On October 19th, the Official Spanish Chamber of Commerce in Belgium and Luxembourg, in collaboration with the Spanish Office of Tourism and the Spanish Embassy  in Luxembourg, will organise the Day of Spain in Luxembourg at the Place d’Armes.

Through this unprecedented day in the Grand Duchy, the Chamber seeks, on the one hand, to present Spain as a tourist destination and all the gastronomic and leisure offer that surrounds it; and on the other, to highlight the leading companies and innovation that exist in Spain, as well as the existing job and training opportunities.

“Fiesta española” in Luxembourg

Annually, the FAEL (Federation of Spanish Associations in Luxembourg) organizes the Fiesta española, an activity aimed at the Spanish-speaking public resident in Luxembourg and with an extensive program of cultural and gastronomic activities.

This year the Fiesta española will take place on Sunday, January 20, 2019 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Center Culturel de Hollerich (36, rue Emile Lavandier), and has the support of the Embassy of Spain in Luxembourg.

In this edition, the Chamber and the FAEL are coordinating the organization of a stand that aims to promote Spanish companies and professionals who provide their services in Luxembourg. The environment of this event, which last year brought together more than 500 participants, is an excellent opportunity to promote the activity of Spanish professionals among the Hispanic public residing in Luxembourg.

The idea is that each professional or company interested in participating, can have a shared space in this stand to distribute information about their activity. To cover the expenses of organizing the stand, a symbolic cost of 10 euros will be applied to each participant.
