These drew 47,263 participants in all, so it is seen that the average attendance at each event was 445 people. The average stay was 1.7 days. The Malaga Fairs and Congresses Palace proposes a broad and varied calendar of activities with increased numbers of fairs from various spheres of activity, and to attract quality congresses that will bring together consumer motivators in the congress industry and make it possible to attract important and internationally influential events.
