The Forum

The Spain – United States Forum is an annual event that brings together the members of the United States - Spain Council and the members of its counterpart, the Fundación Consejo España – EE.UU., with leaders both from the Administration and the private sector to discuss topics of common interest.


Since 1995, the Forum offers a unique space for dialogue among Americans and Spaniards and it has proven to be a useful tool to boost bilateral relationships.


This special edition of the Spain – United States Forum has a modern digital platform (accessible through the web or mobile app) in which you can follow and comment the different activities live, send questions to the speakers, respond to those raised by the moderator and network with other participants.


Participation in the Forum is limited to members of both organizations and expressly invited guests who register in this web before June 25.
