The Kingdom of Spain includes two important archipelagoes: the Canary Islands in the Atlantic Ocean and the Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean Sea. Spain was the second most visited country in the world, recording 82 million tourists which marked the fifth consecutive year of record-beating numbers. Spain's geographic location, popular coastlines, diverse landscapes, historical legacy, vibrant culture, and excellent infrastructure made the country's international tourist industry among the largest in the world.
The most important places for MICE are the cities, Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, Bilbao, Seville, Malaga, Marbella, Palma de Mallorca and Alicante. An excellent tourism infrastructure, international airports and hotels along the entire coasts provide many more magnificent venues.
