MICE Offering in Spain

Spain offers a wide range of destinations, which cover the organisational needs of all kinds of congresses, conferences, trade fairs, incentives, and other international events.

Our offering is so extensive that it perfectly meets event planners’ various needs. Our resources and attractions ensure high participation and meet the high expectations of international participants.

Spain offers great destinations: global tourism leaders (such as Barcelona and Madrid), modernist cities, villages in beautiful natural environments, and charming coastal towns.

Any event planner can find the suitable environment and infrastructures to organise a spectacular and highly productive event.

All Spanish destinations are fully interconnected, which makes it easy to combine different cities or towns for incentives programmes and other corporate events.

Convention Bureaux

All Spanish destinations have a Convention Bureau – a department specialised in meetings and events. International event planners can trust these bodies as an impartial partner that will provide advice on the various infrastructures and resources available at the destination, as well as on special activities that add value for international participants.

Meeting Venues

Spain has a wide range of meeting venues. Most of these are highly versatile, multi-use facilities, equipped with the latest technology and audiovisual equipment.

Event planners can chose from among more than 40 conference and congress centres. Some of these are highly contemporary examples of avant-garde architecture, such as the San Sebastián Kursaal, or the work of world-famous architects, such as Norman Foster (Valencia) and Santiago Calatrava (Oviedo and A Coruña).

In addition to meeting venues, there are many auditoriums, multi-use venues, trade fair premises, and other non-conventional and alternative venues, such as universities, schools, museums, municipal buildings, sports centres, and other special venues.


Spain has varied, renovated hotels. There are more than 16,000 hotels, of internationally renowned quality.

Accommodation in cities is mainly 4- and 5-star hotels. The entire sector makes more than 350,000 hotel beds available to the market.

Of particular interest, due to its charm is the Parador Network. These are 90 unique, charming hotels distributed across Spain. They are strategically located in castles, monasteries, and palaces, and can help to achieve the perfect atmosphere for corporate meetings and events.

Special venues

All Spanish destinations have a wide range of special venues, historic or landmark buildings where amazing social events, welcome cocktails, or gala dinners can be held. Hold your event in such charming locations as wineries, castles, museums, palaces, theatres, or old monasteries.

Incoming Agencies

As a result of Spain’s extensive experience managing tourists and events, all destinations have a wide range of receptive agencies (PCOs and DMCs) which will help you with the event logistics.

These are receptive agencies with extensive experience, used to effectively manage all kinds of meetings and events. Their added value is that they are able to coordinate and make the most of local providers to cover the various event needs, such as communication, catering, audiovisual media, event hostesses, translators, stand assembly, stage design, and transport.

The excellent Spanish MICE industry professionals ensure that events are productive and with no surprises, achieving participants’ satisfaction.
