FITUR ends with hope for tourist boost in 2022

This year’s FITUR tourism fair closed with increased hope for a successful 2022

Officials said that over 110,000 visitors attended this year’s event in Madrid, with an economic impact of over €150 million to the tourism sector.

During the fair, Tourism Secretary Fernando Valdes said that expectations for the year remain high, with a ‘bounce back’ in spring after a slowdown caused by the Omicron variant of the coronavirus.

This was the second event to be held during the pandemic, and one which focused on sustainability and the digitisation of travel services.

In 2019, 80 million people visited Spain for holiday, whilst last year saw around a third of that number due to various lockdowns

Hotel chains have said that they are noticing an increase in bookings, with reservations coming from the UK, Germany, Holland and France.
