Last Tuesday, April 25, the City of Culture hosted a conference dedicated to investment and innovation in the world of camping organized by Banco Sabadell. At the meeting, they delved into the advantages that entrepreneurs or self-employed people can obtain from their investments, in day-to-day collection and payment solutions, and in carrying out sustainable projects. The opening of the event was in charge of Nava Castro, director of Tourism of Galicia.
Ignacio Rodríguez Taboada, director of the European Funds and Sustainability at Banco Sabadell, began his speech by talking about sustainable financing applicable to camping. Rodríguez Taboada pointed out the generation of renewable energies, the reduction of energy consumption and water consumption, the recycling of waste, energy efficiency and sustainable mobility as the main axes in terms of sustainable investments. He also mentioned the platform for European aid and subsidies from Banco Sabadell, where it is possible to carry out personalized simulations and diagnoses.
The conference continued with the help of Jorge Alonso, director of Specialized Financing, who brought solutions for collections and payments in the camps to the audience. The renting method is one of the keys in today’s society, which applied to the tourism field can be applied to the rental of capital goods, including: furniture, catering machinery, air conditioning, equipment, various fixed machinery, and photovoltaic panels. This type of rental provides various advantages for the client, such as planned and controlled spending, the possibility of including insurance and services, or the variety of contract types. For people interested in receiving advice on leasing, Alonso cited the company CSI Partner, with more than 10 years of experience in the sector.
Finally, Silvia Rumbo, director of eCommerce and POS at Banco Sabadell, spoke about the types of collections and payments at campsites. Rumbo mentioned online payment lines, a new payment financing product for freelancers and businesses without charging interest. He also commented on the importance of investing in an intelligent POS, which, in addition to having the characteristics of traditional POS, incorporates new features such as splitting the bill, consulting operations, designing a personalized digital ticket, quickly managing returns, or secure payment for link or scan.
