Rimini is one of the most popular locations for meetings, events, and conferences in Italy and Europe.Easy to reach by train, plane and car, Rimini is home to several highly specialised facilities and services, offering great functionality in a charming, lively city dedicated to hospitality and tourism.
With over 1,500 accommodation facilities – including hotels, farm stays, and B&Bs – to meet a wide range of budgets and needs, plus a great choice of restaurants, bars and leisure activities, Rimini is the perfect place to host and attend all kinds of prestigious conferences, congresses, and events.
What’s more, Rimini is also home to one of Europe’s most impressive conference centres: the Palacongressi. This conference centre is located in a charming park district just a stone’s throw away from the old town and is well connected to the waterfront via a cycle and pedestrian walkway along the Raggio Verde.
Rimini Conference Centre is an ambitious building at the cutting-edge of functionality, capacity, and eco-sustainability. With its flexible modular structure (up to 39 conference rooms containing a total of 9,000 seats), its large entrance foyer (over 4000m²), spacious “shell-amphitheatre” with 1,540 seats, and a huge plenary hall (up to 4,700 seats), which can be configured into independent rooms of variable sizes, it is a real gem in terms of architecture, logistics, and organisational efficiency.
From a technological standpoint, its facilities rank among the most innovative in existence and can satisfy even the most complicated requirements. All rooms are connected via a control system and a dedicated IT network (ADSL, ISDN, optical fibre, and satellite), which also provides a link to external networks, including a video-conference connection with several conference centres at the same time.
The recently built Rimini Exhibition Centre (now managed by Italian Exhibition Group SpA) is a state-of-the-art facility. Opened in 2001 and subsequently expanded in 2017, the exhibition centre spans a total area of approximately 500,000m² and attracts millions of visitors every year. Equipped with 16 large, elegant pavilions, charming outdoor areas with fountains and arcades, 24 conference rooms, and 14 restaurants, bars and pizzerias, the exhibition centre even has a dedicated railway station, over 11,000 parking spaces, a bus terminal, and a helitaxi service (by reservation only).
What’s more, Rimini Exhibition Centre hosts a plethora of amazing events each year, including SIGEP (the International Exhibition of Ice Cream, Pastry, Artisan Bakery, and Coffee), RiminiWellness (one of the world’s largest events dedicated to fitness, wellness, business, sports, training and nutrition), Macfrut (an event dedicated entirely to fruit and vegetables), TTG (the International Tourism Fair), Tecnargilla (the International Exhibition of Technology and Supply for the Ceramic and Brick Industry), and last but not least, Ecomondo (the International Fair of Matter, Energy Recovery and Sustainable Development for the technological and industrial innovation of the circular economy).
To conclude, in addition to impressive facilities such as the Palacongressi and the exhibition centre, Rimini also boasts a great network of hotels and accommodation facilities,which are equipped with meeting rooms and specialise in events management, business meetings, and conferences, while also welcoming guests for relaxing and pleasant remote working trips.
VisitRimini also offers fantastic team building and turnkey services and is more than happy to organise corporate events, dinners, celebratory events, meetings and entertainment for conference attendees, employees, and trade fair visitors.
