About the BestCities Global Forum
The BestCities Global Alliance is gathering industry thought-leaders, international associations and partner destinations under one roof in Madrid.

Scheduled conveniently after IBTM, which takes place in Barcelona from 30 November until 2 December, the Global Forum promises an opportunity for delegates to learn about inclusive meeting and event design, drawing insight from projects delivered on the ground in Madrid.

These learning and knowledge-sharing experiences will be immersive, providing delegates with some much-anticipated in-person engagement after 18 months of working from a laptop screen at home.
