17 May FIBES II: Seville’s newest Conference and Exhibition Centre
Welcome to FIBES II, the latest and most modern gem in Seville’s splendid landscape. Inaugurated in 2012, the new Conference and Exhibition Centre known as “FIBES II” has quickly become one of the most prominent venues in Europe, welcoming all types of MICE events from all over the continent and across all industries: Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Exhibitions. The impressive centre boasts a 3,200-capacity state-of-the-art auditorium with a 620m2 stage that can be divided into two or three different auditoria for simultaneous use, plus a 2,500m2 exhibition space, a 2,000m2 catering area, an underground car park with 900 spaces, and over 50 breakout rooms that can be used for press, video conferencing, TV, VIP purposes, and dress rooms.
The centre is the latest extension to the expanding FIBES complex. The original FIBES I building first opened its doors in 1989 to host the ever-growing annual Iberoamerican Feria of Seville (la Feria Iberoamericana de Sevilla), but since then has welcomed a great number of national and international congresses and events from many industries and countries. Both FIBES I and FIBES II buildings are connected by a single footbridge, allowing the complex to be used as a single venue or as two independent premises. The original building FIBES I was designed to host large exhibitions and trade fairs, and counts three huge exhibition halls of 7,200 m2 each. These three halls are linked by a wide corridor to the conference centre building, where 2 more auditoria and breakout rooms can be found. All of which brings the entire FIBES complex to a gigantic 90,000m2 with over 40,000m2 of exhibiting space, 5 auditoria, and a total of 71 meeting rooms. More information on the amenities can be found on our page dedicated to FIBES’ premises.
In addition, FIBES is ideally located halfway between Seville’s international airport San Pablo and its main railway station Santa Justa, making it easily accessible to visitors travelling nationally or from overseas. Thanks to its state-of-the-art amenities, its official certifications in tourism quality and environmental management, and its great location, Seville’s imposing Conference and Exhibition Centre is fully equipped to welcome any conference, trade fair or show of any size through its doors.
