    Event with friends

    The first Madrid Agency Forum brought together 35 European MICE agencies. On the agenda: 700 mee­tings, exchange – unique Madrilenian hospitality.

    From the heart. For a long time there wasn’t much to report about the meetings industry of Spanish capital Madrid. Barcelona as the young, wild city by the sea attracts a lot of attention.

    Dear Readers,

    are we just talking, or are we already taking action?
