2022 Partners

We would like to thank the following organisations for supporting the 2022 European Social Services Awards:


Málaga City Council

Málaga is today one of the most desired tourist destinations in Spain. To its privileged location and climate, Málaga has been able to add a first-class cultural and museum offer, with over forty museums, including the Museo Picasso Málaga, celebrating Málaga as Picasso’s birthplace, the Centre Pompidou Málaga, the CAC Málaga, the Museo Carmen Thyssen or the Museo de Málaga, among others.

Málaga has therefore become an essential place to visit for cultural tourism, to which has been added, more recently, the commitment to innovation, to become a Smart Tourist Destination. Málaga City Council is firmly committed to innovation as a tool for progress and development and is working with institutions such as the University of Malaga or the Technology Park of Andalusia (PTA) to develop an innovation ecosystem.
