The congress will take place in the Euskalduna Conference Centre in Bilbao, Spain. 

The Euskalduna Conference Centre is in the very heart of the city, just a few minutes from Bilbao’s international airport and with excellent connections via road, rail and sea. 

It is within walking distance of most of the city’s hotels, and stands close to solve Bilbao’s major museums (the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, the Fine Arts Museum and the Ria de Bilbao Maritime Museum). The city also offers an attractive range of shopping, eating and leisure amenities. 

The building was designed by architects Federico Soriano and Dolores Palacios to resemble a ship under construction, because it stands on the site formerly occupied by the Euskalduna shipyard. It won the Enric Miralles award for architecture at the 6th Spanish Architecture Biennial in 2001.

This 58,200 m² multi-purpose complex is located in the heart of the city of Bilbao, close to the international airport.

It hosts a wide range of economic, business, academic, political, institutional, social and cultural events. It is the home of the city’s opera season, organised by ABAO (Friends of the Opera of Bilbao), one of the most highly renowned in Spain and indeed Europe. It is also the home base of the Bilbao Symphony Orchestra (BOS), which was founded in 1920 and has been performing since 1922.

The building contains a range of venues for meetings and entertainment purposes (an auditorium, congress halls, meeting rooms, offices, foyers and a splendid exhibition hall) along with service areas featuring storage space, cloakrooms, dressing rooms, rehearsal rooms, etc. 

The complex has a car park for 475 vehicles and is adjacent to a taxi rank and a tram stop of the city’s modern tramway system.
