And given the focus of my business company that focuses on offering European delicacies and specialties of high quality was deciding whether to accept the invitation fairly simple. After a few days, however, I got word that my participation was approved. Transport organization was in place by the Spanish company and its branches in Prague perfectly mastered.

As the departure airport, I chose Vienna. Before flying to Madrid I filled leisure visit to the Sky Lounge Lunch.

and thanks to property Mastercard credit cards was my stay here including all eating and drinking free. At the entrance to the lounge you may need for any active credit card MC. Lounges are located up in the departures section of the airport on the second floor. The road to Madrid lasted about three hours and mischief us strong turbulence. At the airport in Madrid, all of those who were invited to this exhibition, have expectations and then transported by bus to Merida accommodation. Overall, about 80 people gathered. Traders came from Brazil, Mexico, Peru, Colombia, Romania, Bulgaria, Morocco, Ukraine, Poland, Germany, Italy and other countries.


Concerns with communication problems after the first meeting disappeared. Already at the airport, it was clear that he met a group of people and relaxed before boarding the bus, I met not only with other expats in Prague and Olomouc, but is very willing organizers of Barcelona, ​​a trader from Poland, Italy and Peru. We waited almost 4 hour bus ride to Merida hotel. And even if we are after a long day of touring were upon arrival at the hotel tired, thanks to good organization, we still managed a brief welcome presentation and in addition, a fine dinner, which consisted of homemade local specialties.

Breakfast with a wide range of local products was excellent as well as dinner. After breakfast we were ready buses that took us to the nearby exhibition center in Don Benitez. Before leaving the exhibition, I was contacted by several exhibitors, but I had no idea of ​​the size and quantity of exhibitors of the exhibition.
