Diverse, tolerant, multicultural, creative, innovative, sustainable… These are just a few of Madrid’s attributes. Without a doubt, however, the hallmark of the city and the trait that best defines it is its welcoming nature, which owes itself to the open, inclusive character of the Madrileños. It’s a quality that makes you feel like you’re at home no matter where you come from. Madrid isn’t just a destination, it’s an experience to be lived to the fullest.
The city has been given a place on UNESCO’s World Heritage List, which recognises sites of outstanding universal value, thanks to the Landscape of Light, an extraordinary urban setting around Paseo del Prado and El Retiro Park where culture, science and nature have existed side by side since the 16th century. The Landscape of Light is the first site in the city of Madrid to receive this distinction and the fifth in the Community of Madrid, along with the Monastery of El Escorial, the historic quarter of Alcalá de Henares, the cultural landscape of Aranjuez and Hayedo de Montejo beech forest.
Spurred on by new urban development projects such as the remodelling of Plaza de España, and thanks to the arrival of new international hotel chains, Madrid’s hotel offerings are undergoing a profound transformation, particularly in the premium segment. Premium is also a fitting description of the event and meeting venues in Madrid’s range of MICE offerings, and for the experiences deeply rooted in its tradition and history that the city makes available to visitors.
Having won several international awards such as Leading Meetings & Conference Destination at the World Travel Awards 2021, Madrid has firmly established itself as a hub for economic exchange, innovation and technology, a safe place which is, first and foremost, uncommonly welcoming, and the ideal place to do business.
Professionals from all over the world trust Madrid as a destination in which to present their work and advance their careers while enjoying the city’s unique way of life. The chance to walk through the narrow streets of its city centre, unwind outdoors at the many hotel rooftop bars and restaurants and enjoy its exceptionally varied gastronomy is reason enough to choose Madrid for your next meeting. Discover it and make the most of this city where business comes to life.
