Bilbao is a welcoming, cosmopolitan, modern city that combines the features of a unique cultural heritage with a new aesthetic in which the avant-garde shares the streets with art to create a remarkable urban landscape.

Today, Bilbao is an internationally recognised urban landmark due to the strength of its innovative transformation based on the respect and integration of its industrial past – principally the iron and steel industry, and shipbuilding. The icon of this metamorphosis is the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao with its impressive architecture, the work of Frank Gehry.

The city's regeneration includes the recovery of industrial land in areas such as Olabeaga and Zorrozaure (a project by the prestigious architect Zaha Hadid).

Following its resurgence and transformation, Bilbao has become an international city of reference for cultural, commercial and business tourism.

Welcome to Bilbao!


The AMICE Congress location is the Euskalduna Palace Conference Centre.

The Euskalduna was the second building built in the urban area of Abandoibarra after the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao. Opened in 1999, it was designed by architects Federico Soriano and Dolores Palacios in weathering steel as a symbol of the last vessel built in the old Euskalduna shipyard, which had occupied this space for decades. 

The conference centre won the Enric Miralles award for architecture at the 6th Spanish Architecture Biennial in 2001 and the Apex Award – presented by AIPC (International Association of Convention Centres), which covers 57 countries all over the world – for the “World’s Best Congress Centre” in 2003. This 58,200 m² multi-purpose complex is located in the heart of the city of Bilbao is and within 22 minutes walking distance of the Congress hotel.
