For the 10th edition of the I-COM Global Summit we are setting the stage in the Andalusian city of Malaga, the gem of the Costa del Sol.
Transforming itself in recent years, Malaga has gone from the gateway to the beaches of the Costa del Sol to a vibrant coastal destination of art and seafood with a Mediterranean vibe.
Thanks to its superb natural surroundings, gentle climate and carefully planned investments into boosting the cultural and artistic heritage, Malaga became a tourist Mecca attracting visitors from around the globe. It boasts over 40 museums, numerous art galleries and a much loved art district - Soho. It’s the birth place of artist Pablo Picasso, philosopher Solomon Ibn Gabirol and actor Antonio Banderas to name just a few.
The city of centuries long traditions and vibrant new museums, Malaga is lying at the feet of the Montes de Malaga, on the northern side of the Mediterranean Sea. Its history began around 2,800 years ago, making it one of the oldest cities in Europe. Still preserved remains and archeological artefacts from different eras in its history are a valuable sight in the centre of the city, which reaches the harbour to the south.
It has a delightful pedestrian centre, innovative restaurants and boutique hotels, giving it a bohemian atmosphere. With all the recent changes, Malaga is successfully keeping its authentic Andalusian feel.
