    Now that you know what styles of meeting rooms you’ll find in Madrid, we’re sure the burning question is, how expensive will it be? Well, that really depends on you and the type of venue you book, its amenities, how long you book it for, and even the time of the year.

    4) The Best Catering for Your Meeting Space in Madrid

    An underrated but important part of organising any meeting is getting the food right! While several meeting venues in Madrid have an in-house catering team, it’s always good to know what to expect in terms of cuisines as well as the caterers that can provide them. This will help you make an informed catering decision for your meeting in Madrid.

    • Goyo Catering: Tapas are a perfect catering choice for meeting rooms in Madrid and no one quite does tapas like Goyo Catering. Not only does this renowned catering company focus on using the finest seasonal ingredients, but they also specialise in crafting a menu with traditional Spanish flavours and contemporary culinary artistry. Some must-try dishes on their menu include the iconic patatas bravas and the delicate gambas al ajillo.
    • Grupo El Escondite: Of course, you can also go the authentic Spanish route with an event catering company like Grupo El Escondite. They specialise in traditional Spanish cuisine with a modern twist and you’ll find that most of the dishes on their menu, from paella to Iberian ham, capture the essence of Spain’s culinary heritage. We especially recommend adding their exclusive chorizo-stuffed dates wrapped in bacon to your event catering menu. It’s the perfect blend of sweet and savoury that Madrid is known for and we’re sure your guests will be impressed!
    • Medems Catering: If you like Spanish food, Medems Catering is another event caterer worth checking out. They use a blend of fresh ingredients and innovative presentations to really bring out the Mediterranean flair on their menu. Their menus reflect the region's vibrant culinary heritage, transporting your meeting to the sun-kissed shores of the Mediterranean. Their seafood paella with saffron rice, succulent shrimp, tender calamari, and mussels is definitely worth a mention!

From elegantly plated dishes to innovative gastronomic concepts, they're known for their attention to detail and dedication to creating a feast for the senses. You must add their signature Iberian ham platters to your event catering menu. These thin slices of perfectly aged ham accompanied by an array of artisanal cheeses and olives are the perfect appetiser to showcase the essence of Spanish culture.

    5) After-work Ideas for Your Meeting in Madrid

    There’s so much to see and do in Madrid, it would be a shame to send your meeting attendees straight back to their hotel rooms after your meeting in Madrid.

    Instead, why not take the networking one step further with these cool after-work ideas?

    • Flamenco cooking class: It’s hard to pick just one between two of Madrid’s most famous pastimes, flamenco and food, so we’ve got an idea that brings together the best of both worlds. Book a flamenco-themed cooking class for your meeting attendees where they can learn to cook traditional Spanish dishes while swaying to the rhythm of flamenco music.
      • P.S. If you’d like to skip the flamenco and only do the cooking, check out these Spanish Cooking Classes for some fun team-building.
    • Host a rooftop party: Madrid is known for its gorgeous weather and we highly recommend taking full advantage of it during your stay in the city. Organise a rooftop party by booking one of Madrid’s many terrace bars that let you enjoy the weather while providing a stunning view of the city’s skyline. Sip on signature cocktails, engage in heart-to-heart conversations, and toast to a successful meeting against the backdrop of the city's glittering skyline.
    • Go on a tapas tour adventure: Gather your team and embark on a tapas-hopping journey through Madrid’s lively neighbourhoods. Wander through cobblestone streets, stopping at cosy bars to savour a medley of traditional tapas – from patatas bravas to jamón ibérico. Share laughter, stories, and plates as you immerse yourselves in the city's culinary culture.
    • Sunset segway tour: Glide through Madrid's picturesque streets on a sunset segway tour. Discover iconic landmarks while enjoying the changing hues of the sky. It's a unique way to unwind and explore the city's beauty from a different perspective.

    6) How to Power up Your Meeting Breaks in Madrid

    No matter how riveting the topic of discussion is at your meeting venue in Madrid, your participants can get tired. That’s why, it’s important to schedule timely meeting breaks with fun activities to revitalise and energise your meeting participants.

    Here are some ideas to make use of those precious pauses during your meeting in Madrid.

    • Spanish siestas: You can never underestimate the importance of a power nap and lucky for us, Spanish siestas are a big part of the culture in Madrid. Have a designated area with sleep pods at your meeting space where meeting attendees can recharge by unwinding. A brief moment of rest can work wonders for focus and productivity.
    • Have some creative energisers: Add some creativity into your breaks with mini-workshops or interactive activities. Whether it's a quick painting session, a trivia game based on Spanish culture, or a group dance class, these engaging experiences can invigorate your attendees' minds and foster a sense of camaraderie.
    • Encourage mindfulness moments: Bring a touch of zen to your meeting breaks with mindfulness activities. Arrange yoga sessions, meditation corners, or even quick guided breathing exercises. These moments of tranquillity can help attendees refocus and approach the rest of the meeting with renewed clarity.
    • Technology detox: Similar to mindfulness moments, have some tech-free zones at your meeting space in Madrid. Provide books, puzzles, or board games to allow attendees to disconnect from screens and engage in analogue activities that stimulate their minds differently.
