Auditorium

3 auditoria will be equipped with state-of-the-art technology including interpretation booths. They include an integrated interactive system in order to foster debates between panellists, on-site participants and virtual audiences following the discussions via social media. Each auditorium has a capacity of 542 people.

Lab debate rooms

There are 12 lab rooms altogether: 1 large debate room (120 pax), 6 debate rooms and 4 project rooms (70 pax), and two brainstorming rooms (40 pax). The lab rooms will foster a more intimate atmosphere for creative brainstorming sessions or more direct and spontaneous exchanges on best practices, lessons learnt, evidence-based analysis and outcomes. There will be no interpretation service available in the lab debate rooms. Graphic support will be provided for brainstorming sessions.

Meeting rooms

Three large meeting rooms are available, with a capacity of 36 people each. Equipped with a screen and a projector, these spaces will host closed meetings, presentations, breakfasts or lunches to facilitate networking opportunities.

Six smaller rooms, with space for up to 12 people per room, offer a more intimate space for networking opportunities and short meetings among forum participants.

Press Conference room

The media centre, with the press conference room and the press studio, will be the focal point for journalists, bloggers and social media staff.
