About the Event

Meetings are a unique form of human communications: Participants share an experience in the same physical environment and this produces a desired behavioral change that produces results for any business or association. At Connections Meetings we know who is who in the global meetings and events arena. With your input, we match you with relevant buyers or suppliers, enabling you to forge valuable connections and share ideas through memorable experiences.

Dress Code

The Connections way works best when you embrace the experiences on offer. During the day we would advise that all delegates dress in comfortable/casual attire.

Suits and ties are not required

We all like you to look your best, but with our programme being active, suits may not work!

Think carefully about heels

Heels can be a problem if you want to join some of the activities on offer, so if you’re going to wear heels, consider bringing some flats too so you don’t miss out.

Weather

The average temperature in Málaga is likely to be 28°C, but please do check the weather before packing your suitcase.

We do advise that all delegates take their own necessities, which may include, medical supplies, etc.
