Madrid: world's top meetings and conference destination at the World Travel Awards

Madrid was named the World’s Leading Meetings & Conference Destination at the 26th edition of the World Travel Awards 2019 (WTA).

Madrid has beated Las Vegas -ending the city's six-edition winning streak- and ten other competitors including Paris, Dubai, Hong Kong and Abu Dhabi. Before reaching the world finals, Madrid also took first place in the “Europe’s Leading Meetings & Conference Destination” category for the second year in a row at the regional edition of the World Travel Awards in June.

Almudena Maíllo, the councillor responsible for Tourism at Madrid City Council, and David Noack, director of Madrid Convention Bureau, collected the award from WTA founder Graham Cooke at the ceremony held in Muscat.

“This award for the city of Madrid recognises the work, investment and professionalisation of both public bodies and the private sector, with the aim of demonstrating that Madrid is a global leader in MICE sector amenities,” said Almudena Maíllo.
