The Istanbul Convention & Exhibition Centre (ICEC)

'Istanbul Lutfi Kirdar - ICEC', the very first and the leading convention and exhibition centre of Istanbul, has been the driving force of the international meeting industry for almost a quarter of a century. 

Being located at the heart of the city’s so-called Congress Valley, all participants of FEBS2025 will find a suitable hotel or lodging in walking distance of the Congress venue.  

The area offers various alternatives for accommodation, dining, shopping, historical and cultural activites and of course a view of the Bosphorus. 

The meeting rooms and the main auditorium have been selected to ensure a compact meeting experience where participants can find the posters, exhibition, meeting rooms and catering areas altogether in one location.
