EclipseCon Europe 2012 Venue
Forum am Schlosspark
Forum am Schlosspark is one of most modern conference centers in the Stuttgart region. Built in 1988, the Forum has hosted many large enterprise, association, and cultural organization conferences, as well as performances by international ensembles and artists. The Forum is surrounded by historical baroque architecture and is a short walk from the city center.
Film- und Medienzentrum (FMZ)
Some sessions will be at the FMZ rather than at the Forum. The FMZ is behind the Forum on Königsallee, the street that runs along the east side of the Forum property.
