Most people would agree that Italy is a fantastic destination for a holiday (in fact tourism is one of the country’s major industries, generating more than 10% of the national GDP) but it is also a perfect destination for business and corporate events.

It has many international airports, modern and prestigious infrastructures that guarantee high-quality service and breath-taking landscapes.

For this blog we are focusing on one city, Milan as a conference and events destination.

Where and how?

Milan is located in the centre of Europe internationally known as the capital of fashion, shopping, design and the financial centre of Italy. Also known as being a city of dining experiences and nightlife with over 450 restaurants offering the best of Milanese, Italian and international cuisine.

Given its prime location, Milan is extremely accessible, with three international airports operating flights to over 150 destinations. It also has high-speed international and national railways connections and an efficient public transportation network.

Rich in history

Milan is an ancient city rich in history, culture and art. It’s the City of Leonardo da Vinci and the Last Supper, Duomo Cathedral and La Scala Opera House which has spaces available for private hire or can be explored via a Private Tour as an incentive in addition to an event.

The City is also home to modern medical-scientific research centres, prestigious universities and nearly 90 museums; made up of art galleries and exhibitions in history, fashion, science, architecture and design.

Hotels and Venues

Milan boasts more than 380 Hotels totalling over 25,000 rooms, it offers a range of choices in style and star rating.

The Hotels are located in the heart of Milan or next to one of the major exhibition centres.

For the larger conferences there are two convention centres in Milan;

The Fiero Milano is the largest with 45,000 square metres of meeting and exhibition space, adjoining the NH Fiero Milano and located just outside the city but is easily accessible by public transport.
