Reinventing business travel

Revenues from the MICE segment in hotels operated by Meliá Hotels International has increased by an average of 13% over the past 3 years, with significant growth of 24% in 2015. This is a trend that will continue to be positive in 2016 thanks to the recovery of major feeder markets.

Meliá Hotels International is the leading hotel company in the Spanish market and has over 15,000 square meters of facilities for events and meetings.

Quality and product diversification are also advantages, with seven hotel brands offering creative solutions tailored to the specific needs of each customer.
