The 2014 season for the Chia Laguna Resort, the elgant complex in South Sardinia, has started under the sign of sports. The first appointment, on the 18th April, has been with Giro Sardegna, the most important cycling competition of the island, which has chosen the Chia Laguna as a location for a trip to discover Sardinia exclusively in bicycle. The event was a week long and over 500 bicycle fans from all over the world were present.

The second, more international event, was the Chia Laguna Half Marathon, a foot race at its third edition, run Sunday 27th April. Among the 3,200 runners ready at the start (one thousand more than last year), there were also champions such as Valeria Straneo, vice-champion of the World of Marathon 2013, the Italian Marathon champion, Danilo Goffi, and also Giovanni Ruggiero, Migidio Bourifa, Deborah Toniolo and the British Stuart Stokes.

The opening of the 2014 season of the Chia Laguna Resort registers thus a full occupancy: 436 rooms, for a totla of over 1,000 guests at the facility that, before and after the event, have been able to enjoy the high standards of the Resort, awarded in 2012 as best of Italy at the World Travel Awards. The new Chia Laguna Conference Centre was the nerve centre of both events and the headquarters for both organisation offices. It is among the largest convention centres and exhibition spaces of all Sardinia, with 950 places divided among plenary meeting hall and other modular halls.  The recent restoration allowed the creation of versatile, flexible spaces able to host small meeting or corporate conventions of larger dimensions. Particularly, in occasion for the Chia Laguna Half Marathon, the wide foyer of 500 msq, illuminated with natural light, has hosted the Expo Village of the event with stands for sponsors of the race and the management center of the event.

Apart from the two large sports events, the complex has already other bank, pharmaceutical, insurance, distribution, cosmetic, automotive and telecommunications events penned in the calendar. It is not simply a case, therefore, that the Resort, facing the splendid Chia Bay, is shortlisted at the World Travel Awards 2014 in the nominations for Italy's Leading Conference Hotel 2014, together with other two "leisure" nominations: Leading Resort 2014 and Europe's Leading Family Resort 2014.
