Bilbao is the capital city of the Basque country, and a driving force of social and economic development. Situated in the Bay of Biscay in the North of Spain, Bilbao is ready to host any kind of convention or professional meeting. Historically, the city has played host to many conventions with the Bilbao International Trade Fair Centre each year attracting important trade fairs and shows.
Bilbao’s cultural calendar is hard to resist: it has two of the best art galleries in Spain, six themed museums (including the famous Guggenheim), countless contemporary art exhibitions and a continuous series of shows and performances, such as opera, symphony orchestras, theatre, and dance. Avant-garde art, fashion, music and leisure are an everyday affair in Bilbao, a city filled with trendy shops, great pop and rock concerts, and excellent venues for live performances.
