Conference Venue⯈

The 28th International Conference on Advanced Laser Technologies (ALT’20) will be held in the Congress Center of Arcachon, France. The Arcachon Convention Centre faces Arcachon Bay and consists of 1300m² of areas for holding all types of events, from a meeting for 10 people to a congress with 700 participants. A 500-seat auditorium, modular meeting rooms with direct views over Arcachon Bay, exhibition rooms, the Olympia Theatre: all you need for the successful organisation of our event.

Arcachon is the main town on the Bassin d’Arcachon, a bay of the Atlantic Ocean that attracts many visitors from Bordeaux. Less than 60 km separates the capital of the Southwest from Arcachon and its beautiful villas, clear blue beaches and delicious seafood. This is also one of the main osticulture (oysters farming) centers of France so eating oysters is a “must” when coming to the area.

Arcachon is one of the most popular sea resorts in France and in the summer, it’s flooded with tourists and locals alike. The best time to go there is either May-June or September.
