The Cartuja Scientific and Technological Park is a really symbolic facility, as it is the first case of the reuse of the grounds that held an international exposition, such as the Expo'92. Now it has a much deeper purpose, being extremely relevant to the city.
One of the main reasons why the Congress of Technological Parks that the IASP association organizes should be celebrated in PCTCartuja, besides its symbolism, is because it is an urban park. Located 5 minutes away from the center of Seville, it’s perfect for a meeting thanks to its complete facilities and its good connections to the AVE station and the airport.
Seville is the most populated city in Andalusia and fourth in Spain, with excellent weather, good transport connections and a large number of visitors every year, which makes it the ideal place to celebrate what is one of the most important international events in the field of Science and Technology Parks.
A congress like this is a great opportunity to boost the sector, share knowledge about it and make contacts, opening new opportunities for the industry players: the companies. For this reason, it is important to correctly select the place where to celebrate it and the PCT Cartuja seems like the best choice.
In case Sevilla is finally selected to host the IASP World Congress in 2020, its assistants will be able to contact with the companies that make use of the 56 buildings inherited from the Universal Exhibition, as well as the other 35 most recent, and all the infrastructure that the PCT Cartuja has.
