ISPAD 2016 will be taking place at the Valencia Conference Centre (VCC).
The Valencia Conference Centre is situated on the major access route into the city from the north east. The Avenida de las Cortes Valencianas is one of the main avenues leading into the modern metropolis of Valencia. The Centre is ideally located. It is close to the international airport at Manises and has excellent links into the city centre by metro, bus and tram.
The Valencia Conference Centre also has the perfect solution to the parking problem. There is a large underground car park with closed-circuit television monitored by our security service and space for up to 600 cars. There are also two smaller outdoor car parks with room for 22 coaches or buses and 45 authorised vehicles.
The Conference Centre has also disabled access to any part of the building.
Less is more – The VCC energy policy
The numerous initiatives which have been implemented since the building was opened in 1998 have managed to reduce energy consumption by almost 1,000,000 kwh compared to the amount used ten years ago, thus avoiding the emission of nearly 740,000 kg of CO2. The VCC has been recognized by the European Federation of Quality Management as an Ecological Committed Organisation (ECO).
The use of more efficient technology such as low-energy, long-life light bulbs in all the rooms, the use of presence detectors and the installation of optical fibre to illuminate the ornamental fountains, have meant a reduction in energy consumption and lowered replacement and maintenance costs in the facility.
The rational use of water includes sensors to regulate the volume of water, timers for the taps and treating the water in the fountains which all contribute to saving natural resources.
Gourmet Catering & Espacios, together with the Valencia Conference Centre, are committed to the environment and to preserving our surroundings. Accordingly, its dishes include organic products.
