  • It is an interesting place with really unique interior designs of the stairs. While it is understandably supposed to reflect the history of Bilbao, it becomes terribly confusing for foreigners to navigate to the meeting rooms. Picture Harry Potter and the magical moving stairs.. while it is not the exact concept, it does give the same feels of not knowing which floor you will end up on next. At times, you may even look like a fool in front of other clients for taking a staircase route that goes a longer way, than a simple one. Then again, the complexity of the navigation difficulties may serve as a conversation starter.
  • Great conference centre. #ESRA2019
  • When it was inaugurated back in 1999 it had quite an impact in Bilbao. The city didn’t have at that point any modern/contemporary music house where the acoustic was a key factor and the experience the public received was the main factor. And all that change with this building. I performed many times myself in this building and I can confirm how well conceived the different spaces inside are. For the artist there are many small rooms with bed and sofas, a nice and spacious cafeteria. For the audience there is two bars where they can get pintxos during the show, and a very nice and famous restaurant besides the main entrance. As I’ve mentioned before, the acoustics are excellent; and the organ as well. This music house is at the moment house and host of Bilbao Symphony Orchester and ABAO (Opera).
  • Good enough conference center overall. Acoustics are fine in almost every room. But it's very easy to get lost in all those "Hogwarts like" stairs and easy to lost between very spreaded rooms. Also there was an escalator working toward bottom floor without any counter one working upwards and that's just ridiculous in my opinion.
  • Superb architecture, very wide spaces, amazing location. The right place to take a meeting! (we were 1700 people during GSEF 2018 meeting in October)
