Under the slogan 'Connecting with Diversity', the professional days will offer presentations and the weekend will enjoy the more playful side of FITUR LGTB+.

The FITUR LGBT+ section returns to the International Tourism Trade Fair to show the world the wealth and variety of Spain’s inclusive and sustainable tourist destinations.

From 24 to 28 January, this space located in Hall 9 of IFEMA MADRID will be celebrating diversity and showcasing new ways to promote tourism offers that emphasise inclusivity and sustainability.

 Under the slogan 'Conectando con la Diversidad’ (Connecting with Diversity), FITUR LGTB+', will be inaugurated on Wednesday 24th at 4.30pm with the presence of representatives from national and local institutions. After that, a wide-ranging activity and conference programme will commence, including the official presentation of the Spanish Network of Destinations for Diversity, where project participants will be explaining the importance of the tourism offer made by destinations for travellers of all identities. Attendees will be able to discover everything from dream-like coastlines to cities steeped in history through the exhibitors, who will be sharing their latest innovations and once again demonstrating their commitment to inclusivity and creativity.

 Over the course of the professional visitor days (Wednesday 24 to Friday 26), the section will be offering different presentations and forums where experts will share their knowledge alongside IBERIA, the main sponsor of this specialised area.  At the weekend, the general public will be able to enjoy the more fun, lively and varied side of FITUR LGTB+ with vibrant shows and a variety of activities they can participate in.

  •  Weekend activities: you can enjoy musical performances by Libertad Montero, Cristal Forever, the legendary Black & White and Atreve el Musical, and even a Chueca Diversa fashion show by designer Jose Perea.
