It’s been a while since I came back from my trip to Villa Erba at Lake Como. In March this year, I travelled to Italy to meet our partners Gabriella Gentile (Meeting Consultants), Francesca Schiatti (responsible for events in Villa Erba) and Eleonora Bresciani (Sales & Marketing Manager at Lake Como Events Network). I’ve written several articles about my stay – see for example, and my interview with Francesca:

Of course, I also talked to Eleonora to learn a bit more about Lake Como Events Network.

Lake Como Events Network brings together the key players of the MICE and tourism industry on Lake Como: the network consists of hotels, venues (Villa Erba is the largest one) and companies that provide different services (logistics, transportation, advertisment etc.) and DMCs. All those are dedicated to the organization of a variety of different events, from conferences to meetings, from incentives to corporate celebrations. The Network is a unique reference point on the territory, offers exclusive and customizable services and is 100 % free of charge.

Eleonora emphasized that the network follows two aims: One is to give support to the event planners. They can send their requests and the team of Lake Como Events creates a full package for them so that that event planners don’t have to send different requests, just one! The other aim is to promote the area Lake Como as a destination for events. Eleonora: “Villa Erba is the largest in the network but it is important to present Lake Como as a destination.”

The Network offers more advantages: at Lake Como there is a hotel association which is part of the Network. So special prices can be guaranteed. Most hotels in the Lake Como area are part of the network: all in all 1,500 hotel rooms are available in 3, 4 or 5 star and 5 star luxury hotels.
