IFEMA Madrid Receives the ICTE Safe Tourism Certified Seal

IFEMA Madrid has received the "Safe Tourism Certified" seal, a recognition granted by the Institute for Spanish Tourist Quality (ICTE) certifying that the institution complies with the maximum hygienic-sanitary guarantees in the provision of its services as a global fair operator, as well as in its facilities which annually host around a thousand important professional and public events. The "Safe Tourism Certified" seal was received by the CEO of IFEMA Madrid, Eduardo López-Puertas, from Miguel Mirones, president of ICTE.

According to López-Puertas in a press statement, "This recognition further encourages the effort that IFEMA Madrid is making with the support of all Administrations, to reactivate a key industry for the economic recovery of Spain at the global level, i.e. tourism, through the face-to-face celebration of FITUR; an event that is highly anticipated by the entire tourism industry value chain, an industry that can now feel even more confident in the measures taken and endorsed by this Safe Tourism Certified label”.

For his part, Mirones added, “The fact that IFEMA has achieved the 'Safe Tourism Certified' certification and that FITUR will be organized for the special 2021 edition according to the certification criteria will represent the culmination of the massive response by companies and organizations from the entire tourism value chain, equipping themselves with a set of prevention protocols that, after being world pioneers, have set the standard for facing the pandemic in the tourism industry worldwide.”
