ASTA Destination Expo 2016 - 1


BIENVENIDOS A SEVILLA Thank you for joining us in Seville for ASTA’s 2016 Destination Expo. ASTA is thrilled to welcome you to the vibrant city of Seville for this year’s Destination Expo. Together, we will experience all that this beautiful city and surrounding region have to offer. The education program will provide needed context and background. Those who attend will become specialists of Seville, of Spain, and of the whole Andalusian region. We have much planned for you right here in Seville—from the opening night reception fit for royalty at the Real Alcázar, the oldest royal palace still in use in Europe, to an exclusive epicurean experience at the iconic Hotel Alfonso XIII, sponsored by Starwood Hotels & Resorts. We even have a customized tapas tour of the most emblematic bars and restaurants in the area. Our Spanish hosts are laying out the red carpet for ASTA agents.

2 - ASTA Destination Expo 2016


At the program’s conclusion, you will leave Seville knowing which local suppliers to recommend, and which of your clients are perfect for Seville. In a dynamic destination such as Seville, learning solely in a classroom is almost criminal. We hope you will take in as much of this country and region as possible. Take this opportunity to experience the cinematic history of Carmona, or spend the day exploring the Maria Luisa Park. The true culture of Seville comes to life through its live music, so take some time to see an authentic flamenco show and be inspired by the Seville de Opera. This Destination Expo would not be possible without the generosity of our partners, Tourespana, Seville, Andulucia, Starwood Hotels & Resorts, Melia Hotels International, NH Hotels, Iberia and Enterprise. We also appreciate the tremendous support shown by all of the exhibitors who made this program possible. ASTA agents, please get to know these exhibitors, and make sure you qualify to earn your ASTA Seville Destination Specialist certificate so you can build trust and credibility with existing and prospective clients. Thank you for joining us. Let’s explore Seville together.

Religious Diversity in Sevilla Speakers: Emilio Monjo, Director of CIMPE & Dr. Juan Sánchez Naffziger

Brussels ABCD

Seville has an incalculable cultural wealth but part of our treasure has long remained hidden. Preceding the 16th century, the presence of Jewish families, which had been forced to 'convert' to Catholicism, was crucial for the emergence of numerous theological and biblical studies of the highest quality. These came as a consequence of the true and heartfelt conversion to Christianity those Spanish Jews experienced. It was from the Sevillian monastery of San Isidoro del Campo, in Santiponce, that the movement of religious dissidence sprang. Join us to learn more about this fascinating topic.
