Short Bio Jose Miguel Gimeno
I lived in New York for a while and came back to Spain where I worked for other companies. In 1995 I decided to create my own company and founded MTGlobal with my business partner Teo Torres. I love meeting and working with people. I listen to your experiences and stories. Listening is the art of learning, and this is what I do each day at MTGlobal.

Testimonial MT Global
Marian, you are the perfect person to work with. I love MT Global! Thanks so much for all your hard work to make our events a success.
Why the Canary Islands?
As a stepping stone between to Latin America and Spain, the Canary Islands became Spanish in the 15th century, but always kept a hint of the laissez faire and happy attitude of our Latin neighbors.
The seven islands(most famous - Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, Fuerteventura and La Palma) are known for their perfect climate, the endless beaches, great night life and lovely food.
Each island has its own charm, but all are beautiful in their own way. You can find beaches that stretch for miles, some of them white - some of them black, volcanoes and the lava outbursts that create new land, crates, lush green slopes, wonderful shops, cosy cafes. Famous landmarks are El Teide (the highest mountain of Spain), the picturesque historic town of La Orotava, the National Parks and Mount Timafaya.
You can surf, glide, sail, snorkel, trek, swim, go clubbing, the possibilities are endless in the Canary Islands. We would love to put together a great program for you and your clients.

Canary Islands program idea
Lanzarote burnt by fire, has developed a new and unique landscape, hard to find elsewhere. The similarity with a moon and cosmic landscape, contrasted by its beaches, it's just a matter of miles and dimensions.
Because of its natural beauty and its warm climate throughout the year, Lanzarote, as well as infrastructure and impeccable professional services, allows us to organize all kinds of events, offering services such as active or traditional cultural visits, a big variety of teambuilding and aquatic activities, special dinners, etc..
Lanzarote, an ideal destination for all kinds of meetings, whether for business or pleasure.
In arriving at the airport, the staff of KEY DM (providing that the customer contract) will welcome the group and accompany their vehicles ahead. If necessary, our staff will also assist with any problem that could have been presented.

WELCOME TO LANZAROTE!
The south and the volcanoesThe excursion starts off in from our hotel in direction of the National Timanfaya Park of Timanfaya.
Whoever comes to visit the island must go to visit the Timanfaya National Park a unique surrounding created by Nature during the almost 6 years eruptions of 1730/1736.
The Park is filled with myriad volcanic landscapes unfolding one after another. At the Islote de Hilario (Hilario's Islet) geothermal demonstrations are held periodically to show visitors the effects of up to 400º centigrade temperatures found just beneath the surface.
After this visit we continue towards the south west coast where we will enjoy a little walk to approach a natural lagoon formed by sea-water filtering in from the ocean in el Golfo.
Then we will drive you into the Valley of La Geria., which landscape is unmistakable and its layers of lava are the most distinctive on Lanzarote, exhibiting a unique system of grapevines growing in pits hollowed out of the lava cinders and protected from the wind by walls built of lava-stone. The legendary golden, refreshing Malmsey wine is the heady result of this method of cultivation.
We'll stop at the Bodegas Stratvs for the visit of this gorgeous Winery (one of the most modern winery in Europe) and have lunch there as well.
Lunch wine cellar and restaurant
The architectural style of the Bodegas STRATVS was designed with the utmost consideration for the surrounding landscape and its status as a protected area. On the farm, located in the Barranco del Obispo (the Bishop's Ravine), the old farmhouse has been preserved. The winery and its installations have been built underground, thus preserving the ravine's original topography. Local materials with a low visual impact were used in its construction, such as volcanic stone, iron and wood. Here we will have the opportunity to taste some wines of this wine cellar with local cheese before having lunch.
Morning Bike tour around the hidden corners of El Retiro Park. Located the city center is entirely surrounded by present-day city life and offers a lot of hidden treasures. During our tour we can visit: a Persian hunting lodge, the house of cows, the glass palace, the only statue in the world of the devil, or the beautiful lake, where we can change the bikes for boats and enjoy a nice and relaxing rowing boat ride. We will finish with a glass of cava with a picnic of Spanish tapas.
Lunch will be served in one of the trendiest restaurants in Madrid located nearby the Retiro Park.
Afternoon at leisure for shopping around Serrano neighborhood.
Gala dinner at Casino de Madrid, one of the best venues in a historical building of the City Center, which offer the Menus of a 2 Michelin *, Paco Roncero.
Dinner Jameos del agua
Los Jameos del agua is a large cave formed by the collapse of the roof of the tunnel that begins at the La Corona Volcano. César Manrique carried out his first project here, bringing out the natural beauty of the place and harmonising his creation with the surroundings, including an auditorium installed in a part of the volcanic cave. In the middle, a natural lagoon whose green waters are home to a unique crustacean, the white crab (minidopsis polimorpha), a miniature being and the only such example existing, blind doubtless from evolving in a totally dark environment over the millenniums. No one knows where these creatures came from, possibly the remnants of survivors trapped in the cave during one of the numerous upheavals that occurred thousands of years ago.
We will first visit this fantastic place and then enjoy the dinner.
