Practical information

The Arcachon Convention Center

Arcachon, a seaside resort on the bay of the same name on the Atlantic Ocean, was born from the salt air, pine forest scent, the train, and a stroke of genius businessmen of the last century: the Pereire brothers. From January to December, Arcachon offers different facets, as seasons dictate.

Arcachon is situated at about 50 km from Bordeaux in south-western France, close to the famous Bordeaux vineyards and very accessible by airplane and train.

Our meeting will take place at the Convention Center of Arcachon in the heart of the town and just in front of the sea. We will benefit from large spaces for the poster and oral sessions, with the very nice 500 m2 Ambassador’s room and its wide picture windows with sea view.
