The tourism fair held in Madrid, Spain, between January 18 and 22, left a very positive balance for Colombia.
The results left by one of the most strategic fairs for tourism worldwide were quite positive for Colombia, which obtained an 85% increase in business expectations, compared to what it generated in last year’s edition. The 15.6 million dollars earned show how attractive our country continues to be for foreign investment.
More than 5.000 people visited the stand that Procolombia had in the Spanish capital, where they could taste 100% Colombian coffee and learn more about the culture of our country.
The Tourism Vice-minister, Arturo Bravo, assured that during the two days of attention to the final public, “we exhibited the tourist offer of the country, which now includes new peace destinies, and we participated in various international events, where we had the opportunity to tell how tourism consolidates as a way of contributing to the total peace and to the environment regeneration. Our new management model is attractive to other countries because it is made in harmony with life”.
The Colombian delegation was made up of 38 companies and regional promotion entities and achieved 578 meetups with various entrepreneurs from 48 countries, among which Spain, the UK, Germany, the USA, Mexico, and Italy stand out.
According to official data, in 2022, tourism services contributed nearly 45 billion pesos to the Colombian economy and 30% of the country’s jobs.
