The new space, organised in collaboration with the Spanish sports industry association Afydad, responds to FITUR’s ongoing concern to provide itself with new tools and platforms that contribute to further boosting the relaunch of a tourism industry whose development and expansion is fundamentally focused on increasing specialisation and segmentation of the offer.
FITUR Sports, which will show how sports tourism is a driver of sustainable growth for the tourism industry, will be the meeting point for both to highlight the potential of this lever for socio-economic development, analyse its challenges, share knowledge and generate business opportunities. All of this is part of FITUR’s aim to continue to deepen its role as a benchmark and promoter of the tourism industry, deepening its knowledge and dissemination of the main niche markets and business segments with the brightest future in the global tourism industry.
FITUR Sports will complement the other nine monographic sections already present at FITUR, linked to types of tourism, market segments and the dissemination of knowledge (Mice, Know-how&Export, TechY, Talent, LGBT+, Lingua, Screen, Woman and Cruises), making it possible for the entire tourism industry ecosystem to come together at the fair.
FITUR Sports, which will hold the 1st FITUR Sports Tourism Summiton on January 19, 2023, will address sports tourism in all its facets: sporting events, training camps, sports holidays.
