Three hundred hotels, seventy thousand rooms, millions of night stays per year and above all, the excellent work done by thousand of certified professionals. These are the numbers that support in a precise way what AEHM stands for.
As the Corporate Association for Hotels in Madrid we represent a sector key for tourism, hotels, which is also one of the strongest drivers for employment and wealth generation in Madrid. It is a sector with a high grade of expertise where quality is must that can´t be waived.
AEHM has a mission that is based on two sides very well defined. On one side, we deliver services to our associates such as counselling on different areas, the latest information regarding the newest regulations of the sector, formation and promotion of Madrid as a touristic destination. On the other hand, we defend the interests of almost three hundred hotels of all categories and sizes, from big 5 star hotels to smaller hostels that are present in Madrid´s Community.
We are the indispensable interlocutor with the different private and public administrations and institutions, business associations, trade unions and chambers of commerce. We do this task with efficiency, responsibility, clear objectives and, if necessary, with forcefulness. Because the challenges the sector makes us face today require a professional response.
