The venue for the International Gap Junction Conference 2022 is the “A Coruña Conference Center” PALEXCO (Muelle de Transatlánticos, s/n, 15003 A Coruña, Spain).

PALEXCO has become an international reference for hundreds of scientific conferences, companies, associations and agencies that have chosen to hold their events there.

Location, space, elegance and functionality are the keys to this project designed by César Portela and Ricardo Bofill, but even more impressive is the unique design of its roof, which resembles the wings of a giant seabird, in perfect harmony with the port setting and the city’s intimate historical connection to the sea.

Palexco is strategically located facing the sea and right in the heart of A Coruña’s historic center. Surrounded by the best hotels and restaurants and the most select shops, it is fully integrated in the day-to day life of the city. A place to enjoy.
