General Information


The Congress will be held at the Seville’s Conference and Exhibition Centre (FIBES), close to the city international airport. The Conference Centre is located on a 165,000 m2 site, with 60,000 m2 being constructed.

The FIBES centre consists of a central, modern building with a striking architecture and three extensive exhibition pavilions. Its beautiful outside plaza of almost 2,000 m2 and its waterfalls welcome you with open arms. The Conference and Exhibition Centre building has two auditoriums, numerous meeting rooms of different sizes, a marble lobby of 1,500 m2, three restaurants, and a cafeteria.

The three well-lit exhibition pavilions of 7,200 m2 each, and the two outside areas of 13,000 m2, are joined to the main building by a corridor where you can find all kinds of services (montage, travel agent’s, press bureau, etc.). The enclosure also has two parking areas with room for 600 vehicles.

FIBES is strategically situated at 4 km from the airport, 5 km from Santa Justa Train Station (with a High-Speed train line, AVE), and 7 km from the city centre. A taxi ride takes 10 min to the airport (€ 15-20), 15 min to the train station (€ 6-8), and 20 min to downtown (€ 8-10).

There is also a public service of buses and suburban trains with a number of available connections between the City Centre and the Congress Venue. Local transportation details will be provided here at a later date.
