The Consortium for Tourism in the Baix Llobregat was created in 2000 as a coordinating body to manage local tourism, bringing together, on the one hand the firm resolve of the regional councils and on the other, the support from other administrations and business associations, given the area’s potential in this sphere.
Hence, the principal objective of this body is to contribute, through the development of tourism in the local area, to the economic growth of the Baix Llobregat, to productive diversity, job creation and on the whole to the generation of wealth and well-being in the territory. A development that is sustainable and flexible and that should promote the existing natural, cultural and heritage resources.
In this sense, the role of the Consortium centres around three main pillars:
• The creation and development of new tourist products, for example meeting tourisme, cultural tourism linked to Modernisme; special events and gastronomy; leisure and nature tourism; industrial tourism and beach tourism, with an aim to maximising the profitability of this economic activity whilst avoiding its seasonal nature.
• The endorsement and dissemination of the region as an attractive tourist destination in order to achieve an optimum market positioning and thus increase the tourist and commercial demand in the Baix Llobregat.
• The endorsement and support of businesses so as to increase the generation of occupation and to achieve an offer of services that is competitive compared to the existing tourism market.
Without doubt, the Consortium represents a great opportunity to improve the quality of tourism in the region, to help people that are interested in promoting this activity and, in short, to rediscover the Baix Llobregat, a region that is full of life and surprises, that is certainly well worth visiting.
