IFEMA takes on challenge to host COP25
After the Government of Chile, as the incoming presidency, had to cancel the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP25) taking place in Santiago de Chile, the Government of Spain offered to hold the conference in Madrid on the same dates as originally planned from December 2 to 13, 2019. The gathering will take place at IFEMAs Feria de Madrid venue and occupy more than 100,000 m² and host 25,000 attendees from 200 countries. IFEMA is working at full capacity on organisation, to offer the best conditions adapted to the project's strict requirements. COP25 will occupy a total of six halls and the entire North Convention Centre, as well as the meeting rooms located above the halls, in addition to the rooms that make up the project inside the halls. The design that is being prepared will enable IFEMA to achieve its goal of maintaining the programme of fairs and events, most of them leisure-oriented and aimed at the general public, as has become customary in December. Assembly work for the summit is scheduled to begin on November 17, with a total of 10 days for completion of the project.
