An event hosted at Genoa’s Conference Center located inside Porto Antico’s historical Magazzini del Cotone is a guarantee of success. A venue highly valued by meeting planners, able to meet all conference, convention, exhibit and entertainment requirements perfectly.

First of all the spaces: the Auditorium, with a capacity of 1480 seats and divisible into 2 separate mirror-like meeting rooms, is matchless thanks to its theatrical structure and central stage. Thirteen different sized rooms, with 8500 sq. m of space to fit varied arrangements; outdoor spaces along the Molo Vecchio quay.

Added value is the proximity to Airport, Train stations, motorways and hotels, as well as the possibility to visit, at a walking distance, the historical centre with its churches and Palaces, declared UNESCO World Heritage Site.
A location justly ranked amongst Italy’s main conference destinations.
