ST sparked visitors’ curiosity as the only tourist organisation among numerous art galleries. This meant that there was plenty of interest in the Swiss exhibition among Spanish culture travellers. The contemporary Spanish cultural magazine Yorokobu produced a 54-page brochure especially for the fair. It showcased Switzerland’s cultural heritage and innovative power in an unusual way, for instance with bookable cultural offers. ST staff distributed over 8,000 of these brochures during the fair.
