The SÚZA is a purpose-built conference centre, recently completely refurbished. It is situated in Bratislava, north-west of the city centre, within about 30 minutes walk, the same by trolley bus, 10 minutes by taxi.

 

The centre has a web site containing a lot of useful information: www.suza.sk

Key features are:

  • One large auditorium (300 seats) and one smaller (70 seats)
  • Several small meeting rooms (we will be using two)
  • A large vestibule, suitable for informal meetings and social events
  • A restaurant and bar
  • A limited number of inexpensive, but comfortable, hotel rooms with en suite shower

We will be installing wireless networking in the vestibule area and the rear of the large auditorium.
