  • “El sol” returns to the sun

On 21 November it was announced that on 8 and 9 June 2023, the festival of advertising and creativity will be held in Malaga.

El Sol, the Ibero-American advertising festival will be held in Malaga for the next three years.

The Andalusian city will host the 37th edition of this festival after its transition through El Circo Price and its birth in 1986 in Marbella.

Miguel Olivares, Director of El Sol: “Malaga has always been the origin and will always be a special place for El Sol. Like us, the city has flourished, transformed and embraced innovation and modernity, values that we at El Sol have always promoted. We face this new edition with great enthusiasm to present all the novelties we have prepared and with some more surprises in store”.

Malaga, a city of culture, art, gastronomy and now also technology and digitisation, has become a great host for a festival like El Sol, sharing our innovative, inspiring and creative character.

From the APCP, we congratulate them for returning to Malaga, a city that welcomes us every year with great affection to celebrate our advertising film production activities within the framework of the film festival.
