The 2016 conference season comes to life at the Venice Lido

13 April 2016

Following the successes of 2015, the 2016 conference season comes to life with the  STROKE (European Stroke Conference), to be held from April 13 to 15 at the Palazzo del Casinò at the Venice Lido. This recognizes and celebrates the great commitment of VELA S.p.A. in the promotion of the most important congress hub in the Metropolitan City of Venice and perhaps the entire region.

This first event will welcome the presence of 450 international delegates who for three days will populate the Palazzo del Cinema, Casino Palace and Sala Darsena.

A season in 2016 that will alternate between national and international "corporate" events and scientific conferences, concentrated in particular during the periods from April to June and from mid-September to late October at the Venice Lido. This activity enables us to showcase the convention complex of the Venice Lido in the period not used by the Biennale Foundation for the International Exhibition of the Cinematographic Arts, thereby making an important economic and promotional contribution to the various hotels, businesses and services on the island.

Piero Rosa Salva, Sole Director of VELA, commented: "2016 sees the growing role of the Lido as a congress venue, through its cogent action of promotion in trade fairs and targeted contacts with key national and international stakeholders through the renewed focus of the professionals of the Lido. The efforts of the municipal administration led by Mayor Brugnaro for the redevelopment of the Piazzale and its consistent positive communication give further incentive to work throughout the seasons of the next three years, for which important appointments are already under contract and others are being finalized."
