This weekend Marbella will see pure luxury with the Marbella Luxury Weekend, a project driven by the Department of Toursism of the Town Council of Marbella. The town is completing its preparations to become host to one of the most important social occasions of the summer. During four days, from the 2nd to 5th of June 2011, Puerto Banús will become an extraordinary showcase for the leaders of the world of fashion with catwalks and exclusive presentations from some of the biggest names in fashion.
It is the first time that a project combines the most representative segments of the tourist sector. Marbella Luxury Weekend has obtained the direct collaboration of the firms located in the port itself, of the catering sector and of the principal hotel chains in the town.
