The Conference will be hosted by Steigenberger Hotel Sanssouci, Potsdam, Germany

Potsdam, located southwest of Berlin, is a former seat of the royal Prussian residence and a UNESCO World Heritage Site with an exquisite garden. The symbol of Potsdam is Sanssouci Palace. Frederick the Great had it built according to his own sketches in the middle of the 18th century and it was soon given the nickname of the 'Prussian Versailles'. The palace is only five minutes' walk from Steigenberger Hotel Sanssouci, an ideal starting point for a tour of Potsdam.
