Madrid to welcome a corporate trip of 3,000 Chinese workers

The Tiens Group, who in 2015 brought 6,500 employees to France has chosen Spain for its 2016 annual corporate trip. The trip which is awarded to a large part of Tiens’s workforce by CEO Li Jinyuan, one of China’s wealthiest businessmen according to Forbes, will visit both Madrid and Barcelona over a period of five days. The costs are set to be astronomical as the c. 3,000 visitors will be arriving on 70 planes, staying in over 2,000 hotel rooms and will require 80 buses for transportation during their stay. Tiens was founded in 1995 by Jinyuan with interests in finance, tourism, biotechnology and logistics and today employs more than 8,000 in 190 different countries. The selection of Spain as their preferred destination this year has highlighted its growing connectivity with China as well as the recovery of Madrid’s tourism sector.
