The trade fair is part of the larger FSMS framework and shares space with Foro de las Ciudades, srr and esClean.

Who Are You Going to Meet?
In short, you’re going to meet everyone who works in urban planning. TECMA brings together a large variety of professionals from related fields that guarantee exhibitors opportunities to expand their reach and diversify revenue streams. The biggest group of visitors are representatives of central, regional and local administrations, but they don’t exhaust the list. You’ll connect with consulting companies, laboratories and research centres, large, small and medium-sized industries and sports and leisure facilities.
They come, because TECMA and the rest of FSMS are the main platform for important exhibitors to showcase their products. One of the most important participants is the AFAMOUR association, which manufactures street furniture and children's playgrounds at a national level and has its own showroom with a selection of innovative and sustainable products. The showroom highlighted the work done by:
- the Association of Green Infrastructure Management Companies, ASEJA;
- the Spanish Association of Public Parks and Gardens, AEPJP;
- the Technical Association for Waste Management and the Environment, ATEGRUS
Additional Value of Attending
The MADRID CITIES FORUM is one of the big-ticket items at TECMA, which for 21% of trade visitors is the single reason for attending the trade fair. The Forum emerges as a significant space for addressing the challenges of urban planning and enhancing the habitability of cities. Speakers shed light on the pressing issues faced by municipalities and delved into a range of important topics that are integral to urban development.
Key areas of focus included the 2030 Agenda, urban diversity, clean and innovative mobility, participation and proximity, human well-being and health, climate change and resilience, housing and rehabilitation, culture and urban tourism, public space and regeneration, and urban networks. By exploring these subjects, the MADRID CITIES FORUM aimed to foster innovative solutions and strategies for creating more sustainable, livable, and resilient cities.
The MADRID CITIES FORUM packed a solid programme in 2022 that saw 260 speakers and had over 70 cities from Spain, Portugal, and Latin America be part of the conversation. Attendees had a choice between four discussion sessions, which included more than 50 round table discussions, addressing 24 urban issues. These discussions were organised under four main areas of debate: urban planning, renaturalisation, cities to live in, and circular economy.
The forum is also where the inaugural Tree Award ceremony takes place, honouring a city for their work in the field of Urban Nature and the innovative management of green spaces. In 2022, the winner was the city of Salamanca.
Another well-received part of TECMA was the return of Tecma Verde, which is a small exhibition dedicated to good urban practices. Tecma Verde features twenty projects focused on improving urban spaces in areas such as renaturalisation, urban planning and the Circular Economy. And you definitely don’t want to miss the Circular Economy Working Group, which runs three sessions by twenty organisations on circular economy.
