The MPGD 2019 Conference will take place at the Espace Encan, located close to the historic center, near the old harbour, called now the "bassin des grands yachts". It was built on the old fish market, place of memory of Rochelaise fishing. Most of the premises have a sight onto the port and the sea, including the lunch area. The conference room (168 m²) comfortably has a capacity of 150 seats. There is a 468 m² hall to be used for poster sessions and coffee breaks, also with a direct view onto the famous tower at the entrance of the port and on the city.
