Dates and Opening Hours

As an exception, the 40th edition of ARCOmadrid will be held this year from July 7th to 11th in pavilions 7 and 9 of IFEMA MADRID, dedicating the first three days exclusively to professionals, and opening its doors to the public at the weekend.

IFEMA MADRID has drawn up a strict safety protocol that includes the necessary measures to order the flow of visitors and their mobility; to establish capacity controls, safety distancing, the elimination of direct contact via digital registration, and the incorporation of the latest technologies for health safety and visitor counting, and very particularly for air renewal in the pavilions.
