The city: Bilbao
Bilbao used to be an industrial city, but now a days it has been transformed into an modern and attractive city with architectural highlights like; the Conference Centre and Concert Hall Euskalduna Jauregia, where Metromeet will be held, the Guggenheim Museum (Frank Gehry), the Calatrava airport , the Metro designed by Norman Foster, and some Isozaki projects. These are examples of the sweeping vitality that breathe in Bilbao, a city in which converge tradition and modernity.
Besides all those modern improvements we can not forget Bilbao gastronomy, well-known for the quality of its products and expertise of its chefs: menus for all tastes and accessible to everyone. And of course, the famous pintxos may be tasted in traditional areas: Casco Viejo, “Pozas” and Deusto. So besides the high quality of the conference you have the possibility to enjoy a warm and friendly city, with a rich culture and a fantastic gastronomy.
The place: Palacio Euskalduna
Inaugurated on Febuary 19th 1999, The Euskalduna Conference Centre and Concert Hall is a very unique building; one of the flagships of the new Bilbao of the 21st century.
Designed by architects Federico Soriano and Dolores Palacios as a vessel permanently under construction that stands in a dock on the site of the former Euskalduna Shipyard, the Conference Centre received the 2001 Enric Miralles award at the 6th Biennial of Spanish Architecture.
