Málaga is an ideal destination for holding congresses, trade fairs and business events of all types, due to its high standards of equipment. The quality hotels, an extensive network of communications by land and sea, together with a privileged climate, beaches and gastronomy, as well as the opening in 2003 of the Trade Fairs and Congress Center, have consolidated the city as a perfect hostess for the organization of events and meetings.
The capacity of the trade fair precincts and Málaga congresses to be among the points of reference of tourist meetings and congresses in Spain has contributed to the positioning of Málaga as a priority urban destination. In its tenth anniversary the Trade Fairs and Congress Center had already held more than 1,000 events, which has converted it in one of the main driving forces of the economy of Málaga and its metropolitan area.
It is important to underline that in 2011 Fycma achieved the award of the Spanish Federation of Associations of Professional Organizers of Congresses (OPC) in the category of the best host congresses. This is an award only authorized by the professionals themselves, and therefore it has special significance.
The Malaga Center is located five minutes from the Malaga-Costa del Sol Airport and just a few kilometres from the center of Malaga; it is therefore a strategic and privileged facilityit for the organization and holding of all types of events. Business tourism has become a strategic section for the city of Malaga, since, together with cultural tourism and cruises, it is part of the overall strategy of the municipal policy and contributes to the functioning of the Malaga-based local economy, favouring the development of the business structure, hotel, shopping and gastronomy, among others.
