The first event at Palma's Palacio de Congresos will take place in the middle of next month. The convention centre and hotel both open next Saturday. Meliá describes this as a "soft opening", with the first two days devoted to people it has invited to test out the various facilities. The first clients for the hotel will arrive on 3 April, when it is expected that sixty rooms will be occupied. This will increase as the weeks go by and events begin to be held.
