IFEMA hosted a large number of events in 2013 including three major congresses organized by national societies in September, October and November: the 36th Congress of the Spanish Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (SEBBM), the first Spanish Mammary Congress and the 11th Spanish Oral Surgery Society Congress (SECIB), which was making its debut at IFEMA.

The first of these, SEBBM, closed its 36th edition having staged around 100 conferences attended by some 1000 people from throughout Spain. Notable attendees included the 2012 Nobel Prize Winner in Chemistry, Brian K. Kobilka, and the 2002 Nobel Prize Winner in Physiology and Medicine, Sydney Brenner.

The Spanish Mammary Congress, where the key themes were breast pathology and breast cancer, attracted over 1,200 attendees and featured some 30 societies and associations including the Spanish Cancer Prevention Society (AECC) and the Spanish Breast Cancer Federation (FECMA).

Finally, the SECIB programme featured 39 international and national speakers who shared their expert insights with around 1000 participants including professional hygienists and prosthetists and students in their final years of university training.
