FITUR 2020 CONCLUDES ITS MOST MULTITUDINARY AND SUSTAINABLE EDITION
The 40th edition of FITUR (International Tourism Fair) landed once more in Madrid to present the novelties of the sector by hundreds of companies and institutions from all over the world. The meeting concluded with the highest attendance figures in its history, with more than 250,000 attendees, and with sustainability as the protagonist of this year with many proposals to reduce the ecological damage.
The event was held at IFEMA – Feria de Madrid from January 20 to 24 and was attended by 165 countries and regions, with South Korea as a Partner Country of this edition, and about a thousand stands that presented trends and innovations of numerous tourist destinations. In addition, the fair had various activities such as concerts, talks, gastronomic tastings or exhibitions with special emphasis on the ecological development of this industry.
In this sense, many of FITUR’s stands and positions were focused on sustainability by having recyclable and low-consumption materials. For example Iberia´s stand, whose structure was made with paper, or that of Globalia, with a stand raised with reused elements, which hosted different samples and acts of commitment to the environment.
Fluge Audiovisuales was present as the audiovisual equipment and technical personnel provider of this 40 edition of FITUR through the aforementioned Iberia and Globalia stands, in addition to the Castilla-La Mancha stand, all of them in Hall 10. Also in the Caixabank stand, in the Hall 8, at the AETIB stand of the Balearic Islands, in Hall 7, and at the Generalitat de Catalunya stand.
