FITUR is one of the biggest tourism fairs worldwide and number one on the Iberian Peninsula. Seeing the strong demand from the Iberian region, the Berlin-based company decided to participate in the long established international trade fair to meet with potential clients who can benefit from Fairmas solutions.

  • 135,838 trade participants and 109,134 people from the general public

    39% Chairman / Managing Director

    20% Sales Executive, Consultant
    6% Others
  • 7,542 journalists attended thus proving the importance of FITUR on the international circuit of tourism sector events

“We have confirmed appointments with a significant number of hotels – from individual hotels to hotel management groups who are either exhibiting or attending. We are excited to demonstrate how our software solutions could address their hotel-specific needs in order to help them achieve their goal of becoming leaders in their own respective markets,” said Oliver Rabe, director of business development, Fairmas GmbH.
“With FITUR on its 38th year and going stronger with increased exhibitor and visitor numbers year on year, it goes without saying that heading out to Madrid to meet with decision-makers is a smart move in growing our business. We also have our key product FairPlanner online, the planning and controlling solution available in Spanish so this already meets a basic requirement for the Iberian and Latin American markets. We are keen to see the outcome of this year’s edition and maybe we can look at exhibiting next year,” added Niels Schroeder, managing director, Fairmas GmbH.
