We want the Palma Congress Center not only to be a meeting place for the economic, social and scientific fabric, but also a true value generator for the destination and true support for the real needs of our community. For this reason, since last April, and together with our Meliá Palma Bay hotel, we have teamed up in collaboration with the SOS Mamás Mallorca association and the Fundació Monti·sion Solidaria to donate surplus food on a daily basis, to help needy families in Palma.
In addition, with the donation of food surpluses from the breakfast buffet or coffee breaks, such as bakery and pastry, we also contribute to one of the environmental action levers of the Congress Center, which is combating food waste.
SOS Mamás Mallorca is a non-profit organization focused mainly on delivering food to the most needy families. Currently, they have several centers in Palma and Calviá, serving more than 11,000 people - of which more than 3,000 children - as well as a social diner.
In the same way, the Monti·sion Solidària Foundation also aims to serve people who are in a situation of social vulnerability on the island, covering their needs for food, clothing, toys, as well as snacks and solidarity backpacks for the children, with more than 5,000 beneficiaries.
The XXXIV GEDET Meeting, the Spanish Cosmetic and Therapeutic Dermatology Group of the AEDV (Spanish Academy of Dermatology and Venereology), will take place in Palma on 5, 6 and 7 October 2023.
As the year progresses into its final quarter, the Palma Congress Center is poised for an exciting period ahead, anticipating a surge in activity thanks to more than 20 events scheduled during this period, including five major congresses.
Autumn attracts a large number of cyclists to Mallorca, where there is an incredible variety of opportunities to explore the island by bike, as well as an infrastructure developed to meet the needs of cyclists at all levels.
