The volume of congress and convention activity undertaken by IFEMA in 2013 was a major contributing factor to the improvement of Madrid’s position on the global ranking of international conference destinations. According to a list published recently by the ICCA, the International Congress and Convention Association, the Spanish capital took second place in 2013 (second only to Paris) and maintained its position as the top conference tourism destination in Spain

More specifically, IFEMA will host nine major global and European congresses this year that will be attended by over 50,000 professionals from around the world and generate 150,000 hotel stays
