BCO Madrid 2013 Coming in May



Coming up in May, the 2013 BCO Annual Conference in Madrid offers a varied plenary and seminar program featuring world class industry professionals discussing special issues facing Spain and Europe in the coming months.

Madrid Conference

Slated to take place from May 15th through 17th at the Hotel Hotel Meliá Castilla, Madrid, the British  Council for Offices has put together a program to  allow delegates to learn more about Spain’s challenges and how local developers banks, and office occupiers are coping. Of course a big part of the conference will be presenting Madrid and opportunities there.

The focus of this year’s event is actually on seeing and understanding Madrid as the locals do. Madrid life revolves around a combination of work, parties and relaxation, and so the BCO conference will simulate this in securing great venues like the historic Casino de Madrid, for delegates to visit.
