The Conference and Music Hall opened in
1999 is a tribute to the shipyards that
formerly were on the same site and that represented
one of the major economic forces in the city.
With the form of a ship and a modern design
in its environment with the combination of different
materials, the Conference Hall combines musical
activity (the opera season in Bilbao is one
of the most complete of Europe) with the holding
of symposia and congresses both national and
international, in this manner complementing
the Bilbao Exhibition Centre.
There are also additional facilities and services such as cafes, restaurants, business centre, etc.
Conferences, seminars, opera, theatre, concerts and a wide range of activities can be held at the Euskalduna Palace, a large convention centre that covers an area of 25,000 m2, with a Main Hall that can seat up to 2,164 people, a smaller room that can seat up to 613 people with a 190 m2 stage, and a further 15 fully equipped rooms.
