Alongside FERIARTE, an art and antiques fair held until Sunday, 25 November, this week IFEMA will be premièring two new events:

The major production "33 El Musical" will open on 22 November in an incredible ad-hoc tent built in IFEMA, which positions it as the largest temporary theatre ever built in Spain and the one with the greatest capacity. Directed by Toño Casado, author, composer and director, and performed by 28 artists, "33 El Musical" tells the exceptional story of a man who changed the course of humanity with his message of love.

Additionally, the world of the circus is back with its great white tent at IFEMA. From 23 November to 3 February, IFEMA will host the Circlassica show, which will pay tribute to all the artists who one day dared to dream, on the occasion of the 250th anniversary of the modern circus. With the help of Emilio Aragón, this show will gather tightrope walkers, trapeze artists and jugglers who, together with their live orchestra, will bring the viewer to the magical world of Nim Y Margot, "the circus".

After the success of Harry Potter: the Exhibition, which received more than 460,000 visitors, IFEMA, another great exhibition is returning to IFEMA, this time dedicated to the legendary Jurassic saga, which opened on 17 November and will be in Hall 5.1 of IFEMA until 17 February. Jurassic World: The Exhibition, created in close collaboration with renowned palaeontologist Jack Horner, includes interactive educational content, inspired by the real science that studies the DNA of dinosaurs. Since its première in Melbourne in 2016, "Jurassic World: The Exhibition" has received more than 1.5 million visitors.

 On November 23, the largest equestrian event in Spain, Madrid Horse Week, opens its doors this year with IFEMA as naming sponsor. The 6th edition of IFEMA MADRID HORSE WEEK, which takes place from Friday the 23rd to Sunday the 25th of November in halls 12 and 14 of IFEMA, is opening its doors with a programme full of entertainment. For the fifth consecutive year IFEMA is hosting the LonginesTM FEI Jumping World Cup and incorporates another top competition: World Cup Dressage, held for the first time in Spain. It also includes an International Jumping Grand Prix, CSI2*, and a new edition of the 'Reining Masters' Cup Final. Among the novelties of this edition, the Natural Dressage show by Santi Serra is a particular highlight.

For its part, Bebés & Mamás will be showcasing the big new developments and trends related to pregnancy, birth, babies and toddlers of up to two years of age throughout the 25th and 26th of November, in hall 5 of IFEMA.

Closing the month, Retromóvil will be displaying classic cars in IFEMA hall 3 from 30 November to 2 December. This is the 16th edition of an event that ended last year with the attendance of 22,000 people and is set to have more exhibition floor space this year. Retromóvil Madrid is a unique opportunity for fans of classic cars to enjoy a perfect balance between hundred-year-old pieces and sports cars, alongside other vehicles that once had a major social impact, such as the Seat 124 or the 600.


In December, other big public events will turn IFEMA into one of the main destinations for family and youth leisure. JUVENALIA, ALMONEDA, and three major electronic music concerts are scheduled: DGTL, DON'T LET DADDY KNOW, and ORO VIEJO.

With this significant programme, IFEMA is establishing itself as an exceptional space for major musical events, festivals and large-scale shows, thus complementing its line of professional events.

Throughout 2018, IFEMA has, for the first time, hosted more than a hundred fairs and congresses, specifically 110, attracting a total of 33,000 participating companies and 3.5 million visitors.
