Villa Erba on Lake Como boasts of a rich history of hosting important events for prestigious automotive companies. It is indeed a favored destination by top brands like Ferrari, Porsche, Scania, Hyundai and Volkswagen. Recently it added another feather to its cap by hosting the Ducati Motorcycles Global Dealer Conference from 14th to 17th October 2017.

The opening ceremony took place on 14th October with a dinner for 250 American retailers. On the evening of 16th October, a great gala dinner was organized with over 1200 invitees and hosted at the central pavilion. Ducati used this venue to showcase an exclusive premier of new models of Borgo Panigale to thousands of new dealers across the world. Some of these models will be revealed to the press and public only at the EICMA 2017. Hence Villa Erba organized the event for four days maintaining strict exclusivity and privacy for its clients.

Piero Bonasegale, General Manager of Villa Erba states: “We are very proud to have also hosted the famous Ducati motorcycle home for this prestigious event. The bond with the world of motors is now clear and more and more consolidated, thanks to all the famous brands that we welcomed.” Just recently, in August this year, Villa Erba had successfully hosted the world premiere of the new Volkswagen crossover T-Roc.

It’s easy to see why Villa Erba is such a sought after option for hosting premiere launch events of automobiles. It boasts of expansive grounds, the flexibility to accommodate any group size and the state-of-the-art modern amenities. All this thanks to a perfect balance, that this amazing venue features between the modernity of the exhibition center and the elegance and rustic charm of the ancient Villa. In addition, the staff at Villa Erba is most proficient and attentive and will ensure that the event is conducted smoothly till the very end.
