Because of all this Madrid has become one of the larger European hubs for industry and culture, with many multinational companies basing themselves in this city of four million. With this also comes a plethora of conventions and events, including Cibeles fashion week, Arco (art), Salón del Automovil (cars), SIMO Network, Fitur (tourism), Madrid Fusion (culinary)

In Madrid the perfect balance of old and new is struck: you can feel bits of the 16th century in the parks, monasteries, cathedrals and as you walk through Retiro park.
