New, Better and Different

Sustainability & Legacy are strategic aspects for IFEMA MADRID. 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. If you are interested I can give you examples of the sustainable actions that IFEMA has implemented as well as the list our ISO certifications. On other hand, the Madrid Convention Bureau was the first tourist body in Spain to implement legacy projects in congresses held in the city. To date, they have collaborated and/or promoted the organisation of legacy projects aimed at citizens, such as campaigns to promote healthy living habits or training in first aid (ESTRO 2021). The MCB has developed PLUS a platform that allows the generation of specific sustainability and CO2 reports for each meeting held in Madrid.

The versatility of the North Convention Centre Rooms and the exhibition being placed in the Vestibule, centrally located between the meeting rooms, rooms were two key factors for confirming the event at IFEMA
