As MICE planners, if there is one thing you undoubtedly know, it’s that a lot weighs on the venues that you choose for your corporate events.
And it makes sense – if you have an event at a venue where the food is terrible, there is no air conditioning, the PA system doesn’t work and the accommodation is not clean, the event will be an absolute disaster no matter how good the speakers are or how well organised the actual event is. So, getting the most incredible venue should be at the top of your priority list. To help you on this journey, we have created this list of the best hotels in Spain for corporate events:
This unusual but incredible four-star establishment is certainly high up on the list of best hotels in Spain for MICE, in fact it’s been rated as one of the top 11 business hotels in the world according to CNN. Set in Malaga, this easily accessible and unbelievable avant-garde hotel boasts 221 unique and modern rooms, a special gourmet restaurant that caters to the health-conscious, a phenomenal bar – perfect for post-conference drinks – and a whopping 1,500 m2 of conference rooms. And, as the site itself states, the Barceló Málaga “...will impress even the most discerning guest, whether with its unbeatable location, its sophisticated design or its magnificent modern facilities.” So if you are eager on setting your next conference in Malaga, this is the right venue for you!
Hesperia Tower Hotel & Convention Centre
Set in the business district (conveniently located between the airport and the city centre) of one of the most eclectic and creative cities in the world, the Hesperia Tower Hotel and Convention Centre, is also one of the tallest buildings in the area and sports some of the very best views of Barcelona. Designed by Richard Rogers (the same architect behind the Pompidou Center in Paris), the hotel has 280 luxe rooms on 29 floors, an exclusive health club, a magnificent spa, a modern restaurant, and incredible auditorium that can seat up to 500 delegates.Pre- and post-conference delegates have ample to do at the hotel itself, but if venturing out and exploring Barcelona is a priority for them, then a free shuttle ride from the hotel will take them straight into the heart of the city or the Gava beach. If you are looking at conference venues in Barcelona, then this is certainly one of the best hotels in Spain for events.
Set in the centre of the bustling, vibrant capital city, Madrid, this incredible establishment has earned its place on our ‘best hotels in Spain for conferences’ list.
