5. Airports in Spain: The airport of Málaga is one of the biggest airports in Spain, so you can find all kind of flight companies travelling there, even most of the low-cost ones (Ryanair, Vueling, Easyjet…). There are other airports not very far away from Málaga, but you need to go from there to the city center and from the city center of the city to Málaga, what it can be very time demanding: Granada and Sevilla are the closest cities (130 Km and 200 Km, respectively), and Jérez and Almería (that are even more far away). Please, do not hesitate to contact us if you need more detailed information about the connections between these cities and Malaga.
6. Hotels: Hotel reservation form should be submitted directly to the Eurostars Malaga hotel (if you are interested to stay at the Eurostars hotel) by the 29th of August 2019. For the MC Members and Substitutes of ENEC we recommend to receive first the Official Invitation of the ENEC event and after proceed with any reservation.

Málaga has been incorporating the concepts of sustainability, innovation and culture into their strategic plans for many years. There is a constant exchange between visitors and the government’s tourism services, so that Málaga can do more to meet the needs of visitors.
Sustaining it all
In terms of sustainability, Málaga works in all spheres – it has installed public LED lighting, offers over 20 bike hire stations and created bike lanes that now add up to over 40km. The city has installed smart watering systems for parks and gardens in order to save water and has introduced an Air Quality Sectoral Plan to reduce air pollution, monitor pollen levels and improve noise quality. Málaga has also upgraded street cleaning equipment and has worked on better waste separation in the city centre.
In terms of nature, Málaga has much to offer. The city has almost 50 hectares of protected natural areas, 60 hectares of botanical gardens, more than 400 hectares of green space and 5 beaches. Málaga revitalised many of their natural spaces, such as its wetlands, creating ideal spots for bird watching and nature walks.
From sunny beaches to a city of culture
Málaga is quite literally a city of museums. Within just two decades, the city has gone from having 4 museums to having 37 – the city’s exhibition space thereby went from 400m2 to 35.000m2. Many old buildings and their surroundings were transformed into vibrant, cultural spaces, like Málaga’s old tobacco factory and its Tabacalera neighbourhood, or the city’s art district, Soho. Málaga has successfully transformed itself from a city known for its sunny beaches to a city of art and culture.
