Milan Capital of Conventions

MiCo Milano
MiCo Milano

MiCo, the convention center of Fiera Milano next to fieramilanocity, will host the ministerial meetings scheduled during the semestre of Italian Presidency of the European Union Council. It will start at the beginning of July, with the meeting of the European Ministers for Justice and Internal Affairs; followed by Co-operation and Development, Environment, Work, Defence, Infrastructure and Transport, Energy.

The agenda of appointments, which will span four months, is truly long and dense: it will close in mid-October with the 10th Summit of Heads of State and the ASEM Government (Asia-Europe Meeting), the Euro-asiatic Forum of which the European Union, ASEAN (Association of South East Asian Nations) and other Countries, among which Australia, China, Korea, Japan, India and Indonesia are members.

Meetings and works will be hosted in the north wing of the convention center, which will be exclusively reserved for the Italian Presidency semester. The participants will have 24 halls and 80 offices on 4 floors, for over 30,000 meters squared. For this appointment, that part of the convention center has been restored by Fiera Milano with an investment of 3,5 million Euros.

"We are proud that he Government has chosen the spaces and settings of Fiera Milano Congressi", declared the CEO of Fiera Milano, Enrico Pazzali. "MiCo is the largest and most modern Convention Center in Europe and being chosen for important political appointments for the European semestre is the highest level of recognition for its absolutely excellent standards, which the upgrading given to the building, which is almost now complete, has further strenghtened - if possible. From July the European Government will relocate to Milan: this is a great achievement, for which we have given the maximum commitment, even with the conviction of  having to capture this formidable occasion for the international image and visibility of  Milan. I also think that the fact that we have enforced setting up solutions and use of the facility is highly appreciable, in times of spending review, and aims at obtaining maximum economic efficiency: the convention of the Italian semestre will probably be among the least expensive of all time."
