One of the hallmarks of Bilbao is its football team: Athletic Club. A team with more than 100 years of history, a legendary stadium, recognised internationally and a unique philosophy, as it only has players who were born, raised or trained in the Basque Country.

The San Mames football ground is a benchmark worldwide, both for its architecture (considered the best sports building in the world) and the facilities available.

In addition to the traditional Welcoming Cocktail and IoT Week Gala Dinner, we are also organizing (on 8th of June) several cultural excursions. Take the opportunity to explore Bilbao with other conference participants!
