Make your car event a success in the Costa del Sol
If you’re planning a car event, our first and most important piece of advice is to take particular care when choosing your location. There are a number of hotels in the province of Malaga that have experience in hosting car events, in particular Hotel Don Carlos, Anantara Villa Padierna Palace, The Westin La Quinta, Finca Cortesín and Kempinski Hotel Bahía. Others, like Nobu Hotel Marbella and Alanda Marbella Hotel, have seen the eyes of the world turn to them for the launch of Renault’s latest electric vehicles. Puente Romano, the Roman bridge, was also chosen for a McLaren launch.
Gran Hotel Miramar deserves a special mention as it has been chosen as an events venue by important brands. Volkswagen hosted a convention here in June. The hotel also hosted the closing lunch for participants in Rallystory Algarve Andalousie 2022, a high-range sports car rally. The historic building, complete with five restaurants, large grounds and no fewer than ten event rooms, is one of the leading MICE destinations in the province.
On the other hand, Hotel Marbella Club hosted the presentation of the Bentley Continental GT. Journalists and influencers from around the world attended the event, which featured a welcome dinner at three Michelin star chef Dani García’s restaurant.
Last but by no means least there are other venues which can be transformed to host your car event. Examples include Museo Automovilístico y de la Moda in Malaga, which has been chosen by BMW and Mercedes Benz; Reservatauro in Ronda, which hosted a Porsche event; and LA Organic, also in Ronda, which held presentations for Ferrari and Lexus. Malaga and Marbella conference centres have also held important presentations for KIA and Audi.
