FIWARE is excited to be a Platinum Sponsor of FIDI 2020 (“Feria Internacional de Destinos Inteligentes”). The free International Fair of Smart Destinations, happening virtually like so many events this year, is a meeting place for leading companies and public officials from across the globe, within the realm of tourism and technology, to share experiences and knowledge about the topic of Smart Destinations.

For ten days, from 20-29 November 2020, representatives from relevant sectors will be able to position their destination or brand, create synergies, get inspired, and stay up-to-date on the latest trends. In addition, the virtual platform has a space to accommodate networking opportunities, workshops, seminars, and round tables, making it that much easier to attend from wherever you are based in the world.
