2016 – Alicante – ¡Vamos!
The next 25, 26 and 27 September will be held in Alicante the XVII edition of FEDELE Annual Meeting with the collaboration of the Tourist Board of Costa Blanca, the City of Alicante and the Valencian Tourism Agency. This event is an action to promote Idiomatic Tourism in Spain that aims to promote the relations of federated Spanish schools with agencies and consultants specialized in language travel from around the world. This year’s edition will be celebrated with China as a special guest thanks to the collaboration of Turespaña in the invitation of agents from that country. The event also has the support of Instituto Cervantes and its presence in the different activities. From the 28th , the invited agencies will participate in one of the familiarization trips organized to Andalucía, the Balearic Islands, Madrid and the rest of the Comunidad Valenciana with the aim of being able to visit the Spanish schools and the cultural offer of these regions.
The event in Alicante is developed in workshop format with pre-established appointments between agencies and educators. In addition to these technical meetings, the program offers cultural and gastronomic events that allow participants to know the highlights of our offer in programs of cultural and linguistic immersion.
