FIBES, SEVILLE EXHIBITION AND CONFERENCE CENTRE
Seville is the capital and largest city of the Spanish autonomous community of Andalusia and the province of Seville. It is situated on the lower reaches of the River Guadalquivir, in the southwest of the Iberian Peninsula. Seville is approximately 2,200 years old. The passage of the various civilizations instrumental in its growth has left the city with a distinct personality, and a large and well-preserved historical centre.
Seville’s assets as a well-equipped meeting and conference city does not end, by any means, with its monuments, culture and leisure. Quite the contrary, Seville offers a complete range of hotels and restaurants as well as numerous companies specialised in made-to-measure services for conference organisers and exhibitors.
The Conference and Exhibition Centre of Seville (Palacio de Congresos y Exposiciones de Sevilla), usually referred to as FIBES, is the conference and exhibition centre hosting the EACR 2022 Annual Congress. The centre consists of two buildings, FIBES I and FIBES II, which are connected by a footbridge. In 1989, FIBES (an acronym that stands for Feria Iberoamericana de Sevilla, Spanish for Ibero-American Exhibition of Seville) moved to the building purposely designed by Álvaro Navarro Jiménez.] In September 2012, the centre was expanded with FIBES II, a building designed by Guillermo Vázquez Consuegra that includes a 3,550- seat auditorium. Several social, cultural and industrial fairs are regularly held in the FIBES facilities, as well as national and international congresses. In June 2002, the venue hosted the 91st EU Summit, and in 2007 it hosted an informal meeting of NATO. In 2022 it will be the EACR’s turn to hold its annual congress at FIBES.
