According to a study presented this April by MCI Spain Event Services, the world’s leading event, conference and congress organizer, 60% of companies will hold face-to-face events from mid-2021.
As a result of the pandemic, the sector has had to make enormous efforts and transform itself to adapt to virtual events, using digital technology and innovation in its communication system between partners and stakeholders.
Given the current situation, the need to continue uniting communities has led more than 90% of companies to hold virtual events in the last six months. Only a very limited group has not held virtual events due to the paralysis of all actions, among other reasons.

From FIAVE, the first Spanish federation that represents the audiovisual and events industry, we are joining forces to work together to recover the sector, join us!
Currently, they are already part of FIAVE:
