Three successes for Florence: the Tuscan Capital has infact secured three important conventions for 2015. It is estimated that the three great events will produce a total turnover of 3 million Euros, an economic impact of about 1,3 million Euros and will generate about 11,000 overnight stays among the local hotel facilities.

Woeld Engineering Education Forum (WEEF) arrives to the city from the 20 to 24th September 2015 after having been hosted by other metropolis such as Singapore and Dubai. The event will bring to the Centro Congressi Firenze Fiera  about 1,500 participants from all over the world with the aim of encouraging the interaction and confrontation among professional, on engineering planning and formation. For its candidature, supported by  Firenze Convention Bureau, Firenze Fiera and AIM Group International (for logistic support), the Dipartimento di Ingegneria Civile e Ambientale dell’Università di Firenze collaborated actively with a fundamental role as scientific partner for the acquisition of the event. The WEEF 2015 will be conceived as a group of conferences and events to be attended not only by the International Federation of Engineering Education Societies but also many other important companies and associations from all around the world,. 

Also for 2015 is scheduled the EMEARC Annual meeting (Europe Middle East and Africa Regional Council) of OCLC (Online Computer Library Centre) – the largest non profit co-operative organisation of libraries of worldwide importance – which brings together every year about 300 participants coming from 25 Countries. For the meeting, which will take place in February 2015, Florence Convention Bureau is offering an operative support to the organisation committee for the choice of the best local locations and for the selection of the services reserved for the participants.

The delegates expected in Florence from the 12 to 16th July 2015 will be 1,000 for the International Congress on Sound and Vibration with the intent of sharing and updating the progress of research in the sound and vibration control sector. Firenze Convention Bureau has worked on the candidature for this convention together with Firenze FIera and the Associazione Italiana di Acustica (AIA).

Carlotta Ferrari, Director of Firenze Convention Bureau, stresses: “The acquisition of these three conventions confirms once again how much our city is considered as a destination of excellence for important national and international events. Apart from the prestige that these events bring to Florence, we ought to consider also the important economic effect that these generate on the territory, creating precious investment and employment opportunities.”
