The seventh edition of the Best of M.I.C.E Networking Forum will be held in Venice from 23rd to 26th April with an estimated attendance of 120 international decision makers from the Meetings & Events Industry.

Angelo Faloppa, President of the Welcome2Venice Convention Bureau – the official body for M.I.C.E promotion in Venice – says, “For Venice, the Best of M.I.C.E is of key importance since it enables some of the most influential M.I.C.E. decision makers to experience what Venice has to offer for corporate events.

Although Venice already attracts more than 25 Millon people every year, we want to increase the number and the quality of the M.I.C.E events and, to this end, we are happy to have been able to persuade the organizers to select our city; the Best of M.I.C.E will help us to reach a better positioning in this segment and gain an unrivalled competitive advantage by allowing decision makers to personally evaluate our destination for their forthcoming events.”

Laurent Fuchs, C.E.O of ABC Corporate Business Solutions, the company organising the Best of M.I.C.E Nertworking Forums explains: “For this edition, we will open doors to new exhibitors and in particular American and Asian companies and we will achieve maximum visitor diversity by welcoming hosted buyers from Germany, the UK, France, Northern European Countries, Switzerland and Italy but also the USA, Russia, India, China and Brazil. We are also welcoming key experts from the industry and in particular specialists in strategy, organisation, and management but also in communication, cost optimisation and motivation.

This event is made possible by the support of our international partners such as Reed Exhibitions and local organizations and suppliers: Welcome2Venice Convention Bureau, Hilton Hotels, Vela Spa, Ca Sagredo, Gastaldi, Lady Gio and VTP. We are convinced that the choice of the destination (Venice is ranked by many organizations as the most beautiful city in the world), combined with the highest level of decision making level among hosted buyers, quality international suppliers and a selected team of industry experts will guarantee the success of the Forum which, this year, celebrates its fourth anniversary, a day that coincides with the tenth anniversary of the ABC group.”
