Spain, land of sun and beaches, tapas and wine, football frenzy and flamenco fever, and much more… no wonder it is a leading destination for leisure and business tourism. We know this first-hand: we have spent over 20 years organising team building activities and events for agencies and clients from around the world. We find inspiration in everything that surrounds us: historical monuments, our fantastic gastronomy, film celebrities, local folklore, etc. With many great destinations spread around the country, we are spoilt for choice for team building locations. Without further ado, let us introduce you to 7 of our favourite destinations to organise your team building in Spain.
#1 Madrid: a capital for team building
Spain’s capital, located in the centre of the country, is a hub for European culture and art and a web of elegant avenues and monuments. Madrid is the largest city in Spain and is a leading destination for business tourism in the world. As an event planner in Madrid, we couldn’t feel more inspired when coming up with ideas for our unique productions. Historical gymkhanas, tapas routes, team building survival events, cooking challenges… we’ve organised all types of activities for team building in Madrid.
#2 Valencia: a city by the sea
Valencia is Spain’s third largest city with a population of approximately 800.000. Located on the country’s southeastern coast, the city is often depicted by its futuristic City of Arts and Sciences and museum. However you’d be wrong to think of Valencia as nothing more than a modern city. It has a number of beaches and natural reserves such as the neighbouring Albufera Park, prime assets for outdoors and nautical team building activities. Discover some of the activities that we propose for team building in Valencia on this website. You might also like our Valencia Rallye, popular amongst DMC in Valencia.
#3 Seville: flamenco, tapas, and folklore
Seville’s reputation as a destination for MICE tourism in Spain is growing every year. If you want to empower, entertain, inspire, and educate your team all at once… then the Andalusian capital is the place for you! Overflowing with history and culture, Seville will delight your team and will be the perfect setting to organise your team building activity. The options include (but are certainly not limited to): flamenco musical team building events, dance classes, tapas routes, historical gymkhanas around the city, etc.
#4 Barcelona: a hub for team building
Barcelona, the second largest city in Spain, is also one of the most cosmopolitan cities in Spain and is known for its unique architecture, its art, culture, beaches, and events of all sorts. Like Madrid, the Catalan capital features in the world’s top destinations for MICE events. If you’re thinking of organising your team building in Barcelona or if you’re looking for an event planner in Barcelona to create 100% customised productions for your or your client’s incentive travel to Barcelona… count on Es.cultura Events! We have over 20 years of experience producing events all over Spain and have worked with many types of clients, agencies, and DMC in Barcelona.
#5 Malaga: beaches, wine routes, Picasso, and more
Located on Spain’s sunny Costa del Sol in the South, Malaga is known for its year-round micro-climate, hotels and resorts, and its beaches… a perfect setting for incentive events and team building in Malaga: beach activities, nautical team challenges, cultural activities (tapas routes, Picasso discovery routes, wine tasting workshops such as our Wine Adventure, highly popular amongst DMC in Malaga), visits to neighbouring towns such as Ronda, Mijas, and a number of other great team building locations.
#6 Cadiz and Huelva: prime team building locations
Are you looking for a destination that’s off the beaten track? Or maybe you’d like to make the most of Spain’s sunniest beaches for your team building trip? Cadiz and Huelva, in the most southwestern points of the Andalusian province, certainly aren’t hidden secrets. Both provinces are very popular destinations for national tourism in Spain, yet they aren’t very common destinations for incentive travel in Spain… and wrongfully so! Both provinces present a number of opportunities for MICE events and team building activities.
Throughout the years, we have come up with many ideas for all kinds of events, including our popular “A Rodar: Chirigotas” filmed team building performance in Cadiz which reflects the spirit of the city’s famous annual carnival. Cadiz and Huelva offer fantastic beaches and weather for a number of nautical activities and beach challenges for the more competitive team building activities, and are also great locations to experience the flamenco culture with musical team building activities, dance classes, etc.
