rooftop bar of the Bed and Chic has it all.

Meraki: Gorgeous food to fight the post-conference blues

Ideally situated between Playa de las Canteras and our other venues, this petite and highly addicting café-restaurant will win your heart on first sight.

Magda and her team are just the most beautiful people inside and out. They fashion amazing slow food creations and heavenly desserts.

To fight the post-conference blues and to introduce one more of my favorite Canarian eateries, I’m delighted to welcome you to Meraki for a shared lunch, a cup of coffee, and a walk to a couple of the quarter’s prettiest historic sights after.

Check Meraki’s Facebook page for more information and mouthwatering pictures.
