The nearest Metro station to IFEMA is Feria de Madrid (line 8: Nuevos Ministerios-Aeropuerto T4). The exit is opposite IFEMA’s South entrance. This line connects the venue to the different terminals of Madrid-Barajas Adolfo Suárez airport.

Line 8 connects with other Metro routes at Nuevos Ministerios, Colombia and Mar de Cristal stations, which offers excellent connectivity to and from anywhere in Madrid.


Madrid’s extensive bus network allows you to get to Feria de Madrid from anywhere in the city.

There are two urban bus routes operated by the Municipal Transport Company (EMT):

  • Line 73: Diego de León - Feria de Madrid
  • Line 112: Mar de Cristal-Barrio del Aeropuerto
  • Line 122: Avenida de América-Feria de Madrid

Intercity buses:

  • Line 828: Universidad Autónoma-Alcobendas-Feria de Madrid-Canillejas. 


Feria de Madrid has road connections to Madrid’s main access and ring roads: M11 (exits 5 and 7), M40 (exits 5, 6 and 7) and A2 (exit 7). The South, North and East entrances of the fairground give direct access to the different parking areas.


Official Taxi ranks are located outside the main venue entrance and outside the North Convention Centre.
