Congress Venue
The Congress will be held at the Seville Conference and Exhibition Centre (FIBES), close to the city''s international airport.

FIBES consists of a central, modern building with a striking architecture and three extensive exhibition pavilions.

Its beautiful outside plaza with impressive waterfalls welcomes you with open arms. The central building has two auditoriums, numerous meeting rooms of different sizes, a marble lobby, three restaurants, and a cafeteria.

First floor

The three well-lit exhibition pavilions and the two outside areas are joined to the main building by a corridor where you can find all kinds of services including montage, travel agent and press bureau. The center also has two parking areas with room for 600 vehicles.


FIBES is currently being expanded by a new state-of-the-art construction that consists of three main sections:
  • An Auditorium with a capacity of over 3500 people and with a versatile space for holding several events simultaneously,
  • A multi-purpose building, which hosts a registration area, sub-committee rooms that can be set with different layouts and the catering services,
  • A ramp, which connects the new building to the current FIBES which can be used for exhibitions. Rounding off these facilities are an underground parking and three outdoor parking zones for buses.
FIBES is strategically situated at 4 km from Seville´s international airport, 5 km from Santa Justa Train Station, and 7 km from the city center. A taxi ride takes 10 min to the airport ( ¬ 20-25), 15 min to the train station ( ¬ 6-8), and 20 min to downtown ( ¬ 8-10).
