Facilities: The Benin Marina Hotel will be entirely booked by the Conference and therefore participants will be present all over the place to attend sessions, to go to restaurants and go back and forth to their rooms.

Exhibition booths will be located in the lobby on the ground floor of the main building of the hotel, or on the terrace of the Multifunction Main Building, where the scientific sessions, evening workshops and special meetings will take place.
