Palexco and Palacio de la Ópera, two of the most representative social and cultural spaces in A Coruña, presented their results at the end of 2022 with very positive data: the numbers of events and attendees are already higher than those of 2019, before the pandemic.
Increases above 2019 in both cases
A total of 91 musical events were held at the Palacio de la Ópera -38 by the Galician Symphony Orchestra-, 9 company events and 12 social events, a total of 112 events attended by more than 120,000 people and generated an increase of concerts of 40% compared to 2019.
Similar is the case of Palexco, where a total of 153 events were held in 2022: 14 congresses, 87 business events, 14 cultural and 38 social. Thus visiting the space, a total of 78,802 people. This means a 33% growth in turnover compared to 2019, just before the stoppage caused by covid 19, and despite the fact that in the first quarter of 2022 some problems caused by the pandemic were still dragging.
The forecasts for 2023 are very positive in both cases, with few dates already available at the Palacio de la Ópera for this year.
Our director of Palexco and Palacio de la Ópera, Juana Abellaneda, positively assesses these closing figures for 2022, and expects an optimistic future for this year: “We are very satisfied with the closing of 2022, having exceeded the levels of before the pandemic is quite an achievement in our sector. In addition, we have very good expectations for 2023, which we hope will already be the year of definitive recovery. We are optimistic, since we have the best venues in A Coruña for holding all kinds of events and an unbeatable human team”, says Abellaneda.
