The Business and Trade Fair of La Palma revitalises the Aridane Valley with a varied agenda of activities

The event, which will take place in Los Llanos de Aridane from 12 to 14 April, will be attended by 47 companies.

The Cabildo de La Palma will be holding a new edition of the Business and Trade Fair with the aim of boosting the economy of the Aridane Valley. The event, which will take place from 12th to 14th April in Llano Tesa, in Los Llanos de Aridane, will include the participation of 47 companies from the island and a wide range of activities.

The event, organised by the Cabildo de La Palma, through the public company Sodepal, will be inaugurated on Friday 12th April at 12:00 noon.

Miriam Perestelo, head of Commerce and Economic Promotion of the Cabildo de La Palma and CEO of Sodepal, points out that this space gives visibility and impetus to local entrepreneurship, seeking the economic development of a key sector in the island's economy that generates employment.

This initiative allows residents and visitors to enjoy a weekend with a programme that, as well as focusing on supporting the business fabric, includes a wide range of leisure, cultural and gastronomic activities. 

It is worth highlighting this year's leisure programme, which includes music, children's shows and toy libraries. These activities will allow all families to have a great time.

Some educational centres will also collaborate in the event, such as the Pérez Pulido Secondary School, which will take part in the fair to promote the professional cycles of commerce and advertising.

In this way, the La Palma Business and Trade Fair has become an ideal initiative to support and promote the commercial sector this coming weekend.
