AM NEWS | Special FITUR 2021
Dear Affiliate Members,
I am pleased to share with you our AM News bulletin Vol.30, which features special content dedicated to FITUR 2021 – the International Tourism Fair of Madrid – to be held from the 19th to the 23rd of May.
At the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), we are actively promoting and supporting the progressive resumption of face-to-face events, in due compliance with the protocols and measures established by the national authorities. From this perspective, we see FITUR 2021 as an important milestone in the roadmap for the progressive and sustainable restart of the sector.
I truly believe that, within the new and hopeful context marked by the advance in the vaccination against COVID-19, FITUR 2021 will be the first great international mobility event in Europe this year.
It is my pleasure to extend a cordial invite to participate in FITUR 2021 to our Affiliate Members. This 2021 edition will focus on the recovery of tourism, and it will offer a wide variety of spaces and activities aimed at showing the future trends in the sector.
The UNWTO Affiliate Members Department (AMD) and the host of the IFEMA/FITUR Fair, an UNWTO Affiliate Member, have jointly prepared a special package for all Affiliate Members participating at the Fair, which includes a series of advantages and benefits, as well as activities specially dedicated to our Membership. You can read all about it in this issue of the bulletin.
We will continue the work to complete and reinforce this package of benefits designed for our affiliates and to keep you updated on the activities at the Fair, with the conviction that this will facilitate a significant presence of our Affiliate Members at FITUR 2021.
In this respect, I would like to encourage you to visit our AMConnected platform regularly to find the latest updates and information on these and other activities of the Affiliate Members Department. Also, please keep engaging and sharing your news and initiatives with us on the platform.
As always, I am at your disposal and look forward to hearing any comments you might have.
