Hotels in Milan, Italy Get Down to Business at the MICE & More Network Events

The Travel Industry's Best and Brightest Convene at the Milan Marriott Hotel

MILAN, ITALY -- (Marketwired) -- 05/21/14 -- Travel is exciting for most people, including, it turns out, those who work in the industry. While the rest of us might focus on an exotic destination or a state-of-the-art conference space, travel professionals focus on just one big trip: The MICE & More network Events held on May 27, 2014 at the Milan Marriott Hotel.

Some 50 exhibitors and 200 companies are expected to attend the symposium, including events managers, travel managers, directors of marketing and communication and personal assistants from a number of leading Italian businesses.

As they arrive at their designated meeting room in Milan, delegates will find a number of exciting exhibits and workshops featuring the best packages, offers and destinations within the MICE world. A well-being corner, buffet and even an exciting surprise scheduled for the end of the conference add an element of fun to the day's workshops. One of the most important exhibits -- the Milan Marriott booth -- will be manned by Sales Executive Gabriella Di Ubaldo and Senior Sales Manager Danilo Cinci, who will personally welcome guests to the MICE & More Events' sponsor and host property.

As one of the most event-friendly hotels near the Milan Airport, the Milan Marriott is unmatched when it comes to hosting conferences like this one. Its 22 meeting rooms afford 24,757 square feet of flexible space that can be as elegant or functional as necessary. On-site, professional event managers ensure a seamless meeting experience, and mouthwatering catering makes breaks something everyone can look forward to.

Such gracious hospitality in the meeting room sets the tone for what guests will find elsewhere on property. In addition to sumptuous comfort within the 321 guest rooms and suites, the hotel gives visitors a tantalizing taste of restaurants in Milan, Italy, thanks to its La Brasserie de Milan Restaurant (featuring an open-view kitchen and regional specialties) and Bar 66. So much good cooking ensures guests will have plenty of energy to tour the bevy of nearby attractions. As one of the best Milan hotels near the Duomo, this property puts visitors within steps of exclusive shops and boutiques, da Vinci's "The Last Supper" at Cenacolo Vinciano and more. It's no wonder, then, that those who know the business-travel industry better than anyone else would choose this destination for its conference.

About the Milan Marriott Hotel
The Milan Marriott Hotel embodies the sort of elegance and service befitting a hotel located within one of the world's foremost fashion capitals. Its city-center location means the airport is as close as the city's top museums, shops and restaurants. But once within its traditional lobby, guests find themselves transported in another way. Richly appointed guest rooms feature marble bathrooms, LCD televisions, spacious work areas and luxurious Revive bedding. Restaurants embrace the Italian love of cooking with Mediterranean options at both La Brasserie de Milan Restaurant and Bar 66. And 22 meeting rooms are flexible enough to welcome groups both large and small, while a fitness center outfitted with cardiovascular equipment and free weights provides an exciting way to work off the pasta and tiramisu. Milan may be known for fashion, but the Milan Marriott Hotel offers function as well.

It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...
Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...
