Why Madrid?


Felipe II chose Madrid as capital for the first time by its privileged location in the centre of the Iberian Peninsula. Visit Madrid and discover how easy it is discover the rest of the country from there. On one hand, excursions from Madrid can take you to historical cities such as Toledo, Segovia and El Escorial or enjoy activities in the natural environment in the Sierra de Guadarrama. On the other hand, the International Airport of Madrid- Barajas and bus and train stations are ideally connected to the rest of the country. Any national destination is more than 8 hours away and airlines make it even easier to get around Spain.

Living Madrid

Bustling, energetic and vibrant. From Puerta del Sol and Gran Via boulevard to the Plaza of Spain, Malasaña, Chueca and the Real Madrid stadium, not only does the crowd ignites the life of Madrid, but also its attitude of pure enthusiasm.

Cultural Activities

The only problem you have in Madrid is choosing what to do as it has so much to do. Whether it is heading to visit the magnificent collections of Museo del Prado, Reina Sofia and Thyssen Bornemisza, there are dozens of museums, cultural centres, art galleries, theatres, cinemas, concert halls, ‘tablaos’ flamencos, parties, etc. Take part in the expo:QA'18 Cultural Evening on the 4th of June that we are organising for conference participants!


What most impresses newcomers to Madrid 99% of the time is its nightlife. The Spanish schedule begins and ends later than the rest of Europe and even more so in Madrid. Having dinner at 10pm the night just starts when pubs are closing in for example London and continues until the sun rises. Join us at the expo:QA'18 Networking Dinner on the 5th of June and experience one of the best dining venues that Madrid has to offer.
