Welcome Reception

The first event of HEAd’19 will be the welcome cocktail reception held at the emblematic restored 50’s building Palau Alameda, located at the Avenue “Alameda of Valencia”, settled in the 17th century as the green lung and a reference space for the city.

The “cool and elegance of Valencia” meets at Palau Alameda. Its sober and rationalist style impresses from the gardens of the Turia River, background scenery and views that can be enjoyed from the terrace of the building.

Let’s meet at Àtic, the newest and most vibrant terrace lounge of Valencia city!.
