In December 2020, the Municipality of Milan officially launched the City’s Convention Bureau to boost business tourism and respond to a longstanding need expressed by national and international operators.
The YesMilano Convention Bureau is the primary interface between the city and organizers of MICE events in Milano. The Bureau’s goal is to attract business visitors to the city, by providing free and impartial support to all buyers and sellers who intend to come to Milano and promote the metropolitan location as a prime destination for organizers and participants of business events, congresses, meetings, incentive trips, conventions, and international events, while supporting the whole supply chain for the production of MICE events. The mission of YesMilano Convention Bureau is to make your business event successful and your Milanese experience memorable.
