If you’ve ever organized a corporate event, you’ll know that it’s no mean feat. Getting it right involves a great deal of research and planning. With multiple factors to bear in mind, a successful, smooth-running event depends on the right venue.
Luckily, the beautiful Italia is home to some stunning corporate event venues to wow your team and stakeholders. We’ve compiled a list of the top corporate meeting venues so you don’t have to spend time searching for the perfect venue.
From the metropolitan Milan to the ruins of Rome, all venues are reachable by public transport and all offer wifi access. Whether you’re looking for a large convention center or convenient meeting rooms, we’ve got you covered.
What to look for when sourcing a venue
Finding the right venue involves juggling several factors. First, the venue must accommodate the right number of attendees and have suitable event spaces with the right equipment and facilities. The location should also have good transport links and sufficient parking if required.
If you’re hosting a drinks reception or a conference of several days, it’s important to think about food and beverage options, as well as accommodation if required. The overall cost, including any additional fees (important to keep an eye out for hidden costs) will also determine your venue hire.
The venue you ultimately pick will also be determined by the type of event you’re hosting. Some of the events companies hold at corporate meeting venues might include:
- Meetings with clients or customers: a meeting venue can provide a professional setting creating a positive impression and helping to build constructive relationships.
- Internal meetings or training sessions: an external venue can provide a neutral location for team meetings or training sessions, supporting productive discussions and encouraging participation.
- Conferencing or events: the right space can provide the facilities required for larger-scale hybrid events such as seminars, lectures or product launches.
- Team building activities: the ideal location for off-site training or group activities, helping to develop team cohesion and boost morale.
Let’s see what Italy has to offer.
