We have curated an exceptional programme that showcases this timeless destination as a MICE heavyweight. Join us and you'll receive a tailored schedule of 1-2-1 targeted meetings with these hard-to-reach planners - and the chance to bond with them over destination discovery activities, socialising, and networking dinners.


Our Host Venue

Villa Erba Congress and Exhibition Center
