Scottish Exhibition and Conference CentreSQUARE is situated in Mont-des-Arts, an area that today packs in a fine combination of culture, energy, business and leisure. Steeped in history, it was once a medieval palace for the Dukes of Brabant and then a centre of European power under the Hapsburgs where Belgium's first sovereign took his oath in 1831. Mont-des-Arts’ fortunes changed however and it’s wealthy streets were transformed into a slum. Eventually, its dwellings were torn down and replaced with a park which played host to the Exposition Universelle et Internationale, a world exhibition, in 1910. Everchanging, the area was rebuilt in 1958 as the the congress centre that it is today, housing the Royal Library of Belgium. Situated close to the European institutions, the Mont-des-Arts has come full circle, finding itself once again closely linked to the centre of power in Europe

The SQUARE will not only host the EFIB plenary and conference tracks, it will also provide the largest EFIB marketplace, featuring over 50 exhibitors, the 1-to-1 partnering area and the showcase theatre, showcasing all that the European biotechnology industry has to offer.

EFIB Accommodation Information

Speakers, solutions providers and delegates are responsible for booking their own travel and accommodation. Please see details below (listed in order of distance from The SQUARE) to choose a suitable hotel. Reccomendations are coming soon.. 

** IMPORTANT NOTE: It has come to our attention that a number of accommodation service providers have contacted companies supporting EFIB 2016 regarding hotel reservations. When delegates say they have already booked they are told that they need to finalise their booking by completing a form with credit card details. This generates a new booking and a 25% deposit is immediately charged to the card - this is non-refundable and any cancellation incurs a heavy penalty. These companies DO NOT represent Smithers and should NOT be given any credit card information.

Should you receive any correspondence from unauthorised organisations regarding accommodation arrangements for EFIB 2017, or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your event manager at +44 (0)1372 802 052.***
