IFEMA MADRID: A hyperconnected fair organization

Herobaner Visión

With a very clear vision

We want to make Madrid, and by extension Spain, the reference in the world economic scenario, favoring the generation of wealth through our leadership as a source of inspiration, knowledge and creation of business opportunities.

We seek to maintain our position of national and international leadership in the organization of trade fairs, conventions and all types of leisure events, through operational excellence and quality services.

IFEMA MADRID International, more global than ever

The international impulse of IFEMA MADRID represents one of our strategic objectives, both for our own fair activity carried out in Madrid, as well as that carried out in other countries, where we export IFEMA MADRID´s knowledge and experience in the management and commercialization of events and spaces.

International Fairs

IFEMA MADRID hosts half of all the international fairs held in our country every year, and is Spain’s leading trade fair operator when it comes to staging important events of this nature.

New markets

We promote activity in new markets, strengthening our international position with 16 IFEMA MADRID delegations operating in 28 countries.

Open to the public

Concerts, festivals, exhibitions and leisure activities have made a big impact on the IFEMA MADRID agenda in the last few years.

One of our commitments is to bring IFEMA MADRID closer to people and generate significant experiences at fairs, events and activities that connect with the general interest of those around us.

Therefore, we dedicate 365 days a year to bringing our audiences everything that interests them: business, knowledge, leisure, experiences and future, especially future.

A window to tomorrow: Innovation

Improving the experience of our visitors is one of our priorities, and therefore at IFEMA MADRID we have made a great technological commitment to lead cutting-edge developments in the digital transformation of fairs.

We work and promote the use of new technologies to generate experiences.

To do this, through the R&D laboratory at the IFEMA MADRID LAB Foundation, we are developing a prototype Augmented Fair and we encourage research into new generation technologies. We promote projects aimed at improving the productivity of the public and private administrative organization.

IFEMA MADRID, more than a responsibility

Our main concern is to be an active agent in the creation of a new model of social, economic and environmental sustainability, creating economic and personal value for all those around us.

At IFEMA MADRID we are aware of our transmission capacity and therefore, we lead the promotion of sustainability actions that affect the improvement of the environment, both economically, environmentally and socially. In partnership with our clients, at fairs we encourage the development of actions and initiatives with a direct and measurable impact on our community.

The area of Quality and CSR aims to develop and promote an Integrated Management System that helps us meet the requirements of the most demanding international standards in environmental, energy and sustainability.
