Madrid for Business Travelers

Madrid is the capital and largest city in Spain.

The Spanish capital is a prime tourist destination in Europe and a business hub for the country and Southern Europe.

Madrid is home to many local corporations (large and small) and also serves as the Spanish headquarters for many international companies, including airlines, energy companies, media, retailers, fashion brands, consultancy and technology.

Madrid is also one of the main cities for start-ups in Spain (the other being Barcelona).

With many local corporations expanding west of the Atlantic, this Spanish city is also the main business link between Europe and Latin America.

Madrid has one of the main airports in Europe. Madrid-Barajas (MAD) is the busiest airport in Spain and one of the main airports in Europe. It serves as the main hub for Iberia (the Spanish national carrier) and connects the Spanish capital to Europe, the Americas, the Middle East, and Asia. See accommodation near Madrid-Barajas.

Madrid-Norte, La Castellana Avenue and the area around Chamartín concentrate most of Madrid business areas.

IFEMA, Madrid’s big trade fair and events venue is located northeast of the city. It holds around 80 trade shows a year and it’s one of the premier event complexes in Europe. See accommodation near IFEMA.

Public Transport in Madrid is extensive and reaches pretty much every corner of the city. It consists mainly of metro lines, commuter trains, light rail and buses. Taxis are widely available in most districts and car rental companies have branches at the airport and around the city’s main stations (Atocha and Chamartín).

Some of Madrid’s top business landmarks include the AZCA complex in La Castellana and the Cuatro Torres business area in Madrid-Norte. Some of the large companies headquartered in the Madrid Metropolitan Area include Accenture, Indra, Telefónica (Movistar), BBVA, IBM, PwC, Amadeus, Deloitte, Endesa, El Corte Inglés, Editorial Planeta or Repsol.
