Space Generation Congress 2012 Venue



The venue for the 11th Annual Space Generation Congress is located in the historical city of Ercolano, in the western foot of the Mount Vesuvius, 10km away from Naples, Italy. The chosen place where the Congress will be held is the Museo Archeologico Virtuale (MAV). This great placement will offer the delegates not only a comfortable and unforgettable participation to the Congress, but also the possibility to experience the museum itself and get lost on the ancient times. It will be a great contrast experience to be in such a historical emplacement discussing the future of space sector!



The venue offers a high-quality Auditorio room where all the delegates will gather for the common plenary sessions, as well as very well equipped smaller rooms for the working group sessions. The galleria will serve as the lunch area, and wi-fi is available in this area.
