Ten years after the project was completed, the high-speed finally arrives in Granada. Its maiden voyage took place on the 25th June, with the assistance of Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez, and the Minister of Development, amongst other personalities from the political and civil society. Not even a month after, Renfe (the state-owned company for freight and passenger trains) had already sold 100k train tickets to Granada.
The Spanish high-speed rail network is the most extensive rail network in Europe and the second worldwide, only after China. It is possible to travel between Madrid and Granada in 3 hours and 10 minutes, between Madrid and Seville in 2 hours and 20 minutes and between Madrid and Malaga in under 2 hours and 25 minutes.
It goes to show that, if you are coming on a business trip or a corporate event to Andalusia, and you are not able to find a direct flight to any of the 5+2 Andalusian airports (we have yet to find that scenario!), the high-speed will bring you here in a short amount of time so you just can focus on what really matters – your business trip.
Your Corporate Event in Granada
Granada has everything you need to organise a small, medium or a large event – from luxurious 5* hotels with meetings and events spaces to a state-of-the-art Conference Centre with capacities of up to 2,000 seats. Besides its events and trade shows side, Granada is home of the Alhambra, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and also the most-visited attraction in Spain. But Granada is also home of the Sierra Nevada, mainland Spain’s highest mountain (after the Canarian Teide) and a world-renowned ski resort and winter sports hub, yet only 90 minutes away from the Mediterranean Sea (also linked to Malaga by dual carriageway in less than 2 hours)
If you are planning an event or are thinking about the location for your next corporate or incentive trip, Andalusia has everything you could think of – culture and traditions, outdoor activities, world-known gastronomy and the best infrastructures in Europe. We are leaders in tourism worldwide, including MICE tourism (updated 17/09/2019).
Meridional Events, your local DMC for MICE and Corporate Events in Andalusia will be delighted to organise your meetings, conferences, special interest groups or team building activities in fantastic locations such as Granada, Marbella, Seville, Malaga and other locations at the Costa del Sol.
