The III Forum and Congress of the Pilgrim’s Way to Santiago closed doors with general satisfaction among the public and the organization, which highlighted the increase in exhibitors as well as in the number of participants and professional meetings held. The Fair specialized in the Way of Saint James, which was held in Santiago de Compostela, is thus consolidated in its third edition as a necessary meeting point for the international promotion of the Way of Saint James.
Almost 2,000 professional meetings with 35 companies from 15 countries took place throughout the fair’s workshop, in which more than a hundred companies took part and offered their services. In addition, the fair was completed with more than a hundred exhibitors and a congress in which almost fifty speakers participated. All of this demonstrates the interest in the Pilgrim’s Way to Santiago and the consolidation of Fairway, which has brought together numerous actors involved in the promotion, conservation and marketing of the Pilgrim’s Way to Santiago.
Once again, the Cluster Tourism of Galicia has also been present at the fair, as it has done in the two previous editions, through a stand which has offered information about the entity and the products developed, in addition to supporting companies and associated entities that have also been present at the fair as the Association of Guides of Galicia, Agalber, Asnauga, Solpor or CMAT.
There was also space for training, in the Academy space, where presentations were made on tourism marketing and online reputation. Likewise, the third edition of the Forum del Camino consolidates itself as the ideal framework for presenting new tourist projects and products, both public and private, linked to the Pilgrim’s Way, whether they are consolidated products or potential products, through the Invest programme, an initiative that was born in this edition of Fairway with the desire to encourage entrepreneurship. Gato Studio, a company from A Coruña, was the one that managed to win the 5,000 euros prize awarded to the winning project.
