Bilbao and the venue

Bilbao is a cosmopolitan, open, welcoming, lively, elegant and modern city awarded with the Prize for Best Urban Practises in 2010, among other relevant international awards. The city is today the result of an historic process of renovation and reinvention, leaded by the impressive Guggenheim Bilbao Museum and its breathtaking architecture.

Bilbao is a city on fashion and a probe of this is its condition of venue for several major events in 2018. The European Rugby Champions Cup, the World’s 50 Best Restaurants Competition awards, considered the Oscar ceremony of world gastronomy, or the MTV EMA 2018, the European Music Awards of the MTV channel, are only some of them.
