This summer, we will convene in Valencia, a unique city combining the gothic historic core with modern buildings, sustainable walking paths, and notably, the waterfront. Of course, we plan to enjoy fantastic Spanish gastronomy as well – Tapas and Tempranillo!

Now, together we have a fantastic opportunity with La Marina de València, the waterfront of Valencia, to ride the innovation wave literally and figuratively. This June, we will build on the natural pull for activity near the waterfront to bolster Valencia’s public realm in creative, resourceful, and participatory ways.

La Marina de València is located –  you guessed it – on the waterfront. Specifically, it is located east of the city centre and immediately adjacent to Platja del Cabanyal (Valencia’s beach).

  • Location of La Marina de València, the primary conference location: Calle de la Aduana, Moll de Ponent, s/n, 46024 Valencia, Spain

Events will be hosted at specific points throughout the city (TBA) and easily accessible via transit.
