These are the FITUR B2B MATCH agenda for tour operators’ and agencies’ international buyers, and also the agenda specialising in incentive tourism, meetings and business travel namely, FITUR MICE.
Both programmes have proved to be an effective tool, bringing together a large amount of business activity during FITUR’s business visitor days.
This is evident in the figures from the last edition at which, within the scope of these two programmes, more than 9000 B2B meetings were held with buyers from all over the world.

To prepare the programme, FITUR has worked with different sources in the tourism industry and with IFEMA’s network of delegations and Marketing Offices that operate in more than 28 countries.
