Childhood is Palma Congress Center’s main focus of social action and one of the pillars of its corporate responsibility program. Therefore, since its opening in 2017, the congress center has been promoting solidarity initiatives for the city's children.
“Sonrisa Médica”, which brings humor and joy to hospitalized children in Mallorca, is a local NGO with whom the congress center has strengthened its collaboration. Last year, on the occasion of World Cancer Day, the Palau organized a solidarity children's day for the benefit of the NGO, while this August, Meliá Palma Bay - the Palau’s hotel - celebrated the “Hotel of Noses ”, an initiative aimed at raising funds, involving hotel guests.
The Palma Congress Center (Palau) also collaborates with the Rafa Nadal Foundation, with whom it shares values and a strategic positioning in favor of the city's most vulnerable children. Both entities are located in the Nou Llevant neighborhood of Palma. The Rafa Nadal Foundation Center aims to generate a positive impact on groups of young people at risk of social exclusion through the promotion of sport values .
As a result of their agreement, the Palau is committed to disseminating the work of the foundation among its corporate clients, as well as offering them the opportunity to support the Rafa Nadal Foundation through donations, the acquisition of solidarity merchandising, etc.
In addition, since 2017, the two organizations have collaborated with the celebration of the Millor Junts solidarity race.
More than 1,600 partners of Ringana, the Austrian natural and vegan cosmetics company with an international presence, participated in the Ringana Next event in June, which was held for the first time at the Congress Center in Palma.
The Palma Congress Center hosted from June 2 to 4 the 68th Congress of the Spanish Association of Pediatrics (AEP), which had to be postponed in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and which has brought together nearly 1,500 pediatricians in the city.
