Turin, a rosy future for the convention market

2013 has been a year full of successes for Turismo Torino and Provincia Convention Bureau. In fact, despite of present-day difficulties, the Piedmontese capital has achieved 29 conventions which will bring to the city 22,000 participants, generating about 66,000 overnight stays. This news has been published by La Stampa, which points out that the economic return of the events obtained last year will generate between 19 to 32 million Euros.

Another great news is that the convention calendar of Turin is also already full of appointments for 2014, especially in the scientific sector. Bio-Europe Spring, the European convention of biomedicine, will be held next March at Oval Lingotto for which 1,800 representatives are expected; whereas in April will be held the European Federation of Pyschoanalysis convention and in September that of the International Association for Engineering Geology, with 1,300 participants. With regards to medical conventions, these start in February with Società Italiana di Psicopatologia (Italian Psychiatric Society), which will call to the city 1,500 people, whereas in June will be held the convention for the Società Italiana Neuro-Psico Farmacologia (Italian Neuro-Psychiatric Pharmacologic Society), with 1,000 delegates.

A much anticipated event, also for its media attention, is the International Editor's Convention Wan-IFRA scheduled between the 8th and 11th June. For this event, 1,200 newspaper Directors and Editors are expected from all over the world. This is a prestigious acknowledgement for the City of Turin, considering that this convention has been missing from Italy since 1988 in Rome. The mayor, Piero Fassino, has satisfactorily declared: "After having achieved the world-wide convention for the Chambers of Commerce in 2015 and for Landscape Architects in 2016, the City has obtained another international appointment of great importance. It confirms how much Turin is considered ever more as an attractive and welcoming location for national and international conventions, offering facilities, accommodation capacity, and adequate organization for a vast array of professionals and visitors, with very positive results also for its tourist flow".
