This January we celebrate 4 years, and what four years!!In January 2018 we opened our first space, Vortex Playa in Cabanyal (Valencia) and it was a year of hard work. We created from scratch a olid, interesting and welcoming community. We celebrate 3 art exhibitions with Bay Backer, meetings with Internations, Networking Events for Business Owners, and much more. And we put all our enthusiasm, affection and effort into each step. In January 2019 we did a first birthday celebration in style (which lasted till sunrise!) and from then on the first recognitions began to arrive:
