Fairs are undoubtedly a key element for any sector to evolve. They represent a showcase in which businesses have the chance to present and share their latest novelties and experiences, while also being an excellent meeting point for professionals.
At Galben Travel & Business we are already managing the first business trip reservations for visiting the main fairs of 2016, from nautical and food fairs to pharmacy and technology fairs.
But in today’s post, given the important and evident relation that exists between the Balearic Islands and the tourism sector, we suggest a calendar of the main tourism fairs in Europe for 2016:
Fitur (Madrid, January 20-24). Madrid’s tourism fair is, without a shadow of a doubt, one of the main tourism fairs in Spain, specializing in the receptive and issuing markets of Latin America.
ITB Berlin (Berlin, March 9-13). Many consider it the most important tourism fair in the world, and it could well be; its last edition counted with more than 10,000 stands from 186 countries and more than 175,000 visitors. This next year the fair celebrates its 50th anniversary.
