Ask any event organizer and they’ll tell you: location, space and atmosphere are key to the success of any event. Luckily, Costa del Sol has plenty of conference and exhibition centres that can accommodate all kinds of events and fairs. That, combined with the destination’s great food and drink scene and wealth of cultural and leisure activities, makes Costa del Sol a top choice for professional events.
In fact, more and more, national and international event organizers are choosing to host their work events in the province of Malaga, so much so that the Palacio de Ferias y Congresos de Málaga (FYCMA) has one of the most extensive conference calendars worldwide. Companies from many sectors meet here, and the province’s numerous venues is just one reason why.
Here are some of our favourite conference and exhibition centres in Costa del Sol:
