Madrid, second city in the world for congresses in the ICCA ranking

For the first time ever, the city of Madrid is 2nd in the prestigious ICCA ranking. For the 2013 edition, the capital has moved up from fourth to second place, thus moving onto the podium of the most valued international conference host cities at world level, and remaining at the forefront of meetings tourism in Spain.

Madrid has not only moved up in this classification, which contains data on 1,678 destinations and is a benchmark in the conference organising sector, but it has also increased its number of ICCA-approved conferences. In total, the city has reached 186 conferences – a figure representing 13% more than in 2012-, a year in which Madrid also beat its own record and reached fourth place.

This is the result of the firm commitment of the City Council, through Madrid Destino and the Madrid Convention Bureau, to the MICE tourism sector in Madrid. Intense international promotion work and collaboration with the Madrid tourist industry are the keys that have allowed the city’s organisational capacity, and its excellent infrastructures and resources for holding events and meetings, to be acknowledged.
