The venue for the Basque Ecodesign Meeting 2007 is the Euskalduna Conference Centre and Concert Hall in Bilbao. 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 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.
The different Basque Ecodesign Meeting 2017 plenary and other sessions will be held in the different rooms of the Euskalduna Conference Centre. Each of the rooms has been identified with a colour code to streamline movement around the venue during the two days of the conference. The colour code is indicated both in the programme of the different sessions to be held and on the accreditation to be handed out to each of the delegates (according to the sessions chosen at the time of registration).
The list of sessions and rooms where they are going to be held are set out schematically below.
