The tourism councillor, Marcelino Umpiérrez, explained that “La Oliva was the only municipality from Fuerteventura to have participated in this International Tourism Event, attending with the Italian speaking technician and promotor of Corralejo's Tourism Office, as well as a representative of the Tourism Board”. The results of the professional days that took place at the beginning of the week “were very positive, both on a promotional level and regarding agreements and encounters with the agents of that sector”. “We feel that it is important to be present during this fair to promote our municipality on the Italian market which is interesting for its profile of tourists who are loyal to Fuerteventura and particularly to La Oliva”. Bellisima, the new themed tourism event in June Bellisima is the name of the themed fair that the Tourism Council of La Oliva's Ayuntamiento is organising in June further to the good results of the Oktoberfest.
