Following an incredibly successful year in 2014, we thought we´d take a moment to reflect and to share.
Last year, we held the most successful Maspalomas Fetish week yet. Tourism in October to the island has never been better. Partnerships with Recon and Into the Tank continue to thrive, and 2015 looks set to be even bigger again. The dates are out: 9th – 15th October. Check us out on Facebook: Maspalomas Fetish Week. The special beauty of Maspalomas Fetish Week is that it brings together so many of the Yumbo´s businesses, in collaborations that truly benefit the whole centre.
We launched Maspalomas Summer Fiesta, in August 2014, and although only 3 days of events, the whole project was a huge success. The highlight was the packed Pirate Boat trip, and insane parties at Kiss Lounge Bar. This year, The Maspalomas Summer Fiesta has moved to July, so we can expand the programme. The key dates are: 24th, 25th and 26th July, but there will be smaller events either side of those dates. Follow us on Facebook: Maspalomas Summer Fiesta.
Also new from us, was the fantastic Miss and Mister Maspalomas competition which we created in August. A completely new style of event for us saw over 125 applications from men and women vying for the Crown and titles. The successful winners, Ulises Garcia and Natalia Maitland, are also shortlisted for the final of Miss and Mister Las Palmas. This project was created to enhance and work more closely with the Local islanders.
In December at the Annual GLAY Awards, IGON picked up 5 awards. This Year IGON received the Community Award for recognition of its work for promoting Tourism, additionally we won Sex Venue of the Year for Bunker Bar, Gay Complex of the Year for Basement Studios, Dj of the Year for DJ Lori at Kiss Lounge Bar and Lesbian of the Year for Jess, in Kiki. A fantastic achievement for the businesses and staff, and one that truly reflects the diversity of our businesses.
