IFEMA MADRID is all set to organise the International Tourism Fair, FITUR 2023, from 18 to 22 January 2023. It will be held at the Trade Fair Centre in Madrid, Spain. Guatemala will be a ‘FITUR 23 Partner’ under the new brand ‘Guatemala. Amazing and unstoppable’, which encompasses the industries of tourism, economy, investment and culture for the first time. Juan Arrizabalaga, Managing Director, IFEMA, said, “For FITUR, establishing this strategic alliance with Guatemala is especially important, as it helps boost its recognition as a preferential destination and its positioning as a tourist destination. We are very much looking forward to working together and joining forces for FITUR 2023.”
