FITUR 2021 will be Held May 19 - 23

The next edition of the International Tourism Fair, FITUR 2021, will be held from the May 19-23, as agreed by IFEMA and the FITUR organising committee.

This comes after a meditated decision that, exceptionally, makes this event essential to the recovery of the tourism industry, at a time that will still preserve its high international impact and thus, promote the professional reunion of companies, countries and destinations and provide a much-needed boost to the worldwide tourism activity.

The meeting of the FITUR organising committee, headed by IBERIA's president, Javier Sánchez Prieto, also featured speeches by the secretary of state for tourism, Fernando Valdés; UNWTO secretary-general, Zurab Pololikashvili; the president of the Spanish Confederation of Hotels and Tourist Accommodation, CEHAT, Jorge Marichal; the president of the Spanish Confederation of Travel Agencies, CEAV, Carlos Garrido, and the president of Mesa del Turismo, Juan Molas, among others.

For its part, IFEMA is focusing all its effort on presenting an edition aimed at contributing to the recovery of tourism at a time when FITUR's role as a driving engine is critical and decisive. Therefore, it is especially important to focus on optimising its rallying power, in addition to enriching its specialised content and new business niches, as well as promoting knowledge areas that contribute towards relaunching both the national and international tourism activity, as one of the world's main growth engines and especially for Spain, where tourism is the main sector, both in terms of GDP and employment.
