The Nova Yardinia Resort hosts the world karate and kickboxing championships

The fifth world karate and kickboxing championships organized by the World Karate Council (WKC) from 15 to 19 October is currently being held at the Nova Yardinia Resort of Castellaneta Marina, in the province of Taranto.

The world championships will host more than 900 participants including athletes, escorts and fans from all over the world, who will be welcomed at the complex’s four hospitality facilities: the Kalidria Thalasso SPA Resort, the Alborea Eco Lodge Suites, the Calanè Hotel Village and the Valentino Grand Village.

The sports event is only the last in chronological order: in fact, another 20 national and international events were held at Nova Yardinia in 2013, registering the presence of as many as 70,000 attendees. Among the many events that took place, particularly worthy of note were the National Erasmus Event 2013 which brought 2,500 students from all over Europe to Puglia, or the corporate conventions of GameStop, McDonald’s or LEGO.

"In  2013, the MICE segment will represent 30% of total attendees, with a 35% growth rate compared to 2012 in terms of turnover” commented Vincenzo Gentile, managing director of the Nova Yardinia Resort, thus confirming the facility’s MICE vocation.

The resort, one of the largest in Italy, boasts four hotels (two 5-star and two 4-star) for a total of 790 rooms, 30 conference rooms, 7,800 square metres of unconventional display areas and spaces, 14 restaurants, 5km of private beach and a Thalasso Spa extending over a surface area of 3,500 square metres.
