We are happy to welcome MiCo – Milano Congressi as a new tmf-connect partner! From now on, you regularly read relevant news and information about the congress centre which is managed by Fiera Milano Congressi.

MiCo is the most modern convention centre in Europe. Designed in 2002 and doubled in size in 2005, the extension in 2011 placed Milano Congressi among the largest conference facilities in Europe and worldwide, catering for up to 18,000 people in 70 fully appointed conference rooms with permanent control booth.

Featuring two plenary rooms, one with seating for 4,000 and the other for 2,000 and an Auditorium that seats 1,500, it is the ideal venue for large-scale performances and for international conferences requiring a large number of rooms. In the same way, the exhibition halls offer 54,000 sq.m of exhibition space and can also be set up as extra plenary rooms accommodating more than 5,000 people.

Focusing on large international conventions for both associations and the corporate sector, specialising in medical congresses and offering a capacity unequalled in Europe, MiCo is one of the biggest world players in the congress business. This position has enabled it to re-launch Milan as an international congress location and activate the virtuous circle of related economic effects.

In 2014, MiCo was centre-stage in European politics for the six-month Italian presidency (July-December 2014). A great many appointments were held in the congress centre, including the meeting for European ministers for justice and home affairs, followed by cooperation and development, the environment, labour, defence, infrastructures and transport and energy.

A busy six-months agenda that came to a head in mid-October, with the tenth ASEM Congress(Asia-Europe Meeting, where there was the participation of the European Union, the ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) and other countries, including Australia, China, Korea, Japan, India and Indonesia. This is a more than satisfying trend for MiCo,  that endorses the strategies so far followed.  MiCo is backed up by its location, since Milan is served by three international airports and is a natural crossroads for markets in Northern Europe, the Mediterranean and the Orient.

MiCo is also online on the most popular, main social media networks (Facebook, YouTube, Twitter) where it dialogues openly and interactively, aiming to become a go-to info point for all international users looking for information and ideas regarding the world of congresses.
