Venue

International Trade Fair and Conference Centre, Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
Avda. de La Constitución 12,
38005 Santa Cruz de Tenerife

Photo Conference Center

The building was inaugurated in 1996 and designed by the renowned Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava to house Tenerife's International Trade Fair and Conference Centre, which is located in the capital city, near the auditorium by the same architect. Covering a surface area of 40,000 m2 (9.9 acres), the building stands out not only for its original aesthetics made of concrete, glass and iron and its 270 m (885 ft) façade, but also because of its unique central nave. This completely open space spanning 12,000 m2 (3 acres) creates a multi-function hall the size of two football stadiums, which is used to host all kinds of events and activities.

Santa Cruz de Tenerife

The Island's capital is a cosmopolitan and fascinating city. With places such as the García Sanabria Park, emblematic buildings like the Tenerife Adán Martín Auditorium or the Tenerife Arts Venue, the city is full of sights and even the simplest things seem magical here. A dose of retail therapy on its buzzing shopping streets followed by a leisurely drink on a sun-bathed terrace is a perfect example of these simple pleasures.

About Tenerife

A truly amazing Island thanks to its diversity, weather and authenticity... Discover Tenerife's colours, flavours, sunshine and volcanic essence. A place with its own exclusive charm.

Tenerife is the largest of the Canary Islands and the only one to have two international airports, which mean that it is no more than between two and four hours flying time from the Spanish mainland and the rest of Europe.

Tenerife has the most authentic carnival; it has the highest peak in Spain – the breathtaking Mount Teide, of 3,718 metres (12,200 ft)-; and the annual average temperature is 22 degrees. That is why, December and August are closer here than anywhere else.

Climatology

Tenerife's climate is renowned for its mild summers and relatively warm winters, as well as the constant presence of the sun pretty much all year round. With temperatures ranging from lows of 17 ºC (62 ºF) in winter and highs of 25 ºC (77 ºF) in the hotter months, the atmosphere is cooled by the sea breeze and the trade winds. Moreover, the Island's unique orography gives rise to varying weather conditions in different areas, to the point that you could find yourself playing in the snow on El Teide's slopes in the morning and sunbathing or swimming on the south coast in the afternoon.

Gastronony

The Island's varied climate and landscapes have their effect on its exquisite gastronomy. Its cuisine is simple yet delicious, made using the products yielded by the land. It is rich in fruit, much of which is tropical, vegetables, with varieties that seem particularly exotic to visitors, fresh fish, meat and potatoes. These potatoes are meant to be sampled with the Canary Islands' most international sauce: mojo (which can be red or green or seasoned with paprika, black pepper or the local variety of red peppers).

Metropolitan Area

The Metropolitan Area is the heart of Tenerife's bustling life. Together, Santa Cruz and La Laguna (UNESCO World Heritage Site) provide many of the cultural, shopping and leisure options you will find on the Island, as well as boasting a wealth of historic and architectural heritage, museums, large parks and squares. Tradition and modernity merge in Tenerife's two largest cities, which are perfectly connected. They also have beautiful natural landscapes and their own beaches.
