40th International Atlantic Trade Fair

From 24 to 27 November 2016 in the Institución Ferial de Canarias (Canary Islands Trade Fair Institution) - INFECAR - Gran Canaria
40ª Feria Internacional del Atlántico. Del 24 al 27 de noviembre de 2016 en la Institución Ferial de Canarias-INFECAR-Gran Canaria

The International Atlantic Trade Fair is celebrating 40 years with a focus on tourism, which is the economic and social engine of the Canary Islands. The aim is to create a meeting point for all those companies and professionals that buy and sell products and services for the tourism industry. From 24 to 27 November 2016, professional solutions for the tourism sector will be displayed in more than 7000 m2 of exhibition space.

The tourism industry accounts for more than 30% of the Islands’ Gross Domestic Product, in an economy which imports and exports investment, energy, knowledge, tourism brands, trends, goods, equipment and technologies. With more than 12 million tourists each year, the Canary Islands is a leading market for products and services in the tourism sector, as well as having proven experience in the sector that endorses its internationalisation.

The Canary Islands Trade Fair Institution, part of the the Cabildo of Gran Canaria (the Island Government), has been opening doors for business between Europe, Africa and America for five decades. Now, with the 40th International Atlantic Trade Fair, it is beginning a new era of specialisation, becoming the key trade fair for the tourism sector in the Canary Islands and providing new opportunities for business, investment, promotion and cooperation.

Casa África is bringing two speakers to this event:

  • Carlos Vogeler, Executive Director of the WTO (World Tourism Organisation)
  • Diego Fuentes, CEO of VIP World Events

    Both will participate on Friday 25 November. Mr Vogeler will discuss global trends in tourism and Mr Fuentes will talk about TOP (Tourism Optimizer Platform)
