Mont-roig includes a convention center in the Sustainability Program plans
Mont-roig del Camp will have a convention center. This new equipment has been included in the eleven plans of the Tourism Sustainability Plans Program (PSTD) that the City Council announced at the end of June. Thus, with the convention center, the proposals included become a dozen.
The center is budgeted at 650,000 euros which, like the rest of the projects, is expected to be within the total 3.9 million euros of the program that will be financed in equal parts by the City Council, the State and the Generalitat. As explained by the councilor for tourism of Mont-roig, Yolanda Pérez, this new facility will be built inside the future Ecoespai building and its function will be to "attract small-format congresses, as well as be a space for transition and environmental companies ». Pérez assured that today "we are working on drawing up the plans."
Execution in three years
The twelve projects foreseen in the PSTD must be executed in the next three years. The councilor for tourism pointed out that "once we have signed the agreement, which we hope will be the end of this month, we will hire a management team that will be dedicated solely and exclusively to monitoring its execution." Now, Pérez explained, "we are drafting the bases to hire the management, whose cost amounts to 180,000 euros." Once the City Council has this service and "we can start working, we will start the bidding process."
From eleven proposals to twelve
The proposal presented by Mont-roig to improve the sustainability of the tourism offer in the municipality was the only one in Camp de Tarragona that was selected in the 2022 call for the ordinary edition of the Tourism Sustainability Plans Programme. Mont-roig then exhibited eleven proposals that now, with the convention center, have become twelve. Of the total 3.9 million euros to push the plan forward, 2.6 will be financed by the State and the Generalitat. Let us remember that the objective of this program is to promote the transformation of tourist destinations towards a model based on environmental, socioeconomic and territorial sustainability, as well as to support the development of resilience strategies in the face of the new challenges facing the tourism sector.
