Santa Eulària Empresarial is a non-profit association comprised of businesses and professionals from the tourism sector. Its purpose is to steward the touristic product linked to the municipality of Santa Eulària des Riu.
The association arose out of an earlier project (Estación Náutica Santa Eulalia Ibiza, established in 2007) in order to create a more inclusive association in which all companies offering a touristic product and/or service could find their interests represented.
Our formula is based on public-private collaboration. We feel it is essential that public administrations and the private sector work hand in hand to promote our area’s touristic offer and appeal in a coordinated, comprehensive way, while not overlooking the specific contributions of its multiple businesses.
We currently have over eighty member companies that span the municipality’s touristic offer, covering the spectrum from providers of accommodation, purveyors of nautical activities, restaurants, active tourism endeavors, and much more.Throughout the year, we organize numerous events designed to promote and dynamize the Santa Eulària municipality in general and our members in particular.
Every year, toward the end of the tourist season, and in collaboration with the Santa Eulària town hall, we organize the Foro Turismo Ibiza. The objective of this event is to bring together diverse operatives from the island’s tourism sector in order to present relevant topics and create a platform that enables us to share experiences and opinions as well as identify tendencies, thus allowing us to make strategic decisions. At the last gathering of the Foro Turismo Ibiza, we dealt with the need to identify and adapt to the new needs and expectations of what is now called digital tourism. We hosted collaborators of international renown such as Mr. Antonio Santos, General Coordinator of the World Network of Retail Tourism and Mr. Kike Sarasola, the President of Room Mate Hotels.
The association provides assistance to our member companies in different ways, for example, the representation and pre-selection of personnel in the Santa Eulària s’en Ocupa event, organized by the Santa Eulària town hall, as well as advice and guidance in the realm of paperwork and procedures, always with the aim of improving business performance. Working in close collaboration with the Santa Eulària town hall, Santa Eulària Empresarial attends the main tourism fairs within the European panorama. We assist the town hall in the maintenance and management of the municipality’s tourism website www.visitsantaeulalia.com and with the management of its social media networks.
We also collaborate in the publishing of promotional materials for the municipality, in the organization of press and blog trips that enable the specialized media to discover the municipality first hand and explore its possibilities, as well as in numerous promotional campaigns and municipal actions, undertaken at both the national and international level.
The association participates in, collaborates with or directly promotes numerous events aimed at dynamizing the hospitality and retail sectors. Examples of such events are Gastrojueves, Fira des Gerret, Fira d’estocs, Dia de la Terra, Dia del Turista as well as other cultural and sporting events such as the Ibiza Marathon, the Barruguet Festival of Family Theatre, guided walks, etc.
Santa Eulària Empresarial oversees the Family Tourism Seal developed by the consistory Family Moments, whose purpose is to bolster the municipality’s standing as a family destination par excellence on the island of Ibiza.
We are business people. We invest in our town. Together we go far.
Our work is focused on making Fomento del Turismo de Ibiza an increasingly open forum for debate that draws together a wide range of interests, agrees strategies and stimulates professionals, workers, companies and organisations from all the island's economic and social spheres to benefit from membership.
We want Fomento de Ibiza to be an open forum for debate, one that agglutinates common interests, reaches a consensus as to the strategies that should be followed, and encourages professionals, workers, companies and entities from all the island’s economic and social walks of life to work together
Fomento del Turismo de la Isla de Ibiza (Island of Ibiza Tourism Development) is an association founded by a group of forward-looking people who set themselves the task of stimulating, promoting and developing the island's budding tourist industry.
