The IDUG 2023 EMEA Db2 Tech Conference will be held in Prague, Czech Republic, at the Prague Congress Centre (PCC).
The Prague Congress Centre has a very rich and varied history. The construction of the neofunctionalist building began in 1976 and was completed in 1981 as one of the largest and most modern social centers in Europe. Since then, it has become a recognized venue where many great international congresses and conferences are organized, as well as cultural, social and sport events.
In the last years the Prague Congress Centre went through significant changes, thanks to which it presents itself as a modern venue that keeps up with the technological innovations required for hosting events on international scale. With an exhibition area of 13.000 m², 20 halls and 50 meeting rooms for up to 10.000 people and a beautiful view of the city panorama, it offers a unique, meaningful and quality venue for all kinds of events.
The Prague Congress Centre draws energy from renewable resources and has implemented several energy-saving measures in order to reduce overall energy consumption.
