Design Center Sitges
(Centre de Disseny de Sitges)
Catalonia, Spain

Conference languages are English and German.

The City of Sitges has been historically a centre of thought and development of the notion of well-being. In the last few years, both its citizens and government have undertaken an effort to restore to the city the impulse and creativity that flourished there in the 19th century. As an example, the city is the location for a project office of the International Society of City and Regional Planners (ISOCARP) that conducts research and manages different programs dealing with the future of the cities.

The ISOCARP office is located at the Design Center, an ultra modern building in the city that the local government is dedicating as a research, fairs and workshop venue in order to guarantee the arrival of the best possible ideas to the city. REAL CORP 2009 will be one of the first events held here after a comprehensive renovation of the space that will make it more useful for both citizens and guests from all over the world.
