Madrid Tourism Fair returns offline
The Madrid Tourism Fair (FITUR) returns to its usual format from 19 to 23 January this year, despite a new upsurge of disease caused by the Omicron strain.
Some 7,000 companies and 600 exhibitors from 70 countries from all parts of the world are participating in this important event in the travel industry. In addition, ten states will participate online.
The first three days of the fair will be open only to professionals, and on the weekend, the exhibits will be available to the general public as well.
"Organizing this event shows that we have to accept the current situation. We must learn to live with it, just as we do when we go to the movies, malls, basketball games, or take our children to school," commented Javier Sanchez Prieto, president of the FITUR organizing committee.
Guests from EU countries arriving at the fair must present a vaccination certificate. In contrast, visitors from abroad must present a Spain Travel Health QR code, a negative PCR or antigen test taken no more than 24 hours before arrival at the event. All participants are required to wear a mask with FPP2 protection.
